A primary school in East Lancashire where pupils 'strive to meet the school’s high expectations' continues to be a good school.

Bradley Primary School, in Dover Street, Nelson, was inspected by Ofsted on April 30 and May 1, with the report being published on June 10.

The outcome of the Ofsted inspection was that Bradley Primary School continues to be a good school after its last short inspection in September 2018.

The report said: "Pupils embody the school’s aim of being respectful towards one another and to staff.

"They strive to meet the school’s high expectations for their behaviour. Pupils achieve this with ease. 

"Pupils make the most of the learning opportunities that the school provides for them and achieve well. Pupils value the opportunities that they have to take on responsibilities in school.

"For example, pupil librarians help to maintain the school library and they recommend books for others to read. Pupils benefit from the range of clubs available to them.

"These include different sporting activities as well as reading and art clubs. The school ensures that many pupils, including those who are disadvantaged, benefit from these clubs."

The school first received a good rating in 2013, and has sustained it since then.

To become outstanding, inspectors said certain areas in children's knowledge could be improved so they get the most out of their learning.

The report added: "In a small number of subjects, the school has not set out the important knowledge that pupils should learn.

"This makes it difficult for teachers to know what knowledge to prioritise when designing lessons. 

"As a result, in these subjects, some pupils have gaps in their knowledge and do not learn as well as they could."
