This is an outstanding school. Didsbury Road's vision that 'We are happy, caring, confident learners, preparing for our future.' sums up the essence of this outstanding school.

Pupils achieve exceptionally well in both their academic and personal development because : they are provided with an outstanding quality of education. Standards in reading, writing and mathematics are well-above average although pupils' attainments in writing, especially for the most able, have not been quite as high as in reading and mathematics. The outstanding quality of the teaching ensures that a high proportion of pupils make more than expected progress when they join the school.

Information about this school

Didsbury Road is larger than the average-sized primary school The large majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is about half the national average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs who are supported through school action is below average as is the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium funding is significantly lower than that found nationally. The pupil premium is additional funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those who are looked after by the local authority.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' learning and progress. The senior and middle leadership team and the governing body have been restructured since the previous inspection. The school works with a cluster of local schools.
