Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The executive headteacher and head of school are unrelenting in their drive to ensure that pupils receive a good-quality educational experience during their time at Nunthorpe Academy. Senior leaders and governors have an accurate view of the strengths of the school.

Crucially, they also have a candid understanding of those areas that need attention to improve. Middle leaders complement the work of senior leaders. They are enthusiastic about the subject areas they lead and demonstrate the ability to improve further the quality of teaching and pupils' outcomes in their subjects.

Pupils are confident and self-assured. They are willing to their views and engage in discussions. Pupils receive timely careers information, advice and guidance.

They appreciate this. As a result, the vast majority of pupils progress to education, employment or training when they leave. Most pupils attend school regularly.

Leaders' concerted efforts to work with pupils, especially disadvantaged pupils, and their families is paying off. Students in the sixth form benefit from high-quality and consistently strong teaching. As a result, they achieve excellent outcomes.

The provision in this phase of the school is outstanding. Overall, the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good. Teachers' strong subject knowledge contributes effectively to their planning for pupils.

Most tasks and learning opportunities engage pupils and develop their knowledge, skills and understanding across a range of subjects, successfully. Despite the quality of teaching being, in the main, strong, there are some inconsistencies. This is particularly so in the expectations and level of challenge in pupils' learning from some staff.

The vast majority of pupils demonstrate respect and tolerance for and towards others. However, a significant minority do not. These pupils from time to time spoil the positive atmosphere in the school for others.

Therefore, pupils' behaviour requires improvement.
