Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Senior leaders with good support from governors are driving improvements forward, especially in teaching and learning. They have implemented a strong ethos for effective teaching and good behaviour across the school. Together they are ensuring that the school continues to improve.

Leaders at all levels are promoting pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development effectively, as well as their physical well-being. Good teaching across the school, including in the primary support base, is enabling all pupils to learn effectively. Teachers have developed a strong ethos for learning in their classrooms.

They make good use of well-ch...osen activities and resources to motivate pupils. Teaching assistants provide effective support for pupils' learning and behaviour. All staff have good relationships with pupils and manage their behaviour well.

Pupils' behaviour in lessons and throughout the school, including in the primary support base, is good. Pupils have positive attitudes to learning which is reflected in their good punctuality and attendance. Effective welfare arrangements ensure pupils are safe and promote their good personal development.

Pupils across the school, including those in the primary support base, make good progress from their different starting points in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils' work shows they make good progress across a wide range of subjects. In the early years provision, skilled leadership, effective teaching and strong links with parents, ensure children make good progress from their different starting points.

Children stay safe and their behaviour is good. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils are not always given sufficient time to respond to teachers' advice and guidance. Teachers' assessments are not always accurate.

Occasionally they miss opportunities to extend the thinking of more-able pupils at Key Stage 2. Subject leaders have not developed accurate systems of assessment within their subjects.

Information about this school

Bowmansgreen is larger than most primary schools.

The school has a six-place specially resourced unit on site, known as the primary support base. This caters for pupils with an education, health and care plan, or those with a statement of special educational needs arising from social, emotional and mental health needs. The proportion of pupils with disability and those who have special educational needs is broadly average.

The majority of pupils are of White British heritage and the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is above average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium is above average. The pupil premium is additional funding provided by the government for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority.

More pupils than average start or leave the school part of the way through their primary education. The school meets the government's current floor standard, which is the minimum expectation for students' attainment and progress by the end of Year 6. Since the last inspection, the school received a monitoring visit by Ofsted to determine how much progress it was making in meeting its areas of improvement.

Since the previous inspection there has been a significant increase in pupil numbers and a high turnover of staff. The leadership team has been restructured to include new phase leaders and single subject leaders for English and mathematics. The school has recently introduced a breakfast club for its pupils.
