Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Pupils' achievement is excellent. All groups of pupils make outstanding progress in reading, writing, mathematics and information and communication technology (ICT). From low starting points pupils reach at least average, and often above average, standards.

Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make exceptional progress. Teachers and teaching assistants are skilled in providing varied, challenging, interesting lessons. As a result pupils concentrate hard and enjoy problem-solving, writing and reading.

There are often special days such as Egyptian day or World Book day during which pupils learn in n...ew and exciting ways. Behaviour is excellent around the school. Pupils are friendly, respectful and interested in visitors.

Their good manners are impressive. In class they work hard and listen. Sometimes, however, not all pupils respond to teachers' marking that asks them to do corrections or improve their written work.

Pupils' health and well-being is very well promoted through numerous sporting and physical fitness activities. Pupils' spiritual, moral social and cultural development is excellent. The high expectations of the leadership pervade the school.

Pupils, staff, senior leaders and governors all have a voice in deciding on school improvement. The school has been led extremely well for several years and recent changes in leadership have been accomplished seamlessly.

Information about this school

Hindsford is smaller than the average-sized primary school.

Almost all pupils come from White British backgrounds and only a very few speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is well above average and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is high, over twice the national average. A high proportion of pupils is known to be eligible for the pupil premium.

This is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and children that are looked after. The school meets the government's current floor standards which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. Since the previous inspection the headteacher has left; the assistant headteacher managed the school as acting headteacher in 2012-13 and a new headteacher was appointed in September 2013.
