ALL pupils at Rangeworthy Church of England Primary School are making good progress towards reaching higher standards, an inspector from Ofsted has said.

In the first short inspection since the end of 2013, when the school was judged to be good, Catherine Beeks said the leadership team had maintained the good quality of education. 

But she said some pupils could make even better progress and the school should ensure that teaching further challenged youngsters in both key stages so they reached the highest standards of which they were capable.

 Ms Beeks said headteacher James Powell, although only in post for one term at the time of her visit, was well respected and his high aspirations had raised expectations of what the children could achieve.

She said: “Morale is high and staff are proud to be part of the school. They are keen to play their part in school improvement. 

“Pupils are very sociable, happy and well mannered. The overwhelming majority of parents are pleased with the work of the school.”
