Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and governing body have set high standards of professionalism and expect all to aspire to these. Teachers and teaching assistants have risen to this challenge and, as a result, the quality of teaching has improved rapidly over recent years. Teaching is now very well led.

Teaching is now led and organised very well. Teachers follow effective strategies consistently throughout the school. These have led to considerable improvement in the way mathematics and English are taught.

Teachers closely monitor the progress that pupils make and they use this information to inform their planning. Leaders and managers use the informatio...n skilfully to identify the slowing of pupils' progress and are able to intervene quickly with a carefully planned response whenever necessary. Pupils' achievement continues to improve.

In classes, pupils have highly positive attitudes to their learning. They work enthusiastically and work well in groups. All adults in the school are excellent role models for pupils.

Consequently, everyone shows respect for each other. Pupils say that there is no bullying and that teachers deal with disagreements between pupils quickly and effectively. Pupils feel very safe.

Parents rightly believe that their children are safe in this school. Systems to ensure that pupils are safe and well looked after are very effective. A nurturing and caring culture pervades the school.

A very large proportion of parents who made their views known are highly supportive of the work of the school. Pupils' social and moral development is very strong. Since the last inspection, the school has received high-quality support from the local authority.

This has contributed well to the school's improvement. It is not yet an outstanding school because : While great strides have been made in improving the curriculum in English and mathematics, improvements in other subjects have been slower. Pupils have too few opportunities to learn beyond the classroom.

The criteria that leaders and managers use to evaluate the impact of school improvements are too vague. Full report

Information about this school

Blackmoor Park Junior School is larger than the average-sized school. Since the last inspection, a new deputy headteacher and a new special educational needs coordinator have joined the school.

In addition, four teachers have joined the staff. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium is below average. The pupil premium is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority.

Most pupils are of White British heritage. Very few pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is above average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress by the end of Year 6. Until recently, the school was supported by a NLE who is headteacher at Great Crosby Catholic Primary School. The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about governance and curriculum on its website.
