Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils are making outstanding progress as they travel through the school. Progress is rapid and has been sustained over the last three years.

Attainment at Key Stage 1 over the last five years has been significantly above average. By the end of Key Stage 2, attainment is significantly above the average in English and mathematics, although not always at an equally high standard in other subjects The relationships are excellent and this supports pupils' very effective learning. The learning is often exciting and provides relevant and worthwhile experiences for all pupils.

Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs are... exceptionally well supported and therefore make excellent progress. Pupils supported by the pupil premium make the same outstanding progress as others in the school. Work they are set is very well planned to get the best out of pupils and progress is rapid and sustained.

The teaching assistants are highly trained and make a huge impact on pupils' learning in reading, writing and mathematics. Rigorous assessment, and the tracking of the pupils' progress and how well the school is doing provide sharply focused improvement plans for English and mathematics. Attendance is well-above average and has been for some considerable time.

Excellent behaviour and safety contribute to outstanding outcomes. Pupils' attitudes are exemplary. Improvement in the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement has been rapid.

Leaders have rightly recognised the areas for further improvement. However, inconsistencies in the opportunities for pupils to respond to teachers' marking remain. The headteacher is the driving force in this very popular school.

She ensures a very high standard of education, shows a relentless drive with pupils' progress and ensures that spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of learning permeate throughout the whole school. The very able senior leadership team, new deputy headteacher and middle leaders have an excellent overview of pupils' progress and attainment. The governors are relentless in ensuring that all pupils make as much progress as possible in this very caring and supportive school.

Information about this school

Lunt's Heath Primary School is a larger than average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils who are supported by pupil premium funding is below the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding provided for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is lower than the average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is lower than average. Most pupils are of White British heritage.

The school meets the government's current floor standards that set out the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics. There have been some staff changes in the last 12 months due to retirement and the school now has four members of staff at the start of their career. The school runs many after-school clubs, which are managed by the governing body.
