Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics to reach standards that are broadly average by the end of Year 6. Pupils with disabilities or special educational needs and those who are the least able make rapid progress. This is because leaders, teachers and teaching assistants provide excellent support to help them catch up.

Pupils are polite, considerate and well behaved. Pupils and their parents agree they are happy in school and have no concerns about behaviour or bullying. The school is a caring environment where the safety and well-being of pupils is a priority.

As a result, pupils feel and know how to keep ...themselves safe. The school's work to keep vulnerable pupils safe is exemplary. The school works exceptionally well with other partners to make sure pupils have the support they need.

The quality of teaching is good. Teachers explain new work carefully and then carefully question pupils to make sure they have understood. They plan work that is interesting and relevant so that pupils make good progress, particularly in their reading, writing and mathematical skills.

The headteacher is extremely well regarded by parents, governors and all who work with the school. The headteacher and other senior leaders take immediate and effective action to tackle weaker areas of performance. As a result, achievement in writing and the quality of teaching have both improved since the previous inspection.

The governing body have a good knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of the school. Governors provide able support to senior leaders while also challenging any underachievement to make sure the school improves. As a result, teaching, behaviour and achievement are all good.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not enough children are acquiring the skills they need during their time in the early years. Not enough of the most able pupils reach above average standards at the end of each key stage. Middle leaders do not have precise enough action plans nor are they involved in checking the quality of teaching in order to drive improvements more rapidly.

Information about this school

Broadgate Primary is similar in size to the average sized primary school. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those known to be eligible for the pupil premium, is above the national average. The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, and those children who are looked after by the local authority.

About half of pupils are of White British heritage. Although the proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is well above average, the very large majority of pupils speak English as their first language. The ethnic backgrounds of about 14% of pupils are diverse so that 13 different languages are represented.

No pupils are in the early stages of speaking English. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is higher than that found nationally. The school has a specialist unit called 'The Gateway', which provides support for pupils aged five to seven who are experiencing behavioural difficulties from a wider area.

There are currently no pupils in this provision, although the unit provides outreach advice and support on demand from other schools. The school meets the government's current floor standard, which is the minimum expectation for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6. The school has recently been awarded a Silver Quality Mark for school games.
