Short inspection of Grange Park Infant and Nursery School

Following my visit to the school on 13 March 2019, I write on behalf of Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Education, Children's Services and Skills to report the inspection findings. The visit was the first short inspection carried out since the school was judged to be good in November 2014. This school continues to be good.

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Pupils' achievement in reading and mathematics continues to be a strength. Pupils make good gains from below-average starting points to meet, and often exceed, the national standards at the end of key stage 1.

You have strong... links with local schools that provide wider curriculum opportunities for pupils, such as participation in the current dance festival. These links also enable leaders to develop their knowledge and expertise, working with local colleagues to support school improvement priorities. You describe your staff team as a strength of the school.

Staff know their pupils extremely well and shape their learning accordingly. The school has the equivalent of a whole class of pupils moving in and out each year. Your staff team works hard to help new pupils who arrive throughout the academic year to settle quickly and to make as much progress in their learning as possible.

Leaders closely monitor the learning of all pupils, including new arrivals, and take steps to provide them with appropriate support when needed. For example, the new physical dexterity group in the Nursery is strengthening children's fine motor skills, which in turn is supporting their writing development. Your work with parents and carers is a real strength too.

Parents speak positively about the progress their children make in school. Typical comments from parents include 'very happy with the progress my child has made' and 'my child is more confident'. Parents are also very appreciative of the 'excellent support' and the training provided to them by staff, whom they describe as 'hard-working' and 'friendly'.

Pupils and staff share this enthusiasm for the school and are proud to be members of the Grange Park Infant and Nursery School community. The previous inspection report identified the need for writing to be taught in all classes so that pupils' achievement in writing matched that in reading and mathematics. All pupils now have the opportunity to write regularly and in a wide range of subjects.
