Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Holy Trinity Stacksteads continues to provide an excellent standard of education for all its pupils. Pupils are highly enthusiastic about their learning and make outstanding progress. Pupils typically reach above-average standards in English and mathematics by the time they leave at the end of Year 6.

Excellent individual help and guidance mean that pupils who are supported by additional funding, such as those supported by the pupil premium, disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, do especially well. Teaching is outstanding in all year groups. Lessons are challenging and focus on developing basic skills whic...h will ensure pupils are well prepared for the next stages in their education.

Work is marked regularly and pupils respond to teachers' written comments. However, high quality work is often let down by poor presentation. Pupils' behaviour and attitudes are outstanding.

They are highly motivated and engage readily in their learning. Relationships with each other and adults are excellent. Pupils feel safe and parents have great confidence in the way the school teaches and looks after them.

The headteacher is a leader of the highest quality, and the team of senior and other leaders is highly effective in constantly improving the quality of teaching and learning. The governing body is well led and plays an important role in driving school improvement.

The school meets the current floor standards, which set the government's minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. Since the previous inspection there have been a number of changes in staffing. The headteacher has been at the school for a considerable time, and supports other schools.
