An Ofsted inspection of Brook Field Primary School in Shaw in mid-January declares that it is a good school, with some outstanding features.
It says pupils love coming to school because they learn interesting things in interesting and imaginative ways. They make good progress and by the time they leave the standards they reach are well above national averages.
Teaching is good and some is outstanding. Children’s work is carefully marked so they are confident about how to improve.
Great care is taken to make sure that pupils’ individual needs are met, whether these are to do with their work or their welfare. Pupils and parents agree that the school is a very safe place in which to learn.
Teaching assistants are skilled and provide high quality support for pupils of all abilities.
Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary and is considered outstanding. They are always polite and look after each other and their school exceptionally well.
Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted very well. Leaders, including governors, have high aspirations for the future success of the school and are doing the right things to make sure that the school continues to improve.
