Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school 'Christ The King is more than a school, it's a family' one parent commented, summing up the views of the vast majority, recorded online, in letters and in discussion with inspectors. All say their children are happy, kept safe and well looked after.

The headteacher's inspirational leadership, driven by the highest aspirations, has given leaders, governors and staff a vigorous sense of purpose, and motivated pupils to work even harder. Consequently, achievement is rising and the quality of teaching and learning has improved. Pupils achieve well, including those who have special educational needs or disability and those who are disadvantaged.
...r/>At the end of Year 6 most pupils will reach age-related expectations in reading, writing and mathematics and many will exceed these. The rich curriculum and excellent provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are strengths of the school. Pupils acquire traditional British values and become polite, mature and thoughtful individuals, who respect other ways of life and religions.

Good teaching provides imaginative experiences and activities that capture pupils' enthusiasm for learning so that they flourish in this vibrant learning community. The early years provision gives children a good, secure start to their learning. Behaviour is outstanding.

This can be seen in lessons where pupils show resilience and willingness to do their best. Pupils say they feel safe in school and bullying does not happen. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is improving rapidly and securely but does not yet result in outstanding achievement.

Some leadership roles are new and have yet to show their full impact.

Information about this school

The school is a little smaller than most primary schools. Most pupils are of White British heritage, and the proportion who speak English as their second language is well below the national average.

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is just above the national average. Pupil premium is additional government funding to support those known to be eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs or disability is below the national average.

The school met the government's floor standards in 2015. These are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6. The new headteacher took up permanent post in December 2015 and there were two acting assistant headteachers at the time of the current inspection.
