Lapal Primary School was inspected by OFSTED on 1st March 2013. The overall judgement was good with some outstanding elements. The behaviour and safety of the children was judged to be outstanding and the Inspectors saw outstanding teaching and leadership throughout school.
The report comments on the wonderful behaviour of our children:
‘Pupils exemplary attitudes and high personal aspirations are reflected in a strong commitment to do their best in lessons. Their behaviour is excellent and they feel very safe’
The report also acknowledges the hard work of the staff and governors in driving forward school improvement:
‘An outstanding aspect of teaching is the positive climate in lessons that promote pupils’ active learning and full engagement.
The determined leadership of the Executive Headteacher, Head of school and Chair of Governors has secured rapid and strong improvements to pupils’ personal and academic achievement in a very short time.
The whole team including governors have high expectations for pupils’ success.’
