Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Pupils make rapid progress and achieve exceptionally well in reading, writing and mathematics with outcomes high compared with national averages. Most teaching is outstanding and none less than good. Teachers have high expectations of pupils and plan interesting work and inspirational activities which help pupils to think for themselves.

While steps have already been taken to improve further the teaching of letters and sounds (phonics), teaching is not yet consistently outstanding in this aspect of English. Highly skilled teaching assistants work alongside teachers to provide pupils with very effective personalised and small grou...p support. The schools' creative curriculum and inspiring themes provide an excellent range of opportunities for pupils to excel in a variety of subjects.

Children make an excellent start in the Nursery and Reception classes, quickly becoming confident learners. They benefit from outstanding teaching in classrooms and in the inspiring outside area. Pupils' outstanding behaviour is supported by excellent provision for their spiritual, moral social and cultural development.

Pupils feel extremely safe in school and get on very well together. Parents think highly about the school and leaders use very effective ways to involve parents in their children's learning, for example, by using social media. The executive headteacher and head of school are inspirational leaders who lead by example.

They have a highly positive impact on the quality of teaching and levels of pupils' achievement at the school. The governing body provides very effective support and challenge to the school.

Information about this school

This Infant and Nursery school converted to become an academy on 1 October 2011.

When its predecessor school, Mount Street Infant and Nursery School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding. It is part of a wider partnership of schools supported by the CfBT Education Trust. The executive headteacher leads both this school and the Lincoln Carlton Academy.

There is an additional head of school. The school is the lead school in the Kyra Teaching School Alliance. The school is larger than the average-sized primary school.

There are three classes in each year group and part-time Nursery provision every morning and afternoon. Almost all pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average.

The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is below average. The pupil premium is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after by the local authority and other groups.
