“Pupils’ outcomes are improving strongly and have risen significantly since the last inspection.”

“The curriculum is well planned to meet pupils’ needs, especially those at an early stage of learning English.”
Headteacher, Richard O’Sullivan, said: “We are delighted with Ofsted’s findings and it is clear they see the school as we do.
“This is another example of the good leadership and effectiveness of primary schools within the BD3 area, with several other schools in our locality also being judged to be Good. This is testimony to the improvements being made in our area.”
Coun Imran Khan, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Education, Employment and Skills, said: “This positive outcome is excellent news for all those at Byron Primary and all those who have worked so hard to bring about this achievement”
