Savile Park Primary School has soared to the top of the class with a glowing Ofsted report.

The school at Moorfield Street, Halifax, was previously rated as good but is now classed as outstanding across all levels.

It was described as a remarkable school where pupils do expectionally well despite low starting points.

Teaching is outstanding and likewise the children’s behaviour.

“Pupils relish the caring attitude of the adults who are fully committed to ensuring the best learning experiences for them,” says the report.

Head teacher Karen Lomas and senior staff were praised for communicating their vision for the school with great success which helps secure the highest levels of pupil achievement.

The governing body performs impressively as it rigorously interrogates the school’s plans and subsequent actions.

The majority of Savile Park pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds and the school has many national awards including Investors in Pupils, the ICT Mark and Quality Mark.

Mrs Lomas said: “We are absolutely delighted with our inspection report.

“Savile Park really is a very special place and the report is testimony to the whole school family.

“Everyone was celebrated by the inspectors: governors, support and administrative staff, parents, teachers and, most importantly, our fabulous children.

“Our remarkable school is a result of team work, hard work and love; everyone goes the extra mile.”
