Information about this school

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school complies with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish. Redfield Educate Together Primary Academy opened in September 2014 and has increased by one year group each year since then. There are currently six classes; two for each year group from Reception to Year 2. The school will increase by one year group every year until it has two classes in each year group from Reception to Year 6. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is lower than the national average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is higher than nationally. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is higher than the national average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is broadly in line with pupils nationally. Due to the fact that the school currently only comprises three year groups, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2, there is no published end of key stage 1 or key stage 2 assessment information. The school provides and manages before- and after-school childcare.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, ably supported by other leaders, provides ambitious leadership. Leaders aspire to nurture and prepare pupils for the future and are dedicated to creating a stimulating and caring environment. The school’s ‘Learn Together, Live Together’ ethos is more than a vision; leaders and teachers ensure that the principles remain at the heart of everything they do. Pupils come into school with smiles on their faces and a sense of purpose, ready to start the day. They are very polite and sociable..Leaders new to their roles are well supported to take appropriate action to meet pupils’ needs. However, they have not had time to fully develop their roles and have a sustained impact on pupils’ outcomes..Some pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, make slower progress than their peers. Occasionally other pupils are not fully challenged to deepen their understanding and reach higher standards. Teaching is good. The unique curriculum is thoughtfully planned and teachers provide a wide range of interesting experiences for pupils. This motivates them to learn. Leaders are developing a bespoke assessment system to check pupils’ outcomes. This has not yet become fully embedded so that all staff can routinely and accurately check pupils’ achievement. Staff prioritise the welfare and emotional well-being of pupils and sustain very effective parental partnerships. As a result pupils feel safe and happy at school and most parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school. Attendance is improving but some disadvantaged pupils and pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities have higher rates of absence. Leaders are supporting families to help pupils attend more regularly. Early years provision is outstanding. A high proportion of children come into the school with low starting points but outstanding teaching helps them to get off to a flying start. As a result they make rapid progress..
