Moor Green Primary Academy continues to be an outstanding school.

What is it like to attend this school?

Pupils relish coming to this happy, vibrant school and taking part in the exciting lessons that teachers provide. They feel safe and enjoy positive relationships in this warm, caring school family.

The moment you step over the threshold at Moor Green you know this is a place that is all about learning.

This is a school with enormous ambition and high expectations. Pupils achieve very well across the broad curriculum on offer. They become wonderful writers, masterful mathematicians and accomplished artists.

Throughout the curriculum, pupils are motivated to achi...eve because teachers make learning matter. They ensure lessons are engaging, meaningful and accessible to all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

Pupils' behaviour is exemplary.

In lessons, they display highly positive attitudes by always being on task and giving their all. There is a palpable buzz in classes as pupils happily discuss their learning. At playtimes, they play together harmoniously, making great use of the exciting activities the school provides.

Pupils attend school regularly and arrive on time. Attendance has improved significantly since the last inspection. This is because of a relentless drive to support parents and carers in bringing their children to school every day.

What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

The ambition behind the curriculum is extremely high. The school has carefully thought about what content is most important and how and when to teach it. Put simply, teachers teach the right things, at the right times, in the right ways.

In art and design, for example, pupils learn the techniques and skills they will need through the careful study of artists from around the world. Meaningful lessons give them the knowledge and skills they need to become skilful artists.

In lessons, teachers are highly skilled at presenting subject matter clearly and at adapting lessons for pupils with SEND.

Staff embody the school's high expectations by modelling writing, mathematical calculations and art techniques with exemplary precision. Pupils' books become excellent records of their achievement and showcase their positive attitudes to learning.

The school has a long-established approach to teaching phonics and is constantly improving it.

Staff are experts at teaching phonics. They track meticulously what pupils know so they can match the books pupils read exactly to their needs. Pupils develop quickly the knowledge and skills they need to become fluent readers.

Throughout school, high-quality books are everywhere. Pupils are immersed in a world of literature. An experienced librarian is always on hand to help pupils choose books that they will love and be inspired by.

In the early years, children get off to a positive start to their education. They make the most of the activities adults provide. Whether it is developing their physical skills in the outdoor space or perfecting their number knowledge in the classroom, adults focus on encouraging children's communication.

Children become confident communicators, always ready to express their thoughts, ideas and opinions.

In the early years and across the school, adults are skilled at responding to pupils' needs. They identify quickly if pupils need additional help and provide it.

Well-established and responsive processes for supporting pupils with SEND are in place. The school supports pupils with SEND exceptionally well and provides the help they need to achieve well.

An extensive range of wider opportunities contribute effectively to pupils' wider development.

Regular trips and visitors enrich the curriculum. Staff use the on-site farm and forest school effectively in order to provide pupils with a deeper understanding of their world. The school makes an '11 before 11' promise.

This is an exciting offer of 11 activities for all pupils. These are carefully curated and provide valuable, memorable experiences. Pupils all get to be a 'caring campaigner' and to 'perfect a pitch' to a baker who sells their cake design at a local high street shop.

The budding entrepreneurs then donate their profits to the Parent Teachers Association to benefit all pupils.

This is a school that does not stand still or rest on its laurels. There is an infectious drive for continual improvement shared by staff, leaders at all levels and across the trust.

Staff benefit from being part of a large trust. There are numerous opportunities for staff to receive training and this is something they appreciate. Leaders and those responsible for governance are considerate of staff well-being and workload.

Staff are very grateful for this and are, quite understandably, enormously proud to work at Moor Green Primary Academy.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.


When we have judged a school to be outstanding, we will then normally go into the school about once every four years to confirm that the school remains outstanding.

This is called an ungraded inspection, and it is carried out under section 8 of the Education Act 2005. We do not give graded judgements on an ungraded inspection. However, if we find evidence that a school would now receive a higher or lower grade, then the next inspection will be a graded inspection, which is carried out under section 5 of the Act.

Usually this is within one to two years of the date of the ungraded inspection. If we have serious concerns about safeguarding, behaviour or the quality of education, we will deem the ungraded inspection a graded inspection immediately.

This is the first ungraded inspection since we judged the school to be outstanding in January 2019.
