Pupils say that they are ‘proud to belong’ to a friendly primary school which has remained ‘good’.
Intack Primary School, in Whitebirk Road, Blackburn, was rated ‘good’ by Ofsted inspectors following an inspection on June 29 and 30.
Ofsted said that the pupils enjoy coming to school and that they embrace the motto of ‘proud to belong’.
Children behave well, listen carefully to staff members, are kind to each other and have built positive relationships with the staff.
Inspectors praised the eco-friendly nature of the school, saying that it has made the children ‘active and responsible citizens’.
The inspection added: “The eco-committee helps to look after the school grounds by keeping it free from litter.
“Some pupils have had recent success in an eco-conference competition.
“They designed and made a skirt from recycled plastic milk bottles and showcased it in the ‘trashion’ show.
“These experiences help pupils to appreciate the environment and to become active and responsible citizens.”
The school is said to provide an ‘ambitious and broad curriculum’ which is accessible to all children, including those with SEND.
There are some gaps in students’ knowledge in some subjects where leaders have not identified essential knowledge for the pupils to learn.
Teachers read to pupils, which the children told inspectors helps them ‘to learn new words and expand their imagination’.
Pupils are given a broad range of extracurricular activities including being on the school council or being ambassadors for sports and science.
Children told inspectors that staff deal well with bullying, and safeguarding practices are deemed to be effective.
The school was last inspected in 2017 when it was also deemed by inspectors to be ‘good’.
