What is it like to attend this school?

Newburn Manor Primary School is a happy, caring and supportive place to be.

Pupils value the strong relationships that they have with staff. Pupils enjoy coming to school and attend regularly. Parents speak highly of the school.

They describe the school as being a place where their children can thrive and flourish.

Leaders and staff are ambitious for all pupils, including pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Staff provide a wide range of rich experiences for pupils.

They benefit from many educational visits, clubs and residentials. For example, pupils enjoy taking part in the forest school activities including hill walkin...g, rope adventure and creating dens for animals.

The way pupils behave is to be admired.

They are respectful, polite and considerate. Classrooms are calm. Pupils can learn without being disturbed by others.

From the youngest children upwards, pupils take turns, listen to each other and know how to discuss and debate ideas. Pupils are articulate and confidently express their opinions.

Pupils understand that there can be different types of bullying.

They say it does not happen in school but that adults would address it quickly if it did. Pupils feel safe. This is because they know that staff always have time to listen to them.

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

Leaders have designed the curriculum well. The curriculum is broad and ambitious. It meets the needs of all pupils, including pupils with SEND.

Teachers help pupils recall and practise their learning. For example, in geography teachers use a 'question and answer' session to help pupils recall their knowledge about rivers.

Leaders have identified the knowledge and skills that pupils should learn and remember over time.

Teachers help pupils to build their knowledge in a clear sequence. As a result, pupils make good progress. For example, in art pupils learn how repeated printed patterns on material are used by different fashion designers and why.

They then extend their knowledge by learning how to make repeated designs using colours, shapes and initials. Pupils are then able to create a design for their own material. However, in some subjects pupils do not build their knowledge in this step-by-step way.

This is because leaders have not identified the sequence in which subject knowledge should be taught.

Pupils enjoy and are eager to share their reading experiences. They have favourite books and look forward to having time to read in school.

Teachers begin phonics teaching as soon as children join Reception. They learn new sounds each day and keep practising the ones that they already know. This helps them learn how to read more and more words.

Extra help is provided to make sure that all pupils can keep up with their reading.The early years leader has developed a welcoming and nurturing environment for children as they join the school. Staff extend children's vocabulary skilfully.

They build positive relationships quickly with children and parents.

Pupils are very enthusiastic about their learning and enjoy being challenged. For example, in Year 6, pupils answer multistage questions and select the best method for calculation using multiplication and division.

In subjects such as geography, maths and early reading, teachers use feedback to help pupils to understand how and why they are making progress. However, teacher feedback is not used consistently across all subjects. As a result, some pupils find it difficult to identify and talk about what has helped them to be successful in their learning.

The pride pupils have for their school is reflected in their behaviour. From Reception to Year 6, pupils know why they have rules and that they are to help everyone learn and play together. Children in early years quickly get used to routines.

They respond immediately to adult instructions and demonstrate good independent skills.

Pupils with SEND are very well supported. Effective support plans help pupils with SEND to make strong progress towards their targets.

The special educational needs coordinator (SENCo) works closely with parents to provide specialist support and guidance.

The school has an unwavering commitment to the personal development of pupils. Pupils have a very good understanding of the fundamental British values, such as respect and democracy.

What does the school need to do to improve?

(Information for the school and appropriate authority)

• In some subjects, leaders have not identified the appropriate sequence in which to teach the key subject knowledge. As a result, pupils do not embed the subject knowledge and understanding they need to make progress. Leaders should ensure that teachers understand the core knowledge to be taught, and in what order, to meet the planned curriculum end points.

• Teachers do not use feedback consistently across all subject areas to enable pupils to identify how and why they are making progress. As a result, some pupils are not clear why they have been successful. Leaders need to ensure that teachers use feedback regularly to enable pupils to identify what they have achieved and how to use this to support their overall learning.
