Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils make rapid progress across the school and leave with attainment that is well above the national average.

Their achievement is outstanding and they are very well-prepared for the next stage in their education. The quality of teaching is outstanding because teachers use their knowledge of pupils well to plan work that consistently challenges them. Teachers have high expectations of pupils.

The achievement of more-able pupils is a particular strength with an increasing proportion achieving the higher levels. Pupils enjoy learning a wide range of skills across many subjects, developing a thirst for knowledge and understanding.... This is enhanced by the many extra-curricular activities the school offers them.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. The behaviour of pupils is exemplary, both in classrooms and around the school. Pupils are polite and courteous.

Any issues are promptly dealt with and resolved and so pupils feel safe. Senior leaders and managers have been determined to make the school as good as it can possibly be and their commitment is shared by both staff and the governing body. The governing body fulfils its role well.

Governors have a clear understanding of the achievement of pupils and both support and rigorously challenge the school to continue improving. There are excellent links with other schools in the area, including 'The Four Oaks Learning Trust' that supports the monitoring and development of teaching in the school. Relationships with parents are strong.

All who have recorded their opinions on 'Parent View' would recommend the school to other parents.

Information about this school

Four Oaks Primary is much larger than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium, which is extra government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, in local authority care or from service families, is well below average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported by school action is well below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also well below average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is broadly average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. A nursery, playgroup and before- and after-school provision operate on the same site. All these are managed externally and are subject to separate inspection.
