Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Standards have been consistently well above the national averages in English and mathematics for five consecutive years. All groups of pupils, no matter what their starting points, make outstanding progress throughout all year groups. Much teaching is outstanding and teachers plan interesting and often inspiring activities which pupils enjoy greatly.

Homework is exceptionally well used to extend learning. Leaders at all levels and teachers have very high expectations of all pupils. Despite being a large school, each child is recognised as a unique individual and learning activities are exceptionally well matched to their individu...al needs.

Most marking of work clearly informs pupils as to what level they are working at and what they have to do to reach higher levels. Occasionally, some marking does not clearly illustrate to pupils precisely what they need to do that will really stretch them to higher levels. Pupils have exemplary attitudes towards their learning.

They enjoy school, have an excellent understanding of how to keep themselves safe, behave outstandingly well and look after each other with care and understanding. The range of clubs and extra activities provided by the school are extensive and this contributes significantly to extending pupils' creative, musical, sporting and other skills and the number of pupils that take part is exceptionally high. The headteacher, senior leaders and the governing body provide inspirational leadership, creating a strong vision for high expectations and hold all adults to account in the pursuit of these high aspirations.

As a result, the quality of teaching is strongly improving and achievement is rising. Pupils say they are proud of their school and their own achievements and parents' comments and responses show they are overwhelmingly positive about all aspects of the school. Pupils are exceptionally well equipped for the next stage of their education.

Information about this school

Broomfields is much larger than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is broadly average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average.

The proportion of pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for children in the care of the local authority or known to be eligible for free school meals) is below average. Most pupils are from White British heritage. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups who attend the school is well below average, as is the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language.

The school meets the government's floor standard, which is the minimum expected for pupils' attainment and progress. There is a before- and after-school club called the Jolly Days Link Club located on the school site which is not managed by the governing body. This report can be found on the Ofsted website.
