Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The school inspires pupils to thrive in all aspects of their academic achievement and personal development.

Pupils are treated as individuals and as a result all pupils, including those eligible for pupil premium, achieve well and are extremely well prepared for the next stage in their education. Achievement in English and mathematics is much higher than average, although writing is not yet as strong as reading. Teaching is outstanding.

Teachers and teaching assistants work extremely well together to ensure lessons are exceptionally well planned to meet the needs of all. The pace at which pupils learn is usually rapid and very go...od use is made of measuring pupils' progress and deciding what they need to do next to improve. From an early age, pupils clearly enjoy school and this shows in their eagerness to learn.

They are very respectful to each other and to all the staff and visitors to the school. They are polite, courteous, work hard and take pride in all that they do. Pupils' behaviour is often exemplary both in school and when on visits out of school.

They have very good attitudes to learning and support each other to do their best. They feel very safe in school. Throughout the school there is a supportive and caring ethos.

All staff, members of the governing body, volunteers and visitors to the school together create an exceptional environment. Leadership and management throughout the school are of the highest quality. There are highly effective systems in place to measure the effectiveness of staff and ensure appropriate training is in place to meet the needs of individuals.

This has led to outstanding teaching which underpins pupils' high achievement. The governing body provides exceptional support and challenge for the school. They have a wide range of experience which greatly benefits the school.

The school provides pupils with many opportunities to explore their own interests, particularly within topics. Occasionally, there are missed opportunities to develop pupils' writing skills in subjects other than English.

Information about this school

Clitheroe Pendle is an oversubscribed and larger than average sized primary school.

Almost all pupils are of White British heritage. There is a much lower than average proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds. They are mainly of Asian heritage and Eastern European origin and some of this small group are at an early stage of learning English.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is much lower than that found nationally. The proportion of pupils supported at school action is below average and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is much lower than average. Pupils are mainly taught in mixed-age classes.

There are five classes in the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and five classes in Key Stage 2. There are breakfast- and after-school groups based at Clitheroe Pendle that are not managed by the governing body and are inspected separately. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
