Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, together with governors and other leaders in school, has established a clear and ambitious vision of excellence in all areas of school life.

As a result, pupils thrive in Longwood Primary School. Pupils make good progress across the school in reading, writing and mathematics due to teaching that is now consistently good. By the time they leave in Year 6, they are well prepared for their next stage of education.

Pupils are well-behaved, polite and get on well with each other. They have a very good understanding of British values of tolerance and respect and demonstrate this through the consideration they show for each othe...r. Pupils feel extremely safe in school.

This is a result of the robust measures that school leaders have put in place to ensure pupils' safety and well-being and to support their emotional well-being. Children settle quickly and happily when they first start at school. This is due to strong and effective leadership of the early years and teaching that is well-matched to children's needs.

As a result, they make good progress across all areas of learning. The teaching of phonics (the sounds that letters make) is highly effective. As a result, pupils make good progress in reading and develop a love of books that is sustained across the school.

Disadvantaged pupils make the same good progress as their classmates. This is due to the high expectations that teachers have of these pupils and the carefully planned support that matches each individual pupil's needs. Parents are now highly supportive of the school.

They recognise and appreciate the improvements that have taken place within the school and the positive impact that these have had for their children. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers do not ensure that the tasks for the most-able pupils in writing are sufficiently challenging. The presentation of pupils' written and mathematical work is too often untidy.

A small minority of pupils do not attend school regularly.
