Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The newly-opened academy is performing at an outstanding level because of the dynamic and well-focused leadership provided by the executive headteacher and her senior leaders. The academy has very rapidly achieved its vision of 'creating a haven in which children can flourish'.

There is a culture which encourages the seeking of continual improvement. The academy has exemplary systems for checking teachers' work and providing appropriate training where needed to raise the quality of teaching. The impact of this is now evident in high-quality teaching and achievement.

The academy is very successful in promoting pupils' spiritual, m...oral, social and cultural development, and understanding of British values, through all aspects of its work. Because of this, pupils are very well prepared for life in modern Britain. However, the academy does not celebrate the different backgrounds and cultures of the growing number of pupils new to learning English sufficiently.

There is outstanding provision for the early years through leadership, teaching and resources that have had an excellent impact on children's learning. Children make outstanding progress and are very well prepared for their future schooling in Year 1. Leaders' work to ensure high-quality teaching is evident in pupils' achievement in reading, writing and mathematics.

This is well above that expected for their ages. Teachers are less well prepared for the teaching of pupils at an early stage of learning English. The governing body has a very detailed knowledge of the academy's strengths and of the further development needed as it grows into a full primary school.

Governors check very carefully to ensure that priorities in the excellent development plan are carried out in practice. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding and this has a very positive impact on their learning. They have excellent attitudes towards school, clearly love learning new things and are developing very high aspirations for their future lives.

Leaders and staff are rigorous in ensuring that pupils are kept safe. All parents are very positive about how safe their children are at school and how well they are looked after. The staff have developed a creative and exciting curriculum, taking full account of recent changes to the content of subjects, and the way pupils' progress is assessed and recorded.

Information about this school

Lincoln Carlton Academy opened in September 2013 and moved to its new building in January 2014. It is growing by two classes each year. Currently, the academy has two Reception and two Year 1 classes.

Therefore, it is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The academy is part of the CfBT Multi Academy Trust. The executive headteacher is a National Leader in Education and leads a partnership of three schools.

These are Lincoln Carlton Academy, Mount Street Academy and Benjamin Adlard Primary School. The partnership is led by an executive headteacher. Each academy has its own head of school to oversee its day-to-day running.

The academy is part of the Kyra Teaching School Alliance. This group of schools has a role in sharing good practice and training new teachers. Children attend the early years in the two Reception classes on a full-time basis.

Most pupils are White British. A growing number of pupils are joining the school from Eastern European countries and are learning English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below average.

A below-average proportion of pupils are disadvantaged and supported by the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals. The school hosts a privately run breakfast and after-school club. This is inspected and reported on separately.
