Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher has ensured that there has been a positive response to the areas for improvement left at the most recent monitoring inspection. Leaders have put systems in place to manage pupils' absence effectively.

As a result, pupils' overall attendance has improved and the proportion of pupils regularly absent from school has reduced considerably. Governors are skilled professionals, who are ambitious for the school's future. They use their expertise to support and challenge leaders.

Although governors' role in monitoring is established, the mechanisms used to report their findings are inconsistent. Teachers plan in detail. For the part, lessons are highly structured so that pupils make good progress.

Occasionally, activities are not demanding enough, particularly for the most able pupils. Pupils receive a range of enrichment activities, which supplement an effective curriculum. This is supported by detailed subject-specific progression documents.

However, the quality of these documents varies between subjects, as does that which relates to pupils' personal and social development. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress. This is because their needs are identified accurately and they receive appropriate levels of support.

Pupils take great pride in their work. They behave exceptionally well and are respectful of others. Pupils' movement around the school is calm and orderly, and their attitudes to learning are extremely positive.

Parents and carers are overwhelmingly supportive of the school. They greatly appreciate the approachability of staff and value the many and varied activities available for their children. Those parents who spoke to inspectors expressed how happy and safe they felt that their children were.

Pupils' outcomes overall are good, and the proportion of pupils achieving at the expected standard is consistently above the national average. There is some variability in the proportion of pupils attaining at the higher standard. Children in the early years make good progress.

However, the quality of staff interactions when children access free-choice play activities varies.

Information about this school

Clavering is larger than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is slightly below the national average, as is the proportion of pupils with SEND, including those that require an education, health and care plan.

Most pupils are of White British heritage. The school received a monitoring inspection in November 2018. At that time, inspectors identified some priorities for improvement which the school was advised to address.
