Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Pupils, staff and leaders live and breathe 'The Chilton Way'. Not only do pupils excel academically, but they develop and celebrate exceptional personal skills and qualities too.

Leaders at all levels unite in their shared purpose and steadfast determination to make the school the 'absolute best it can be'. Leaders are rightfully supremely confident in what they do, but this is tempered by their humility. The unfailing consistency with which staff at all levels follow the 'The Chilton Way' – an agreed ethos and approaches – is truly impressive.

The school's unwavering culture impeccably couples the highest aspirations for pupils w...ith extensive support, nurture and encouragement. Pupils thrive as a result. Children get off to a flying start in the excellent early years provision.

In an entirely age-appropriate manner, children start to experience and learn 'The Chilton Way' from the outset, and their exciting journey through the school begins. Leaders have been strikingly successful in securing the consistent high quality of teaching and curriculum that is cemented across the school. Pupils of all ages make substantial progress as a result.

Pupils of all abilities are skilfully supported and challenged to do their personal best. Teachers are particularly proficient at judging the degree of challenge for pupils in English and mathematics. Teachers and leaders expertly create an atmosphere, environment and conditions which are highly conducive to successful learning.

Pupils shift from transfixed focus and concentration for some tasks to infectious delight during equally productive but more practical activities. Whatever the situation, pupils' behaviour is typically impeccable. They have a strong voice in the school and benefit from deeply embedded and attentive pastoral care.

Pupils are incredibly well prepared for secondary education by the end of Year 6. The standards they reach at the end of key stage 2 are consistently – and often significantly – above those of other pupils nationally. The school benefits from exceptionally high-quality governance.

Leaders have correctly identified that there is scope to secure even greater consistency of challenge for pupils in subjects other than English and mathematics.

Information about this school

Chilton Primary School converted to an academy on 1 March 2015, since its last full inspection. As a school whose predecessor school was judged to be good overall, it received a short inspection in March 2018.

The school is part of the Viking Academy Trust. This is a small multi-academy trust. Beneath the board of trustees, there is a LAB of governors specifically focused on Chilton Primary.

While retaining overall accountability, the board of trustees delegates many responsibilities and governance functions to the LAB. Several trustees also sit on the LAB. The chief executive officer of the trust is also the executive headteacher.

The school's early years provision consists purely of Reception Year. There is no provision for two-year-olds. The school offers a breakfast club and an after-school club.
