Information about this school

Frodsham Manor House Primary School is slightly smaller than the average-sized primary school. The vast majority of pupils are White British. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported at school action plus, or with a statement of special educational needs, is similar to that seen in most other schools. The proportion supported at school action is smaller than average. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium funding is below the national average. The pupil premium is additional funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress by the end of Year 6. There is a privately run pre-school provision on site which is subject to a separate inspection at a different time.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Over time, pupils make good progress from their broadly average starting points and usually reach above average standards in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Year 6. In some year groups, the most able pupils do particularly well; the quality of their work, and the standards they reach, are high. Girls’ writing is a particular strength. Most teaching is good. When pupils are challenged to think hard and do their very best, they invariably respond well and succeed. In lessons, pupils are keen to learn and listen carefully. Around the school, they are courteous, polite, respectful and friendly to others. Pupils enjoy school and the many extra activities and visits that take place. There are many events that serve to broaden their experiences and develop their talents. Their level of attendance is higher than that seen in most other schools. Parents, staff and pupils express very positive views about the school. Pupils’ well-being is given a high priority. Pupils report that they feel safe in school and say that instances of bullying or poor behaviour are rare. Since the previous inspection, school leaders and governors have maintained the school’s good performance. In recent times, governors have strengthened their procedures for monitoring the school’s work and this has improved the effectiveness of teaching. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The achievement of boys, particularly in writing, does not match the high standards reached by girls. Systems for checking the quality of teaching and pupils’ progress in science are not rigorous enough. Some of the teachers’ checks on what pupils understand and can do are not sufficiently precise. Consequently, the quality of advice that pupils receive about their learning, and the match of work to their abilities, varies between classes.
