Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders have created a caring, inclusive school.

Their work to support pupils' personal development and welfare is strong. Vulnerable pupils receive effective support to overcome any barriers to learning. Safeguarding is highly effective.

The school is improving because ambitious leaders, governors and staff of the Nebula Federation are determined to ensure that they provide the best possible education for all pupils. Leaders have taken effective action to address previous inconsistencies in teaching, learning and assessment and pupils' outcomes. Leaders and governors have an accurate view of the school's strengths and areas for developme...nt.

They provide high-quality training and use evaluations effectively to improve all aspects of the school. Leaders at all levels show a strong understanding of their areas of responsibility and contribute effectively to school improvement. Children in early years make a good start to their education.

They settle quickly because of high expectations and well-established routines. They are well prepared for Year 1. The most able pupils are effectively challenged throughout the school.

As a result, the proportion of pupils who reach the higher standards in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Year 6 is well above national expectations. The curriculum is well planned by leaders and provides a wide range of activities, trips and visitors to extend pupils' experiences and personal development. The actions of leaders and other adults to improve behaviour are successful.

Pupils enjoy coming to school and show positive attitudes to learning. Staff use their knowledge of pupils effectively when planning learning. As a result, individual pupils' needs are well met.

The sharing of expertise across the federation, which is improving teaching, learning and assessment, has not yet had a positive impact on the progress pupils make over time. Teachers show good subject knowledge and ask effective questions to extend pupils' learning across the curriculum. However, pupils have few opportunities to apply their English and mathematical skills across other subjects to develop their knowledge and understanding further.

Information about this school

Previously, the school had been part of the Harnser Federation, until it joined the Nebula Federation in December 2017. This is a federation of six primary schools with one executive headteacher and an executive senior leadership team. A reconstituted governing body is responsible for all schools in the federation.

The staff within the Nebula Federation work collaboratively to support school improvement across the federation. There have been many changes in leaders and teachers since the previous inspection. The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school.

Almost all pupils are of White British heritage. Children in early years attend full time in Reception Year. The proportion of pupils with SEND is in line with the national average.

The proportion of pupils who are eligible for pupil premium funding is in line with the national average. The school has a Church of England designation. The most recent section 48 inspection was in November 2017.
