Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Fishergate lives up to its motto 'Achieving great things together' in everything it does.

The exceptional leadership by the headteacher and staff team has created a climate of high expectations, a love of learning and an insistence on the very best for pupils. Governors are committed and knowledgeable. They support and challenge leaders effectively and make a valuable contribution to the development of the school.

Outcomes for all pupils at the end of key stage 2 are good in reading, writing and mathematics enabling pupils to leave school well prepared for their next stage of learning. The precise tracking of pupils' progress in reading, ...writing and mathematics means leaders and staff have a detailed understanding of how well pupils are doing and what next steps pupils should take. This is not as clear in some foundation subjects.

In key stage 1, outcomes in writing are not as strong as they are in the early years or at key stage 2. This is especially true for those who struggle with their writing. Pupils' personal development, welfare and behaviour are outstanding.

Pupils conduct themselves extremely well around school. Their attitudes to learning in lessons are very positive and many play an important part in supporting their own learning and the learning of others. Leaders are diligent in carrying out their duties for safeguarding.

As a result, pupils say that they feel safe in school. Their welfare needs are very well met. The provision for early years is outstanding.

High-quality leadership and teaching create a stimulating learning environment and ensure that children have the best possible start to school life. As a result, they flourish. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural education is outstanding.

Pupils have a wide range of opportunities both in the curriculum and in the community to practise these skills. They demonstrate the respect and care of each other saying that it's alright to be different.
