The school provides a breakfast club during term time. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6.
Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school. Rosehill Junior School is a rapidly improving school. The headteacher’s inspiring leadership is driving improvements at a brisk pace. Governors and staff share the headteacher’s vision and act with determination to improve the quality of teaching and achievement. Teaching is good with well planned activities that capture pupils’ interest. Expectations for learning and behaviour are consistently high. Teaching assistants increase pupils’ progress by leading effective and well-targeted sessions in and out of the classroom. Pupils currently make good progress in all years in reading, writing and mathematics. This is a significant improvement since the previous inspection. Disadvantaged pupils attaining increasingly well. Any gaps that remain between their attainment and that of other pupils in the school are being addressed and closing rapidly. The most able pupils make rapid progress because : challenging tasks extend their learning to reach standards higher than those expected for their age. Pupils like coming to school, attendance is good and punctuality is excellent. Behaviour in lessons is good and often exemplary. Pupils are very polite and friendly. They feel safe and are well cared for. Pupils relish the many responsibilities they hold within school. The promotion of British values is excellent. Pupils have an extremely well developed understanding of the rights and responsibilities of children within modern Britain and actively strive to uphold these. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Plans for school improvement do not always show precisely how leaders can measure success and evaluate quickly if further actions are required. Attainment is not as high in English grammar, punctuation and spelling as seen in other subjects. Progress in learning these skills is not consistently good across all year groups.
