Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Cringle Brook welcomes pupils including those who have experienced significant difficulties. These pupils succeed and are a source of pride to themselves, their parents and staff.

Leadership is determined and uncompromising in ensuring that pupils get the very best preparation for the next steps in their education. Governors constantly take steps to get the provision just right. The curriculum is unique, stimulating and expertly planned.

It ensures that pupils' basic skills are embedded but that their knowledge and understanding of the world is broad and deep. Pupils' spontaneous enjoyment of learning is palpable and they show excitement about what each new day brings. There is a very keen sense of teamwork and everyone involved with the school shows a strong commitment to moving it forward and striving for excellence.

Teaching is adapted to the needs of pupils and lessons are exciting and purposeful. Pupils who may find it difficult to learn are given all the support possible to overcome what is getting in the way. Pupils live up to the school's high expectations and their behaviour is exemplary.

Pupils are encouraged to express their opinions, often beyond their years. They have an excellent understanding of how to keep themselves and each other safe. The many different opportunities for the personal, social and health education of pupils add much to their knowledge, interest and enjoyment, and provide them with lasting memories.

Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school and its leaders. Children in the Reception Year, especially those who are new to education, make great strides in their learning and development. This is because of the effective leadership and excellent teaching.

From very low starting points, pupils make considerable progress and reach expected standards quickly. Not enough pupils are working at greater depth but leaders are addressing this and their actions are beginning to have a clear, sustainable impact. Pupils who are new to English receive fantastic support and intervention and acquire English quickly and confidently.
