What is it like to attend this school?

Pupils bring to life Cambrai Primary School's vision of 'growing great people who do great things'. Pupils flourish in the dynamic and highly engaging learning environment. Cambrai is an extraordinary school.

Its relentless focus on doing the best for all pupils and families, including military families, is exemplary. Leaders have the highest expectations for all pupils. They ensure that pupils leave with the best possible outcomes.

The meticulous and deliberate planning of trips and visits ensures that pupils experience a range of exciting wider opportunities. Pupils talk passionately about these experiences. These progress systematically from an after-school club fo...r children in Reception to an overnight stay at another school in Year 4.

Leaders take extensive steps to ensure that all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), can access these activities.

Pupils' behaviour is exceptional. From the youngest age, children are kind and caring.

As pupils get older, they take responsibility for other pupils' well-being. Pupils learn the 'Cambrai Way' from the day that they start. They embrace the values of the school.

As a result, pupils are happy and safe.

What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

The broad and ambitious curriculum that pupils receive is exceptional. In all subjects, the knowledge that teachers expect pupils to achieve is clear.

This means that pupils who have gaps in their understanding are swiftly supported to ensure they keep up with their peers. The school has designed the curriculum carefully to provide opportunities for pupils to use their prior knowledge to deepen their learning. For example, in geography, Reception children learn to describe the features of Catterick Garrison, and in Year 2, pupils compare the features of London and Nairobi.

Leaders' careful attention to the curriculum ensures that pupils are making excellent progress.

The school weaves reading opportunities throughout the curriculum. Due to the high-quality support from expert adults, pupils learn to read from the earliest of ages.

The school quickly identifies pupils who may need support to keep up with their peers. Intervention is swift and highly effective. Pupils read very well.

They are excited about the books they read. Pupils read to relax. They love to read in the creative areas in the school, such as the wigwam or on the beds.

The school embraces these pupils and quickly identifies any support they need to access the Cambrai curriculum. Leaders accurately and swiftly identify the individual needs of pupils with SEND.

Adults expertly design and deliver learning activities which inspire the children to learn. Children behave exceptionally well and are in established routines. They articulate their learning with precise language.

For example, when learning about the Chinese New Year, children can explain that a dragon is a mythical creature. The impressive language children use is a result of exceptionally high-quality interactions with adults.

The strong partnership between the school and families ensures that pupils' attendance is excellent.

Pupils enjoy attending school and parents value the exceptional quality of education the school provides.

The school is resolute in developing the whole child. It places the highest value in its personal development curriculum.

The fantastic school grounds give pupils the opportunity to play and take risks at play times. The school deliberately plans the wealth of play opportunities to develop different characteristics and allow children to explore.

Opportunities for pupils to take on different leadership roles are extensive.

The Safety Squad identifies risks in the local area and supports fellow pupils to understand those risks. They recently led an assembly on water safety due to the proximity of the River Swale. The 'Cambrai Crew' group raised funds for a local charity with their Santa dash event.

The bountiful opportunities available help pupils develop beyond the traditional curriculum areas and understand what it is to be a good citizen.
