A SCHOOL has been praised by Ofsted inspectors for its quality education.
Teaching and the curriculum at Scholes Junior and Infant School, Holmfirth, were found to be good.
Pupils achieved well in English and maths.
They also behaved well and developed good attitudes to learning.
However, standards in information and communication technology were below national expectations and inspectors found computers were not used enough to support work on other subjects.
A school spokeswoman said its investment in new computers and training was too recent to have had an impact at the time of the inspection.
It now has an Information Communication Technology co-ordinator and a new ICT suite.
Mrs Sara Seymour, who was acting head teacher during the inspection, said: "Our Ofsted success was a whole school team effort, it reflects the hard-working conscientious pupils and staff at Scholes."
Inspectors found the school was well governed and managed and provided good value for money.
Day-to-day management of the school was effective and the contribution of the administrative staff was invaluable.
The school had made good overall improvement since its last inspection and achievement was high.
Mrs Yvonne Donkersley, head teacher, took over at Easter.
She said she was delighted with the Ofsted report.
Mrs Donkersley, a mother of two boys, has worked in a number of Kirklees schools including Meltham Primary School and Skelmanthorpe First and Nursery School.
