A PRIMARY school has been praised for its ‘dynamic leadership’ by an education watchdog as it retained its ‘good’ rating.

Ofsted visited Accrington Huncoat Primary School earlier this year and a report has now been released.

Inspector Ahmed Marikar said the school ‘continues to be good’ after its last inspection in 2012.

Work of pupils was also praised in the report.

Following the inspection Mr Marikar said in a letter detailing his findings: “The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection."

He also found parents’ views of the school were ‘very positive’ and the school held a variety of extra-curricular activities.

To further improve the school it has been recommend to improve the standards pupils reach in reading by the end of key stage two and the progress of disadvantaged pupils in science.

Sean Crosier was headteacher at the time of the inspection, but he has since left and been replaced by Rachel Dickinson for the new academic year.
