Bracken Lane Primary Academy was last inspected by Ofsted in January 2013, and we retained our overall judgement of ‘Good’.

Some of the highlights of the inspection were:

“Pupils behave well and say they feel safe and cared for well.”

– Ofsted

  • teaching is good overall and some of it is outstanding
  • almost all the pupils make good or better progress and learn well in their lessons
  • results when the pupils leave year 6 are well above the national average
  • the school is using additional funding effectively to raise standards and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals are making good and improved progress
  • pupils behave well and say they feel safe and cared for well
  • pupils enjoy school because the lessons are made interesting and fun
  • the regular checks on teaching and the advice given to teachers have ensured that the teaching is good and sometimes outstanding
  • governors are extremely knowledgeable about the school because they regularly check on how well it is doing. They are therefore able to provide an excellent balance of support and challenge
