A Wharfe Valley school, previously told to improve by inspectors, has "raised the bar", according to education watchdog Ofsted.

Addingham Primary School was inspected in July this year and was deemed to be good with outstanding features.

Back in 2014, it was given a 'requires improvement' judgement.

Inspectors awarded the top accolade of 'outstanding' for the Effectiveness of Leadership and Management.

Headteacher Hilary Cave said: "The report is extremely positive and highlights the many strengths of our school.

"The inspectors found the children to be an absolute delight and as a result they have awarded the school 'outstanding' for the personal development, behaviour and welfare of the children.

"We have an amazing team of teaching and non-teaching staff and governors at Addingham Primary School, as well as incredibly supportive parents and fantastic pupils.

"We could not have achieved this judgement without their continued hard work, dedication and commitment."

Councillor Imran Khan, Bradford Council's Executive Member for Education, Employment and Skills, said: "This is excellent news for Addingham Primary School.

"Pupils, staff, governors, parents and the wider community should be immensely proud of this positive outcome."
