Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders have an accurate understanding of the school's strengths and weaknesses. Consequently, they have taken effective action to bring about improvement. Leaders and governors are highly ambitious for the pupils.

As a result, teaching, learning and pupils' achievement are good. Leaders give effective direction to improve teaching and raise achievement. There are strong systems in place to check pupils' progress.

However, governors do not always undertake the most stringent monitoring to evaluate the effectiveness of leaders' actions. Leaders are developing a broad curriculum with an extensive range of experiences. Pupils deepen their kn...owledge, skills and understanding across a wide range of subjects.

Leaders are effectively tackling weaknesses in mathematics. However, these improvements have yet to be fully imbedded to ensure consistently good progress for all pupils in mathematics. Children make a successful start in the early years.

However, aspects of mathematics remain an area for development. The teaching of phonics in key stage 1 is strong. However, the teaching of spelling through the school is variable.

This means that pupils' written work sometimes suffers as a result. Current pupils are making good progress in response to effective teaching. However, some most-able pupils have yet to reach the higher standards of which they are capable, particularly in mathematics.

Disadvantaged pupils and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) receive effective support. As a result, they achieve well both academically and socially. Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength of the school.

Pupils have positive attitudes, show high levels of respect and behave well. Kea Community Primary School is an extremely caring and highly inclusive school. Parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the care provided by the school.

Pupils' well-being and personal growth are given high priority. Strong pastoral support across the school secures pupils' welfare and keeps them safe.
