Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders have ensured that the improved academic standards seen last year have been sustained.

Leadership at all levels is effective. Leaders support teachers well as they strive to improve their own performance. Different groups of pupils, including those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities, are making good progress this year.

Teaching is effective across a range of different subjects. When being taught mathematics, however, pupils do not readily access relevant resources. Pupils progress well in their learning because : they are motivated by, and enjoy, the curriculum.

More pupils are capable of attainin...g high standards. Reading underpins teaching and learning. This has enabled pupils to develop a wide vocabulary relevant to different subjects.

Disadvantaged pupils, including those who need to catch up in their learning, make particularly strong progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Children learn well in the early years. They make good progress in all aspects of their learning.

The vigilant safeguarding culture ensures that pupils are kept safe at Oakhill. Older pupils say that behaviour has improved over the last few years. Leaders recognise that further improvement can be achieved.

Pupils are tolerant, and they respect school property and each other well. They are well prepared for life in modern Britain. Attendance remains stubbornly below the national average.

Staff are determined to do all they can to support families to improve their children's attendance.
