Information about this school

The school is larger than the average-sized primary school. The majority of pupils come from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. The largest groups are White British and Black African. A well above average proportion speak English as an additional language, and a significant number are at an early stage of learning English. The large majority of pupils are supported by the pupil premium. In this school, the additional funding is for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or in the care of the local authority. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The school is part of the local authority’s expansion programme to create more primary school places in the city. Currently, year groups from the Reception Year through to Year 2 have increased to two-form entry. The school will be fully two-form entry by 2017. A much greater than average proportion of pupils join or leave the school during the school year, particularly in Key Stage 1 where the school has experienced most growth.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Children make good progress in Nursery and Reception. Because of low starting points, standards on transfer to Year 1 are just below average. Pupils who have been in Reception classes achieve well at Key Stage 1 and at the end of Year 2 their attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is average. Achievement at Key Stage 2 has improved and is now good. From low starting points, attainment at the end of Year 6 has risen and is now average. Recent improved standards are being sustained. Pupils in school are making good progress and standards continue to rise. Teaching is good and in some year groups it is outstanding, so pupils make good progress as they move from year to year. Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. They enjoy school and feel safe. Pupils show outstanding attitudes towards their school work. Strong and focused leadership has been crucial to the rapid improvement since the school was last inspected. School leaders regularly carry out detailed checks on the quality of teaching and learning. Useful feedback has helped improve teaching. Leaders at all levels make an important contribution to improving the school’s work. Governors are well informed about how well the school is doing. They ask searching questions and set challenging targets for school leaders to promote school improvement. It is not yet an outstanding school because : There is still some teaching that requires improvement. Teachers do not always make sure that more- able pupils are doing their very best or that questions make pupils think things out fully. Pupils are sometimes not confident in starting their work because it has not been explained clearly enough to them.
