A Worle school continues to be good, inspectors said in a report.

The schools watchdog Ofsted held a short inspection at Castle Batch Community Primary School, in Rawlins Avenue, in November.

Its report, published this month, says the school continues to be good, four years after its last inspection.

Inspectors said: “When the school was previously inspected, the inspectors asked teachers to provide more challenge and feedback to pupils to help them increase the rate of progress.

“Inspectors also asked the school’s leaders to check the quality of teaching more regularly and provide more opportunities for staff to develop their skills further.

“You [headteacher Victoria Dupras] have successfully tackled these issues, although you recognise providing a consistent level of challenge to all pupils is an area for the school to work on further.”

The report says there is support for disadvantaged pupils.
