Key findings

The overall effectiveness of South Green Junior is good. Pupils are involved successfully in all activities whenever they join the school. This is because of good leadership and management and staff who welcome pupils from all backgrounds and abilities.

The key to the school's success is that care and guidance for pupils are excellent, both in their academic work and personal development. As a result, their behaviour is outstanding, attendance is high and pupils say they feel extremely safe in school. Pupils achieve well from their starting points and attainment in 2011 was significantly above average in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

Over the last three years, the oldest pupils...' attainment has risen steadily. Their achievement is not outstanding because a small number of pupils in each year group do not make the expected progress. The school's systems to track the progress of individual pupils is not fully developed.

Most pupils make good progress because teaching is good. Teachers use imaginative resources such as films and pictures to capture pupils' interests and the marking of pupils' work is excellent. Occasionally, pupils are not totally clear about how to extend their learning in lessons so that they are attaining a higher level of skill.

The headteacher and deputy headteacher consistently set very high expectations. A good level of engagement with parents and carers means pupils have positive attitudes to learning.
