Information about this school
Queen?s Inclosure is larger than the average-size primary school. Pupils attend from the local area. All pupils are taught in single-age classes. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is above average. The proportion supported by school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs is above average. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is below that found in most schools. This is additional government funding provided to give extra support to those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and to children who are looked after. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is below average. A very small number are at the early stages of learning English. The school meets the government?s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils? attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Year 6. There is a privately run breakfast club on site.
Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school. Pupils? attainment in reading and mathematics is above average and is average in writing. Good teaching ensures that all groups of pupils, especially those eligible for additional government funding and disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, make good progress. Very high expectations and excellent relationships result in pupils? exemplary behaviour and attitudes. This supports their learning very well. Pupils? eagerness to learn and ask questions is strongly fostered by ?Curious Cornelius? the school?s mascot. As a result, they thoroughly enjoy coming to school as shown in their well-above-average attendance. Pupils say they feel very safe in school and this view is corroborated by parents. A new leadership team has recently been established by the experienced headteacher. A determined effort by the team to improve the quality of teaching further is helping the school to continue to improve standards especially in writing. Checking how well the school is performing and the success of their plans for further improvement is regularly carried out by the headteacher and knowledgeable governors. This is successfully driving their firm commitment to becoming an outstanding school. Strong partnerships with local schools, parents and the local community fully support and enrich pupils? learning and development. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Existing outstanding teaching is not yet used sufficiently to ensure that all teachers develop the skills they need to move their teaching from good to outstanding and to help pupils make the best possible progress. Pupils do not use their writing skills sufficiently across other subjects to write for a range of purposes and audiences.
