About St Aidan’s Voluntary Controlled Primary School
The strong leadership of the headteacher and deputy headteacher gives the school a clear sense of direction and is supporting well those new to middle leader responsibilities. Leaders are ensuring that the quality of teaching, learning and pupils' achievement continues to improve. Pupils make excellent progress in all classes.
By the end of Year 6, their attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is well above national averages and has been for several years. Teaching is consistently at least good. Teachers and learning support assistants work effectively together to ensure the needs of the pupils are met.
Teachers h...ave high expectations and set work which is often inspiring. The teaching of phonics (linking letters and sounds) is outstanding. Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make the same progress as their peers because they are very well supported.
Pupils' behaviour in classrooms and social areas is outstanding. Pupils respect each other, and staff, and this helps to create a positive ethos. Pastoral care is a key strength and the school's work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding.
All pupils feel safe and know whom to talk to should they have concerns. The school promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well and ensures that pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils enjoy school visits, such as those to local museums, and said that visits help their understanding of different topics.
Children have an excellent start to their education in the early years. They quickly settle into the routines of the Nursery and Reception classes. Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school and believe that their children are happy.
Parents said that their children are well looked after and that they feel well informed about their progress. The governing body is exceptionally effective. Governors know the school well and they robustly hold leaders to account for the performance of pupils as well as for the quality of teaching.
Information about this school
St Aidan's Voluntary Controlled Primary School is an average-sized primary school. The proportions of pupils from ethnic backgrounds other than White British, and who speak English as an additional language, are larger than average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is just below the national average.
The proportion of disadvantaged pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding which, in this school, supports pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is below the national average. There were too few disadvantaged pupils in Year 6 in 2014 to make any comparisons between their achievement and that of other pupils without the risk of identifying individuals. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress at the end of Year 6.
Early years provision consists of Nursery for three-year-olds, including ten full-time places and one full-time Reception class. The school is part of a local Network Learning Community, a group of 11 primary schools and three secondary schools which work together to help raise standards and improve experiences for pupils. The headteacher took up her post in February 2014.
The school has a breakfast club that is managed by the governing body. The school also provides a number of after-school clubs and a range of sporting activities. The school holds the Haringey in Bloom and the Green School Grounds awards and has Fairtrade School status.
