Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress from their starting points. Their progress is outstanding in the Reception Year and is good in Year 1.

The school operates in a warm and caring environment. Very good provision is made to support pupils' strong spiritual development. Teaching is good.

Teachers and teaching assistants know children well. They plan engaging and exciting activities to support their learning. As a result, pupils enjoy coming to school.

Pupils' behaviour is outstanding and they are highly motivated learners. They are very considerate, kind and caring towards each other. Pupils feel safe at school.

Staff use computer...s innovatively to bring learning to life and this supports pupils' good progress. The subjects and topics that pupils learn about meet their needs. There are good opportunities to learn about different cultures.

School leaders have an accurate overview of the school's performance. The new interim principal has settled into her role quickly and has rapidly won the confidence of parents and carers, staff and pupils. The governing body meets its statutory duties.

It has high expectations of leaders, and ensures that resources are well managed. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils' progress in Year 1 is not as strong as in the Reception Year. Teachers do not adapt activities in lessons to challenge pupils as well as they could do.

Teachers do not consistently outline the next steps that pupils need to take in their learning when they mark pupils' books. The school's strategies to improve pupils' attendance have not successfully secured above average attendance. Leaders do not set measurable targets to help them check how well the school is improving each term.

Governors do not check the work of the school for themselves often enough.

Information about this school

This is an academy free school which is part of the Avanti Schools Trust. The school opened in September 2011.

The school promotes a Hindu ethos but pupils are able to attend the school regardless of their faith and/or beliefs. The school is set within the grounds of Evington Hall, on the outskirts of Leicester. Some classrooms, administrative areas, and a sports hall are situated within Evington Hall itself.

New classrooms, and a worship and dining hall, have also been constructed within the grounds. The school is currently smaller than others of the same type but it is expanding rapidly. The school currently admits pupils in Reception and Year 1 classes.

From September 2013 it will also admit pupils in Year 2 classes. The school plans to add a new year group each year, and admit pupils from Reception through to Year 6 by September 2017. Most pupils are from an Asian or Asian British background.

A minority is from a range of different ethnic backgrounds. Almost half of the pupils speak English as an additional language. Fewer pupils than average are supported through the pupil premium (additional government funding to help some pupils, including those known to be eligible for free school meals).

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are supported at school action is below average, as is the proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The principal left the school in April 2013. The school is currently led by an interim principal.
