Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage make excellent progress from their different starting points. Pupils throughout the school achieve exceptionally well and reach well above average standards in reading, writing and mathematics. Teaching is consistently good and frequently outstanding and has improved since the last inspection.

Expectations of pupils are always high and work in books is of a high standard. Challenging activities are set for pupils of all different abilities and so they make rapid progress. Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, pupils eligible for the pupil premium and those who speak... English as an additional language make excellent progress because the support they are given is well matched to their needs.

Pupils are not always given precise enough guidance on how to improve their work, particularly in mathematics. Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning and conduct themselves with maturity around school. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding.

Pupils are involved in improving the school and procedures to keep them safe are thorough. The school is exceedingly well led and managed by the headteacher, very ably supported by the deputy headteacher, other leaders and governors. Checks on the quality of teaching and achievement of pupils are meticulous and show marked improvement over time.

Governors fully understand the strengths and areas for development of the school and have been very effective in supporting leaders in their drive for improvement. All staff and governors work together well to move the school forward. All staff are highly valued and are committed to helping all pupils reach their potential.

Staff morale is high. The curriculum is rich and provides pupils with a wide range of memorable experiences to improve their basic skills and promote their personal development very well.

Information about this school

Alderley Edge Community Primary School is slightly smaller than the average-sized primary school.

The majority of pupils are of White British heritage and a small but increasing proportion is from minority ethnic backgrounds, some of whom speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, including those known to be eligible for free school meals, is below the national average. (The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children who are looked after by the local authority.) The number of pupils joining and leaving the school part way through their education is above average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The school runs a breakfast- and after-school club for its pupils which formed part of the inspection. There is a privately run pre-school which is inspected separately and reports for this can be found at www.
