Cramlington Learning Village has been rated good in its latest Ofsted inspection.

Staff, governors and pupils were praised in the report following a visit by the seven-strong inspection team.

Inspectors said effectiveness of leadership and management; the quality of teaching, learning and assessment; personal development, behaviour and welfare; outcomes for pupils, and 16 to 19 study programmes were good – helping give an overall good’ rating.

They found that ‘all pupils, and particularly those who are vulnerable, receive a high-quality education that prepares them well for life in modern Britain.’

They also noted the positive comments from pupils about the extra effort they received from staff to help and encourage them both in lessons and extra-curricular activities.

Inspectors added: ‘Pupils are proud of and speak warmly of their school.

‘This pleasure and pride in their learning and school also shows itself in the quality of pupils’ work in their books and folders.’

Jeff McCartney, chair of governors at Cramlington Learning Village, said: “Ofsted through its forensic inspection has understood and validated the many qualities of life at our school. We would like to underline the report’s praise of all members of the teaching and support staff, for their incredible hard work and dedication.”

“On behalf of the governors, the head teacher and her staff, I would also like to congratulate the pupils who continue to excel both as students and members of society.

“Their parents and carers can be very proud of them.”
