Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and senior leaders have good support from the governing body and have been very effective in driving improvements forward since the last inspection.

As a result teaching and pupils' achievement have greatly improved. The school is continuing to improve. Leaders are successfully promoting a positive school ethos with a strong focus on the achievement of all groups, especially pupils who have special educational needs or disability and disadvantaged pupils.

Leaders promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, including British values, very effectively. Teaching assistants work closely with teachers to p...rovide good support for learning. Pupils' behaviour throughout the school is good.

Pupils enjoy coming to school, which is reflected in their above-average attendance. Teaching has moved from requiring improvement to good. Teachers make good use of assessment to match tasks to pupils' abilities.

They plan interesting activities which motivate pupils. Teachers use questioning well to develop pupils' understanding. The school makes very good provision for pupils' welfare, especially for those in the nurture groups who are most vulnerable.

As a result, pupils build their confidence in learning and feel safe. Pupils make good progress as they move through the school in a range of subjects, including reading, writing and mathematics. Strong leadership of the early years has led to good improvement in teaching and the formation of strong links with parents.

This promotes children's learning and well-being effectively so that children are making good progress. It is not yet an outstanding school because : A few weaknesses remain in teaching and not enough is outstanding. Too few pupils are making more than expected progress across a range of subjects.

Teachers do not provide enough guidance to develop pupils' reasoning skills in mathematics. Subject leaders have not developed systems for measuring the progress of pupils in non-core subjects. Subject leaders are not thorough enough when they check pupils' books to determine the impact of teaching on the progress pupils are making.

Information about this school

East Tilbury Primary School and Nursery is much larger than the average-sized primary school. Since the last inspection, East Tilbury Junior School has amalgamated with East Tilbury Infant School to form East Tilbury Primary School and Nursery. This resulted in a large turnover of staff.

Prior to the amalgamation, both of these schools were judged to require improvement. The school received two monitoring visits by Ofsted to determine the progress it was making in meeting its areas for improvement and moving towards a good school. The school is part of St Clere's Co-operative Academy Trust.

The early years is made up of four Reception classes catering for 91 children, all of whom attend full-time. Currently there are no children in the Nursery. Most pupils are White British and the proportion who speak English as an additional language is well below that found in most schools.

The school has established two nurture groups for its most-vulnerable pupils. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is similar to that in most schools. The pupil premium is the additional funding provided by the government to support pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and children looked after.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is broadly average, although the proportion of those with a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan is higher than in most schools. The school meets the government's floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6. There have been no other significant changes since the last inspection.
