Diggle Primary School received a Good from Ofsted following their recent inspection on the 10th and 11th October 2013.
Mrs. Covey, heateacher at the school said: “We are delighted with our recent Ofsted judgement of Good! We have worked really hard as a school community to improve the quality of provision.
“I am really pleased for the school and the pupils; I know that this judgement is well deserved.”
Pupils’ achievement is good. In all keys stages they make good progress in their learning.
Standards in reading are very high. Pupils read widely and often and with real enjoyment. This enables pupils to learn well in other subjects.
The school is a happy secure and welcoming place for pupils to learn well, where they feel safe and well cared for by everyone in the school.
Behaviour of pupils is generally very good in and around the school. Older pupils take on responsibility roles which they take very seriously. Pupils are very proud of their school.
A rich curriculum provides a wide range of opportunities for pupils to develop knowledge and a love of learning and practice their key skills in a range of subjects.
School leaders have a strong commitment, shared by all staff, to the continued raising of standards, improving the rate of pupils’ progress and the quality of teaching.
Robust systems of monitoring pupils’ progress and quality of teaching are bringing about continued school improvement.
Governance is much improved since the last inspection. Governors are well informed, provide challenge to school leaders and staff and hold the school to account for its performance.
