Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, governors and middle leaders have put in place – and are delivering – highly effective plans for success. As a result, Springfield Community Primary School is thriving. Staff morale is high, which is reflected in the way they work as a team to support pupils.

Staff training and support are excellent. Most pupils make good progress across the school in reading and writing. However, not enough pupils make good progress in mathematics by the time they reach key stage 2.

Furthermore, not enough pupils attain the highest levels or greater depth in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of key stages 1 and 2. Pupils make g...ood progress in a range of subjects, including geography, music, physical education (PE), design and technology, art and science. The early years provision is good.

Children make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics from starting points which are below skills typical for their age. Teaching across the school is consistently good. Teachers have strong subject knowledge which they use to plan interesting lessons so that pupils enjoy their learning.

Teaching assistants provide effective support, particularly for those pupils who fall behind or are new to the school. Pupils who are disadvantaged, pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and pupils who arrive at the school late in the primary phase make good progress. Spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding is very strong.

As a result, behaviour in lessons and around the school is almost always good. Pupils, parents, carers and staff hold very positive views of the school. The school is a happy, purposeful and safe place to learn and work.
