The school was inspected in September 2013, the results of which were published in October 2013.

In the report, Charlesworth School was described as a “good school” where “pupils respond well to the caring, nurturing atmosphere and ethos of the school.”.

The report recognised that “Teaching is consistently good.  There are some outstanding aspects in the Early Years Foundation Stage where children settle quickly.” and that “Teachers have high expectations. Pupils respond to this well and are proud of their achievements.”

It also stated the children feel safe and happy and enjoy coming to school, it noted the children’s politeness, their keenness to learn and their good behaviour – “pupils understand teachers’ expectations and these are supported by classroom rules which are clearly understood.  They work together well and listen carefully to each other.  Relationships are very positive and pupils are respectful whilst being friendly and open, eager to engage in conversation. 

There are areas for further development which the governors and staff will be focusing upon to raise standards for your children.
