Key findings

Broad Chalke is an outstanding school. All groups of pupils make rapid progress and by Year 6 attainment in English and mathematics is high. This is a significant improvement since the last inspection.

Information and communication technology (ICT) and sport are also strengths of the school. Teaching is outstanding and all teachers assess pupils very carefully, regularly setting targets for improvement. Pupils are fully involved in this process and very clear about how to improve their work.

This is another significant improvement since the last inspection. The Reception class provides an excellent start for children. However, there are missed opportunities to evaluate this strong picture by c...omparing outcomes with national trends at the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

A creative, exciting and exceptionally well planned curriculum fully engages pupils, ensuring that they are highly motivated to learn. Their behaviour is exemplary, especially during lessons where they demonstrate clearly their enthusiasm and highly mature attitudes to learning. Attendance is very high.

All safeguarding procedures are fully in place and pupils feel very safe in school. They are very well known to all adults and exceptionally well looked after. The school's excellent provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development underpins the extremely positive climate for learning.

Excellent relationships and mutual respect exist between pupils and staff, alongside a willingness to contribute together to all areas of school life. Bullying is extremely rare. An outstanding leadership team, working together with a skilled and challenging governing body, has ensured that all key issues identified at the time of the last inspection have significantly improved.

High quality professional development has led to knowledgeable subject leaders and outstanding teaching. This, together with a reorganisation of staff and systematic performance management and monitoring of teaching, clearly demonstrates that the school has strong capacity to build on its many strengths.

Information about the school

Broad Chalke is a smaller-than-average-sized primary school.

Pupils come from the village and the surrounding area. Almost all pupils are of White British heritage and none is at the early stages of learning English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs (supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs) is below average.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is below average. There is a privately run pre-school on site which was not part of this inspection. The school meets the current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectation for pupils' attainment and progress.
