Main findings

This is an outstanding school.

Pupils are provided with an impressive and exciting curriculum which is supported by exceptional teaching and outstanding care, guidance and support. As a result of excellent all-round provision, pupils thrive in every way. This is seen in their exemplary behaviour which is a predominant factor in their good, and frequently outstanding, progress in lessons.

Because this is a highly inclusive school, no pupils are disadvantaged, and all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, make similar rates of progress. The school's engagement with parents and carers is outstanding, and they in turn are extremely positive about the provisio...n, as indicated in one response to the questionnaire: 'I have found Hampton Hill Junior School to be outstanding in the provision of my child's education. The curriculum is exciting, there are projects and trips.

Aspects of the curriculum are linked to focus projects which make learning fun. My child is very happy, enjoying learning and being nurtured to being an independent and responsible child. This is a fabulous school.'

Pupils confirm that they benefit immensely from extremely caring and dedicated relationships with all the staff, telling the inspection team, for example: 'The staff are brilliant … a lot of happy stuff goes on … everyone gets a fair chance.' Enjoyment of their education is reflected in high levels of attendance and punctuality. This combination of a happy and highly supportive environment, together with excellent guidance to improve their learning and extremely positive relationships at all levels within the school, encourages pupils to work hard and reach high levels of attainment, leading to outstanding achievement.

Central to the impressive success of the school is the inspirational leadership of the headteacher and the highly committed energies of teachers and staff throughout the school. They are ably supported by a committed and well-qualified governing body which is fully engaged in shaping the strategic direction of the school. Together, they have knitted together a vibrant community atmosphere, and the school deservedly enjoys its high reputation in the local area.

As a result, an excellent range of partnerships enriches the pupils' educational opportunities. The school's self-evaluation is very accurate, and planning identifies a clear agenda for continued school improvement. For example, community cohesion in the wider national context is not so strong and has been correctly identified as an area for further development.

The maintenance of outstanding outcomes for pupils, together with the determination of leaders and managers to continue to provide an excellent learning environment for the pupils, and the excellent relationship with parents and carers, demonstrates that the school has an outstanding capacity to sustain its currently outstanding performance. The school provides excellent value for money.

Information about the school

This is a larger-than-average junior school.

A very small minority of pupils are known to be eligible for free school meals. The large majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds but around 28% come from minority ethnic heritages. The majority of pupils transfer to the school from the nearby infant school, but an increasing number join the school other than at the normal time of admission.

This includes a small number of pupils at the early stages of speaking English as an additional language. The school runs a breakfast club, and hosts an after-school club which is independently run and, therefore, inspected separately. The school has been awarded Activemark, Artsmark Gold and the Inclusion Quality Mark, and has been designated a National College Leading Sustainable School.
