Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, senior leaders and governors are ambitious for pupils.

Their determination has made Boothferry Primary a flourishing and successful school. School leaders have taken effective action to ensure that pupils make at least good progress from their low starting points in reading, writing and mathematics in all year groups. Pupils who speak English as an additional language make rapid progress.

Disadvantaged pupils are also supported well to make good, and sometimes better, progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Leaders use funding well to ensure that pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make ...strong progress from their different starting points. Teachers, including those who are new to teaching, have high expectations, and they plan creative lessons that spark pupils' interest and inspire them to do well.

The most able pupils, however, are not always provided with challenging activities as soon as they are ready to move on in their learning. On these occasions, they make slower progress. The teaching of phonics is a strength and enables pupils to make rapid improvement in their early literacy skills.

Pupils' personal development and welfare are outstanding. Pupils thrive and are keen to learn. They know how to look after their well-being and how to keep safe.

The school is an inclusive and happy place. Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. Some boys in key stage 1 can sometimes be overly boisterous in the playground, particularly when they are not involved in purposeful activities.

Children get off to a strong start in early years. This is due to effective leadership and skilful teaching. The proportion of children reaching a good level of development is improving year-on-year.

However, assessment records do not provide the detail necessary to quickly identify the specific areas for children to improve. Leaders and staff have significantly improved the teaching of reading. Pupils are enthusiastic and frequent readers.

The curriculum is well designed to include a range of exciting themes, visits and visitors to enhance pupils' learning. Pupils become confident individuals who are well prepared for the next stage of their education. Although leaders regularly evaluate the quality of teaching across the curriculum, pupils' progress is not monitored as robustly in all subjects as it is in English and mathematics.
