Katherines Primary told to improve by Ofsted

KATHERINES primary school in Harlow has been told to improve by Ofsted.

The watchdog came to the school last month and issued a report last week.

The report states:

THE achievement of pupils requires improvement. Attainment levels in reading and mathematics at the end of Year 6 are below average.

While many pupils make expected progress, not enough are making the accelerated progress required in order to raise standards by the end of Key Stage 2.

The quality of teaching has not been consistently good over time to ensure that gaps in learning are being closed quickly enough. Many teachers are in the early stages of developing their career.

Although governors are now monitoring more carefully what school leaders are doing, they are not yet evaluating the progress pupils’ are making or teachers’ performance with sufficient rigour. In addition, there is not yet a full complement of governors in place.

The report also focusses on the good points.

It states:

Since the last inspection, senior leaders have made considerable improvements in the school. This includes improvements to pupils’ achievement and the quality of teaching.

Pupils’ behaviour in lessons and around school is good. They are keen to learn and their ability to work happily with one another contributes positively to their learning.
