Ingrow Primary School retains its good status

Ingrow Primary School has been judged to be good by Ofsted for the second time in five years.

In a glowing report the inspectors found that the “leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.”

The partnership between the Executive Headteacher and the Head of School was praised for “bringing about improvements to teaching and learning as well as addressing areas identified for improvement at the school’s last inspection.”

Leaders have raised expectations of pupils’ outcomes, and improved the quality of teaching, learning and assessment through good-quality professional development for staff and sharing in good practice at other schools.

The report acknowledges the “school’s inclusive support for some of the most vulnerable pupils” which has resulted in improved attendance and attitudes, and it notes how pupils “are keen to take on responsibilities as a school councillor or digital leader.”

Angela Vinnicombe, executive headteacher, said:  “This is a fantastic achievement for our school. I am so proud of everyone in the team.

“I am pleased that despite disruptive building work during the last two years, Ofsted has recognised that our focus on raising pupils’ achievement did not fade.

“The report reflects Ingrow Primary really well and highlights the many aspects that make our school, and our Federation with Long Lee Primary, a good one.

“Congratulations go to all pupils, staff, governors and the wider community in helping us achieve this positive outcome. We really do have a fabulous team working hard to ensure the best possible education for the children at Ingrow and Long Lee.”

Michael Jameson, Bradford Council’s Director of Children’s Services, said:  “This is great news for Ingrow, and indeed for the federation with Long Lee Primary School.  All of those who have worked so hard to maintain this good judgement should be very proud.”

Other comments in the report include:

  • Governors bring a range of expertise … which provides good support and challenge.
  • The school promotes good citizenship skills and pupils understand and show respect for people’s differences.
  • Pupils’ personal development and good attitudes to learning have been pivotal in raising aspirations.
  • The school has been successful in creating a culture where pupils take responsibility for their own learning.
