Primary is rated good

THE Hill Primary School in Caversham has been awarded a “good” rating by Ofsted.

THE Hill Primary School in Caversham has been awarded a “good” rating by Ofsted.

Inspectors who visited the Peppard Road school last month found that year 6 attainment was “on track to reach above-average attainment in national tests at the end of the year”.

Their report also highlighted that attainment by the end of Key Stage 1 had risen steadily since 2010.

The school’s management was praised for being “highly ambitious” and for successfully driving continual improvement in pupils’ achievement and in the quality of teaching.

The inspectors recommended that the school focuses on progress in writing, which they said was not as strong as in reading or mathematics, in order to achieve an outstanding rating.

Headteacher Dawn Cox said: “Our motto is ‘Growing Good People’ and Ofsted affirms that the Hill Primary promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development outstandingly well.”

The Chiltern College Nursery, also in Peppard Road, Caversham, has been given an “outstanding” rating by Oftsed for the third consecutive time. It was praised for its “inspirational” management and leadership.
