Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and governors have been responsible for rapid improvements in leadership, teaching and outcomes for pupils since the last inspection.

Parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school. More senior teachers are now involved in checking the quality of teaching and outcomes for pupils, extending the capacity of leadership in the school. Pupils' standards in reading, writing and mathematics are above average in key stages 1 and 2.

Pupils have made good progress from their different starting points. Pupils currently in the school are making good progress as a result of carefully planned activities that enable them... to do well. Teachers plan appropriately challenging work for most-able pupils to ensure that they do as well as they can.

Outcomes for children in the early years are good as a result of high expectations and a rich indoor learning environment. Pupils behave well. They are articulate and confident.

Older pupils thrive on taking on additional responsibilities, including supporting younger ones with their work. Governors are providing an increased level of challenge to the school's leaders, especially through regular monitoring days. They evaluate much of the school's work very well.

Leaders promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very well. The school's 12 core values underpin the whole life of the school. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The extent to which senior teachers have taken on enhanced leadership roles is variable.

Leaders have not evaluated the impact of the pupil premium in sufficient detail. The early years outdoor environment is very limited in its size and scope. Lower-attaining pupils who need to catch up rapidly are not as consistently well challenged in their work by teachers and additional adults as other pupils are.

Information about this school

Broadwas is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is about one in 15, which is well below the national average. There were no pupils with a statement of special educational need or education, health and care plan at the time of the inspection.

Almost all pupils are White British and speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils supported by pupil premium funding (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority) is well below the national average. The proportion of pupils who join or leave the school mid-way through a key stage is above the national average.

The headteacher was in post at the time of the last inspection. The chair of the governing body was appointed in 2014. There has been a high turnover of governors since the last inspection.

Three senior teachers have been given additional middle leadership responsibilities. Based on their 2015 results, the school meets the government's floor standards. These are the minimum standards expected for pupils' learning and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. There is a pre-school provision next door to the school, which is off-site and not overseen by the governing body. Most pupils transfer from there to Reception.
