Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Pupils' attainment has improved significantly since the previous inspection when less than half reached the national average in both English and Mathematics by the time they left Year 6. In 2012, 88% of Year 6 pupils attained at least the expected levels in both English and Mathematics which is above average.

Pupils make good progress in their learning because teaching is consistently good, and some is outstanding. Tasks motivate and interest pupils and are generally well matched to their needs. Pupils in the unit make outstanding progress towards their individual behavioural targets.

They make good and sometimes outstanding progress in t...heir academic work. This is because their needs are meticulously assessed and accurately planned for. Pupils behave well and have good attitudes towards their learning.

They feel safe in school. Attendance is improving steadily and the rate of exclusions has fallen significantly since the previous inspection. The school's leaders and governors understand how well the school is doing and what it needs to do to become outstanding.

Teachers' performance is monitored rigorously. Training and support are provided for them in order to meet the school's priorities for improvement. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not enough more able pupils reach the higher levels in writing.

This is because teachers do not always adapt materials to meet their needs. Occasionally, written tasks set in other subjects are too easy for them and do not challenge their thinking sufficiently. Pupils do not always have enough opportunities to practise and apply the skills they learn in information and communication technology (ICT).

Information about this school

The Greenfield E-act Primary Academy is slightly larger than the average-sized primary school. The school incorporates a unit, The Bridge, for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties. Ten children attend this and all have statements of special educational needs.

The school has a higher proportion of pupils supported through school action than most other schools. In addition, the proportion of pupils supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is much higher than the national average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for support under the pupil premium initiative is much higher than average.

The school meets the government's floor standards which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The school became an academy on 1 September 2012 and the posts of executive principal and head of school came into effect at that time. The executive principal and head of school were formerly the headteacher and deputy headteacher of the school.
