Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

This school is well led and managed. The headteacher, supported by all staff and the governors, has created an inclusive school where all pupils can thrive. School leaders have taken effective action to improve achievement.

Standards are rising and progress has improved markedly this year. Teaching is good and all staff work together well to help pupils to learn. Teachers often plan interesting and engaging activities to help pupils make good progress.

Staff use questions well to deepen pupils' understanding. The curriculum promotes positive attitudes to learning, strongly develops spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness... and prepares pupils well for secondary school and life in modern Britain. The behaviour of pupils is outstanding.

They are polite, considerate, responsible and keen to learn. They contribute greatly to the positive atmosphere in the school. The school's work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding.

Staff are fully trained and informed on how to ensure pupils are safe, and take appropriate action if required. From very low starting points, children make outstanding progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They quickly develop the skills that they need to be successful learners in Year 1 and beyond.

Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs benefit from personalised learning experiences to meet their individual needs. This allows them to make good progress in the Additionally Resourced Provision, in intervention groups and in mainstream classes. Pupils with a range of special educational needs in the school and in other local and regional schools receive high quality support from the Rushall Advisory Team.

This has led to improved progress for many pupils. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers do not ensure that all groups of pupils, particularly the most able and disadvantaged pupils, are challenged to make rapid and sustained progress over time. Teachers' marking and verbal feedback do not consistently show pupils the next steps that they need to take to improve their work.

Information about this school

Rushall Primary School is an average-sized primary school. Most pupils are from White British backgrounds and speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils who are disadvantaged and eligible for support through the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority) is above the national average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is above average. The school has an Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP) catering for children with autism and speech and language needs. Pupils with special educational needs join the school at different times of the school year in most year groups in order to benefit from this provision.

The Rushall Advisory Team provides school-to-school support and in-school support. Staff within this team provide support for pupils with a range of special educational needs. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
