Key Findings

This is an outstanding school. It was judged to be good with some outstanding features at the time of the last inspection and has continued to go from strength to strength since then. Parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive in their views with one typical comment noting that, 'We are fortunate to have such a fantastic local school.'

Outstanding teaching over time, based firmly on the high expectation that all pupils will be supported and challenged to do their very best, means that all groups, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, make excellent progress across the school. As a result, pupils' attainment in English and mathematics has improved year on year and is c...onsistently well above average at the end of Key Stage 2. Imaginative curriculum planning, particularly for outdoor learning, means that learning is purposeful, active and fun.

Pupils enjoy school and this is clearly demonstrated by their high attendance and exemplary behaviour. Pupils' conduct in lessons and around the school is outstanding. They willingly take on responsibilities to assist the smooth running of the school and display caring, courteous and considerate attitudes towards others.

The precise and detailed tracking of pupils' progress is clearly linked to individual targets for both pupils and teachers and informs school development priorities. In this way, assessment procedures are highly effective in driving school improvement. However, the approach to marking pupils' work varies between classes and this means that written feedback does not always link with pupils' targets or identify the next steps in learning.

Strong and clear-sighted leadership over time, and an ambitious well-informed vision for school improvement, has led to considerable improvements in the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement. Leaders monitor the quality of teaching rigorously and manage the performance of staff to great effect. Pupils are provided with superb opportunities for personal and academic growth.

As a result, they are exceptionally well prepared for the next stage of their education when they leave St. Leonard's.
