Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Since the last inspection the headteacher, supported by other leaders and governors, has been determined to improve the quality of education in the school to 'good', and he has succeeded.

Over the past two years leaders have accurately identified the strengths and weaknesses in teaching. The actions they have taken have improved the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement to 'good'. Governors now provide a good level of challenge to school leaders.

Pupils' personal development, behaviour and welfare are good and are strengths of the school. The effective pastoral support systems ensure pupils are safe and well cared for. Pupils make g...ood progress across school from low starting points on entry to the early years, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics.

By the end of Year 6 the attainment of almost all groups is broadly in line with the national average. Provision in the early years is good. Teachers and teaching assistants keep a careful check on the development of children so that they make good progress.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Some of the subject leaders are less effective than those for English and mathematics. Effective transition between the new two- and three-year-old provision and the Reception class is not well enough established. On occasions, pupils are not challenged sufficiently by the work set for them.

Teachers miss the opportunities to stretch the more-able pupils so they make even better progress.

Information about this school

Hemsby Primary School is a smaller than average-sized one form entry primary school. The large majority of pupils are White British.

There are no pupils who speak an additional language. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability and are supported through a school support plan is above average. The proportion of pupils with a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan is in line with the national average.

A below-average proportion of pupils is supported by the pupil premium which, in this school, provides additional funding for those known to be eligible for free school meals or who are in local authority care. The school runs a breakfast club. In September 2015 the pre-school setting joined Hemsby Primary School.

There is a morning and afternoon session for the two- and three-year-olds. In the Reception class, children attend school all day. The school meets government floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
