Motivated pupils and ambitious teachers are ensuring standards are improving at a Cleveleys primary school.

Manor Beach Primary School has maintained its good Ofsted rating after impressing inspectors with learning that is “fun” and motivates children.

The school on Manor Drive, which has a higher than average number of children with special educational needs or considered to be transient or disadvantaged, was given a glowing report along with clear pointers on how to improve.

Its “effective” support for children with higher needs was particularly praised.

Inspectors noted:

> Pupils are keen to learn and say their teachers make learning fun.

> Teachers plan activities that pupils enjoy and these often act as a stimulus for writing.

It was acknowledged that the high proportion of transient students, along with some children with complex additional needs, impacted on the school’s exam data. But overall “pupils make good progress across the school and achieve well.”

Inspectors said they felt confident the school could now improve further, adding that leaders “know what needs to be done to continue to improve and have the skill and expertise to achieve their high ambitions.”
