Through clearly focused and supportive leadership, they have driven significant improvements across the school. As a result, pupils at Billesley Primary School receive an education of the highest quality. Teachers benefit from highly effective coaching and professional development, which has enabled them to become skilled practitioners.

The quality of teaching is consistently strong across the curriculum. Consequently, pupils make excellent progress, especially in reading, writing and mathematics. The curriculum provides pupils with rich and meaningful learning experie...nces.

It is planned carefully to help pupils make strong progress across a wide range of subjects. The strength of the curriculum shows in the pupils' joy in learning. The provision for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is outstanding.

Disadvantaged pupils also receive exceptional support. This enables these pupils to make excellent progress in all subjects. Pupils' eagerness and desire to learn are reflected in their very good attendance and extremely positive behaviour around school.

An air of calmness permeates the whole school. The quality of the early years provision is remarkable. Leadership of early years is outstanding, and teaching is consistently very effective.

Children benefit from an inspiring learning environment. As a result, children in early years thrive socially and emotionally and excel in their learning. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development is a key strength.

It helps pupils to become considerate and thoughtful individuals. Pupils have secure foundations to become responsible citizens in their community, modern Britain and the wider world. The multi-academy trust (MAT) and the local governing body (LGB) provide leaders with excellent support and challenge.

They make a significant contribution to school improvement. Teaching assistants have a very positive influence on pupils' learning. They know and understand pupils' needs, and their support helps pupils to become more independent in their learning.
