A HEADTEACHER has been praised for creating a new leadership structure and implementing improvements at a Blackburn school.

Following a short inspection, Ofsted said Lammack Primary School continues to be 'good'.

The Lammack Road school was last inspected in February 2013.

In a letter to headteacher Mrs Duckworth, inspector Julie Kynaston, said: "The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.

"This is an ambitious school where pupils’ academic and personal development are equally important. "Leaders ensure that pupils’ skills develop well across the wider curriculum.

"As a result, pupils are confident, resilient learners and are prepared thoroughly for the next stage of their education.

"Your strong leadership has established a culture of high expectations where everyone is valued and respected."

She said the next steps for the school include refining assessment procedures and ensuring teachers are provided with opportunities to develop greater consistency and accuracy in assessing pupils' progress.
