Information about this school

Floreat Wandsworth is smaller than the average primary school. The school is part of the Floreat Education Academies Trust, a multi-academy trust. Governance is provided by the board of trustees and by the local advisory committee. The school opened with Nursery and Reception classes in September 2015 in purpose-built premises. The school is growing year by year. It currently has pupils from Nursery to Year 2. It will become a two-form entry primary school, catering for pupils from Nursery to Year 6. The headteacher has been in post since the school opened. The proportion of pupils supported by pupil premium funding is much lower than average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is broadly average. The breakfast club and after-school care provision are provided by an external agency, and are inspected separately.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and governors have made sure that this new school has got off to a good start. It is a happy, welcoming community. Pupils’ excellent conduct contributes to their good outcomes. Leaders provide clear leadership and are strongly backed by staff. All share the school’s code of values and impart these consistently to the pupils. Leaders engage with parents and carers successfully. There is a strong sense of community. Leaders make sure that there is a real partnership between school and home. This helps parents to support their children’s learning. Pupils’ personal development is outstanding. The school’s strong and sustained focus on building pupils’ character ensures that they are articulate, confident and resilient. They are kind to others and respect those of all backgrounds. Leaders and staff look after pupils exceptionally well. The early years provision is extremely strong. The provision is expertly led with a sharp focus on improvement. Well-chosen activities and resources stimulate children’s thinking and help them to find things out for themselves. Children are very well prepared for Year 1. In key stage 1, adults know the pupils well. The teaching of reading, writing and mathematics is typically strong. Adults set tasks that are well matched to pupils’ needs. Leaders and governors work together effectively to ensure that pupils in key stage 1 make good gains in their learning, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics. This includes disadvantaged pupils, the most able and those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. Pupils’ attainment in these subjects is high. Leaders and governors make sure that the curriculum is varied and covers a wide range of subjects. Pupils’ learning is enriched with stimulating clubs and extra-curricular activities. Leaders have designed an ambitious curriculum around the knowledge they expect pupils to acquire. However, leaders have not ensured that teaching in science, history and geography is as demanding as in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils’ outcomes across the curriculum are not typically as strong as in English and mathematics.
