Praise for Gateshead
TWO STRICTLY Orthodox independent schools have received positive reports from inspectors.
The Gateshead Cheder Primary School, which has 190 boys from three to 14, was ranked as a good school, which offered “rich learning opportunities” and where pupils made strong progress.
Pupils were “very well prepared” for life in modern Britain, while the school’s leadership “recognise diversity and promote the rights of protected groups” under the 2010 Equality Act, Ofsted said.
Inspectors, who returned to the Ateres Girls High School after its inadequate rating last year, found improvements in the curriculum, particularly in maths.
Ofsted noted that the school, which educates 229 girls from 11 to 16, had sought assistance from a neighbouring state school, Emmanuel College.
