Ofsted inspectors say pupils at a Coventry primary school have a 'love for learning'. They carried out an inspection at Christ The King Catholic Primary School in Scots Lane.

In their report, the government body officials say that the school remains ' good' but hinted that, if a more detailed inspection is undertaken, it could be rated 'outstanding'. In the report the school is praised for being a 'highly inclusive, vibrant school.'

"The school motto, ‘learning, growing and praying together’, threads through every aspect of school life," the report reads "They (the pupils) feel safe and secure."

The inspection report continues: "The school is ambitious for all pupils to do well regardless of background or starting points. These ambitions are realised. Pupils achieve highly, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Pupils with SEND are fully involved in lessons and in the wider life of the school. Pupils know that they are expected to behave in ways that support the school values: compassion, love, respect. They do so.

"They show a love of learning. This starts with the exciting, ambitious early years curriculum. An exceptionally positive learning atmosphere threads through the school. The provision for pupils’ wider development is exemplary."

It goes on to mention 'special features' including a fields and forest school, as well as the number of external visitors including the ‘Art Lady’, who was described as a 'firm favourite'. It adds that the school’s commitment to continual improvement is a 'key strength' and a particularly successful aspect of the school’s curriculum is the way that pupils build up and deepen their subject knowledge from early years up to Year 6.

The report about the school, which is part of the Holy Cross Catholic MAC, adds that pupils with SEND are quickly identified and 'high-quality. Individual plans are in place as well as extra tailored care and support given by skilled adults to students with more complex needs.

It says that the school’s provision for pupils’ wider personal development is 'exemplary' and its programme of after-school clubs is 'extensive', from sewing to cooking and chess.

The report concludes: "Staff are overwhelmingly positive about all that school leaders do. Staff feel their workload is well managed. Knowledgeable governors and directors are committed to their roles. They help to make the school the thriving place that it is."
