Information about this school

Christ the Saviour Church of England Primary School was opened in September 2011, following the amalgamation of St Saviour’s Infants School and Christ Church Junior School. It is larger than the average-sized primary school. In September 2012, the school expanded to include another Reception class. The majority of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds. Few speak English as an additional language. A below average proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium which provides additional funding for children in local authority care and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. The school exceeds the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school is currently undergoing building works as it expands further, and is located on two sites.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Teaching is outstanding and brings the best out of each pupil. It is typified by teachers’ high expectations, demanding activities and adept questioning. Pupils make rapid progress in English and mathematics and, as a result, attainment is well above national averages across the school. The teaching of subject-specific skills in some other subjects is variable, which results in good, rather than outstanding, progress in those areas. Pupils from different groups, including disabled pupils, those with special educational needs and pupils with additional funding, make better than expected progress. Pupils’ behaviour and respect for each other are outstanding. Pupils have very positive attitudes towards school and enjoy learning. Consequently, their attendance is high. Leaders and managers, including governors, act as effective role models and this contributes to a highly cohesive school where staff performance is well supported and developed. Inspirational leadership from the executive headteacher, who is ably supported by the senior leaders and managers and the governing body, ensures that the drive for improvement is continuous. There is a culture of high aspiration and success for all. A rich and stimulating learning experience with an innovative range of topics and themes helps to motivate and inspire the pupils and contributes strongly to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Parents are unanimous in their support for the school and speak warmly about the headteacher and the staff.
