Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Southglade Primary School is a caring and exciting place to learn and grow.

The headteacher and the governors ensure that the well-being and emotional needs of pupils are central to every aspect of organisation and planning. The pupils feel happy and safe at school and behave extremely well during all parts of the school day. The latest restructuring of the leadership team has been instrumental in establishing improved systems for tracking pupils' progress and monitoring the performance of staff.

The poor picture of progress, attainment and attendance indicated in 2015 national information for some groups of pupils does not reflect the qu...ality of their work and the progress which is now evident across the school. Teaching is now increasingly good or better throughout the school, with particular strengths in key stage 2. The senior leaders and governors know the school well.

They acknowledge that while the progress of pupils from their individual starting points is good, and in some cases outstanding, there is more to be done to ensure that the most able pupils achieve higher standards in their learning. In the same vein, there is more work needed to ensure that the most able pupils are challenged effectively in all of their lessons. Governors and leaders ensure that all pupils have equal access to a broad and vibrant curriculum.

This includes an impressive range of learning opportunities to develop pupils' sporting and creative abilities. There is a strong sense of teamwork across the school and the morale of staff is high. The early years leader has introduced considerable changes to the early years provision during the past two years.

These are now bearing fruit. Consequently, the outcomes for Reception class children in July 2016 were considerably better than in previous years. There is a culture of warmth and support for pupils and families throughout the school.

Children settle quickly when they start in Nursery or if they join the school as older pupils part-way through the school year. The teaching of phonics has improved considerably over the past two years. However, pupils need more opportunities to apply and practise these skills to enable them to read more confidently and independently.
