Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school County Bridge Primary is an improving school.

The headteacher, leaders and staff are passionate about providing pupils with an excellent education. As a result, the quality of teaching, the early years provision and pupils' achievement have improved since the previous inspection. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good across the school.

Teachers and other adults share the leaders' ambition for pupils to 'develop lively and enquiring minds'. As a result, pupils do well across a range of subjects, particularly in mathematics. A large majority of pupils make good progress from their respective starting points.

This... is because leaders and staff focus on the progress of all, including disadvantaged pupils, those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities and the most able pupils. Pupils' behaviour is good. Pupils work hard in lessons and demonstrate positive attitudes to their learning.

Pupils are polite, cooperative and behave well around the school. The school's arrangements to make sure pupils are safe and secure and know how to stay safe are good. As a result, pupils feel safe at school.

Children who attend the Nursery and Reception classes benefit from a welcoming learning environment and effective teaching. Children make good progress and teachers prepare them well for learning in Year 1. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good.

Staff prepare pupils well for life in modern Britain. Pupils demonstrate respect for other people's faiths, beliefs and values. They understand the difference between right and wrong and most of the pupils respect the school's rules and expectations.

Governors know the school well. They have a clear understanding of the school's strengths and areas for improvement. They have a wide range of knowledge and expertise that make them effective in supporting and holding leaders to account.

A minority of recently appointed middle leaders and staff are still adjusting to the school's practices and high expectations. As a consequence, some of the actions leaders have taken to improve teaching, learning and assessment and some aspects of the early years provision have yet to show sufficient impact. A small minority of pupils do not make the progress expected of them in reading.
