Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Children make good progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage. From Years 1 to 6, pupils, including the most able and those who speak English as an additional language, achieve well and make good progress in reading and mathematics. Teaching is typically good and has improved since the last inspection.

Some teaching is outstanding. Pupils enjoy their lessons, which provide very well for their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils' behaviour is good.

They are polite and friendly, enjoy school and feel safe. The headteacher is resolutely focused on improving the school and ensuring that all pupils achieve potential. She has been well supported since the last inspection by a strengthened and able leadership team and an effective, knowledgeable governing body.

As a result, teaching is improving and standards are rising. Strong relationships exist with most parents, who value their involvement in the education of their children and the life of the school. It is not yet an outstanding school because : There is not enough outstanding teaching to drive pupils' progress even faster so that their achievement is outstanding.

Work is occasionally not sufficiently challenging and pupils are not always given enough opportunities to improve their work and extend their skills, particularly in writing. A minority of pupils in Key Stage 2 continue to struggle when using letter sounds to help them read and write. Attendance is improving, but is only just average.

The school recognises that even closer work with parents and further strategies are needed to continue to improve attendance and reduce the number of persistent absentees.

Information about this school

Langley Green Primary is a larger than average-sized primary school. The Early Years Foundation Stage includes a Nursery and two single-age Reception classes.

Pupils are taught in single age groups in Year 1 and Year 2, and in mixed-age classes through the rest of the school. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is well above the national average, as is the proportion who speaks English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, those in local authority care and other groups, is below average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are supported through school action is just above the national average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below the national average. The school met the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress, in 2013 overall.
