Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Children make good progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage thanks to well organised provision. From Years 1 to 6, pupils achieve well and make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

The pupils with a special need or disability make good progress as the adults who support them are well trained. Teaching is good with some outstanding teaching observed during the inspection. Teaching assistants are a real strength of the school as they are well prepared to deliver high-quality provision to pupils.

The new acting headteacher ensures that the spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of pupils' development are very strong.... The new senior leadership team are effective. They have generated enthusiasm and commitment and ensure staff know the priority areas needed to make further improvements.

Behaviour is good as pupils are polite, well behaved and courteous. They have positive attitudes and are keen to engage with adults. Cooperation is very good.

Safety is a huge strength of the school as there are thorough systems in place to safeguard children. The school is vigilant about procedures. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The most-able pupils do not make as much progress as they could in reading and mathematics.

Teachers do not always ensure pupils respond to their marking so that they improve their work even further.

Information about this school

Hill View Primary School is a smaller than averaged-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils who are supported by the pupil premium is lower than the national average.

(The pupil premium is additional government funding provided for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority.) The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is higher than the national average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is in line with the national average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress by the end of Year 6. The school hosts many community activities throughout the year for pupils and parents in the local community. The former headteacher retired in April 2014.

There is now an advertisement on the website for a new headteacher. The assistant headteacher and the acting headteacher still have teaching commitments in Years 2 and 6 and they continue to lead and manage the school. A pre-school playgroup and breakfast club are offered on the school site by independent providers; these provisions were inspected separately and their reports can be found on the Ofsted website.
