Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Pupils generally achieve well as a result of good and improving teaching. Their attainment is above average by the end of Year 6 in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils' behaviour and arrangements to keep them safe are outstanding.

Pupils are exceptionally polite and considerate, and are very enthusiastic about learning new things. Members of staff have high expectations for pupils' behaviour and set a good example. Teachers are knowledgeable and provide interesting activities that inspire the pupils to want to learn.

Leadership and management, including governance, provide a strong driving force for the school, and are sure that pupils' achievement and teaching are good and are continuing to improve rapidly. Provision for pupils' spiritual, moral and social development is strong, preparing pupils well for life in modern Britain. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Achievement in mathematics is not consistently strong for all groups of pupils across the school.

Teachers do not always make sure that pupils are moved on to the next stage of learning quickly enough. Teachers, on occasion, do not check sufficiently in their mathematics teaching that disabled pupils and those with special educational needs understand what they are to learn. Teachers do not always encourage pupils, including the most able, to make full use of their literacy and numeracy skills to support their learning in other subjects.

Information about this school

Charlton Kings Junior School is larger than the average junior school. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium, which is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after, is well below average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is broadly average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Charlton Kings Junior School converted to become an academy school on 1 August 2011. When its predecessor school, with the same name, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good.
