Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Improvement since the previous inspection has been exceptional. Hugh Myddelton Primary is now a place where teaching is excellent and pupils make astonishingly strong progress from their starting points. The headteacher is an inspirational leader.

Her outstanding leadership has driven forward remarkable changes that are fully embedded throughout the school. Parents, pupils and staff all say that the school is now an amazing place. The deputy headteachers and other leaders are extremely effective at what they do.

Together with the headteacher, they have improved the quality of teaching in every year group. Teachers and teaching ass...istants are skilled and talented members of staff who ensure that all pupils make excellent progress, especially in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils are exceptionally well prepared for each stage in their education.

For the last two years, the attainment and progress of pupils at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 were well above the national average. Disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are exceptionally well supported. These pupils make the same excellent progress as other pupils throughout the school.

The work of governors complements the leadership of the headteacher and senior staff. Governors know the school very well and make excellent use of their visits to the school to hold leaders to account for the quality of teaching and pupils' outcomes. Pupils' behaviour is impeccable.

Staff are excellent role models for behaviour. In lessons and around the school, pupils display extremely positive attitudes to learning. The school's work to help pupils debate and discuss topics is very strong.

Leaders provide excellent opportunities for pupils to speak, listen and share their ideas. The promotion of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is exceptional. With outstanding leadership, excellent teaching and an exciting curriculum, it is no surprise that parents and pupils are so proud of their school.

Pupils' attendance has improved and is now above the national average. Children make excellent progress in the early years. They have great fun and develop strong skills across all areas of learning in readiness for Year 1.

Leaders acknowledge that, although improving, the outdoor environment in the Nursery is not as effective as in Reception, particularly in supporting children's physical development.
