Burnley school told to be more consistent
12:54pm Tuesday 19th February 2013 in News
A BURNLEY primary school has been told it ‘requires improvement’.
Cherry Fold Primary School, in Cog Lane, was visited by Ofsted inspectors who found pupils did not make consistently good progress, especially in writing.
Lead inspector Gillian Salter-Smith said in a report: “Teaching is not yet consistently good enough to help all pupils catch up fully where they have fallen behind.
“Teachers do not always make writing activities exciting enough and there are not enough chances for pupils to write about subjects they enjoy in different parts of the curriculum.
“School leaders and the governing body are making some improvements in teaching and pupils’ achievement. However, they know that there is even more to do to iron out inconsistencies in teaching.”
The report added that some progress had however been made in mathematics and reading and that the school did a great deal to help parents to support their children’s learning.
