What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

The school has carefully constructed a curriculum that makes it crystal clear what knowledge pupils need to know and remember from the moment they start in the Reception Year to the end of Year 6. The curriculum is highly ambitious and it enables pupils to shine in every subject.

Pupils develop a rich body of knowledge across a broad range of subjects. They build strong connections between different topics and concepts. Pupils are enthused by their learning.

They appreciate the high-quality activities that their teachers prepare for them. For example, the school provides a vast array of enrichment opportunities to enhance the learning experiences of every child. For instance, pupils go on a local hike to develop their map reading and orientation skills.

Everything the school does is carefully designed and expertly thought through.

Curriculum leaders have considerable subject expertise. They make effective use of up-to-date research to underpin their curriculum thinking.

Leaders provide teachers with resources of exceptional quality to support the delivery of the curriculum. They make sure that staff benefit from high-quality training. For example, staff receive frequent training on how best to identify and meet the needs of pupils with SEND.

This means that pupils with SEND receive exceptionally well-tailored support. These pupils, and those pupils who are disadvantaged, flourish as a result.

Leaders check that staff deliver the curriculum to the highest standard.

They make sure that teachers introduce new learning at exactly the right time. Teachers do this skilfully. They expertly check what pupils know and remember from the curriculum.

Teachers take great care to ensure that pupils systematically build up their knowledge over time. Pupils talked about what they know already and their new learning with confidence.

The school recognises the fundamental importance of teaching pupils to read.

The school ensures that staff deliver the phonics curriculum with fidelity. Staff make sure that the books that pupils read are carefully matched to the sounds that they know. This helps pupils to gain the secure phonics knowledge that they need to be successful readers.

Pupils who fall behind are given prompt help by highly trained staff. This ensures that these pupils catch up quickly.

Staff act as positive role models in developing a love of reading in pupils.

Pupils are reading advocates. They speak with sheer joy about their favourite books and authors. Pupils particularly enjoy the vast collection of books on offer to them.

Over time, pupils develop into confident and highly competent readers. This helps them to access the full curriculum and contributes to their strong achievement across all subjects.

Pupils embrace the various leadership responsibilities on offer to them.

For example, the pupil house captains decide on the local, national or international charities that they wish to support. Older pupils successfully act as role models to the youngest children, helping them to make the most of their learning. Older pupils promote positive play and help younger pupils during dinnertime.

Pupils make a highly tangible contribution to the life of the school, and the wider community, through these leadership roles.

The school prepares pupils well for life beyond Delamere. Pupils have a thorough understanding of fundamental British values.

For example, they can debate the laws and rules of the country. Pupils are tolerant, respectful and they celebrate the diversity that exists within our society. Through visits into school from wider faith leaders, pupils develop a strong sense of culture and other religions.

Pupils' well-being, and mental and physical health, are promoted exceptionally well by the school.

Leaders are highly ambitious for all pupils, staff and for the community that they serve. Staff, including those new to teaching, are highly positive about the realistic and constructive way that leaders support their well-being and workload.

Staff appreciate being involved in the co-construction of policies. They value the clear expectations from leaders as to when meetings and training will take place. Staff feel that their work-life balance is appropriately considered.

Members of the local governing body and the trust know Delamere extremely well. They fulfil their statutory duties and roles with expertise. The strong partnership between those with oversight of the school is highly effective.

There is a drive and determination that nothing less than perfection will do. This vision helps pupils to achieve academic excellence.
