Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Strong leadership by the executive headteacher has kept the school on an improving path since its last inspection. The quality of teaching has improved and pupils' progress is now good, particularly in writing and mathematics.

The governing body has quickly established itself. Governors have developed the expertise to challenge school leaders constructively. The federation provides strong support for teachers and leaders, particularly during the period of headteacher change.

The drive and expertise of leaders for English and mathematics have been significant factors in improvements in both subjects. Action taken by leaders has brought gre...ater rigour to the teaching of wider reading skills, such as comprehension. As a result, pupils' progress in reading is improving.

The school provides a strong programme of curriculum enrichment. This broadens the pupils' experiences considerably. Pupils conduct themselves well in lessons and around the school.

They respond quickly to their teachers and are keen to answer questions. Pupils develop a strong moral code and system of values. Pupils feel very safe and know that they can talk to someone if they have concerns.

Children make good progress in the early years, but assessment information is not used consistently well to move children's learning forward quickly in the Reception Year. Phonics teaching has improved, but not all adults have developed the subject expertise to teach skills accurately. The school has not paid sufficient attention to teaching in depth subjects other than English, mathematics and computing.

Expectations of handwriting are not high enough. The writing of some teachers is not a good example for pupils to copy.

Information about this school

The school is below average in size.

The school entered into a hard federation with Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School from June 2015. At this point, a new governing body was put in place. The federation is led by an executive headteacher, who is also a national leader of education.

The school's substantive headteacher left in March 2017. Her replacement is appointed on a temporary basis while a new leadership structure is developed. Almost all pupils are from a wide range of minority ethnic backgrounds, the largest group being of Black African heritages.

Three quarters of pupils speak English as an additional language, which is well above the national average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is below average. Two thirds of pupils are supported by additional government funding.

The proportion of pupils who join or leave the school part-way through their primary education is higher than in the majority of primary schools. Children in the early years provision attend the Nursery and the Reception class full time. The school provides childcare before and after school.

The school meets the government's current floor standards. These set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website.
