A PRIMARY school near Guiseley has retained its Good rating from Ofsted following a recent inspection.

Hawksworth CE Primary School, in Main Street, Hawksworth, was praised by inspectors for its management of a "significant change in staffing" since the previous inspection four years ago.

Inspectors said: "The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.

"You have managed significant changes in staffing since the previous inspection and created an enthusiasm for new staff to take on subject leadership roles.

With your support, and careful investment in professional development, new leaders are effective in their roles and ensuring that pupils make good progress in their learning.

"Staff and pupils work well together in a calm and purposeful environment.

"Parents and carers are exceptionally pleased with the school’s work with their children.

"Pupils have positive attitudes to learning. Teachers create plenty of opportunities for pupils to answer questions and engage fully in their learning.

"This was an aspect you were asked to improve at the previous inspection and you have been successful in doing so.

"At the time of the previous inspection, your plans for improvement did not show how much the actions being taken would contribute to improving teaching and learning.

"Your plans now show clearly what you expect to improve and by how much. Staff and governors know well the school’s priorities and your expectations."
