Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and managers have taken swift and effective action to address a recent dip in outcomes for pupils. The Learning Academy Trust is providing effective support in improving the quality of teaching and learning.

Staffing is now stable. Teachers have been deployed from within the trust to ensure that this school has the expertise it needs to sustain the improvements in teaching and learning. The improvements are supporting the many new pupils who have joined the school in recent years in all year groups.

Children get off to a good start in the early years foundation stage. They are well prepared for key stage 1. Results in the Year 1 p...honics check have been consistently high over time.

By the end of key stage 2, most pupils, especially the most able, are now making strong progress in all subjects. Progress is weaker for some of the pupils who are new, disadvantaged or who have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). This is due to gaps in their prior learning and language development, including their reading comprehension.

Pupils enjoy the broad range of subjects, trips and clubs provided, especially the beach school. The caring ethos of the school supports pupils' strong personal development, behaviour and welfare. Parents and carers praise the staff for 'going the extra mile' for the children in their care.

Safeguarding is effective. Parents agree with their children that the school keeps them safe.

Information about this school

St Newlyn East Learning Academy joined The Learning Academy Trust in September 2013.

The trustees appointed a local advisory board and executive headteacher to direct the work of this sponsored academy. The day-to-day running of the school is managed by a head of school. The current executive headteacher and head of school have both been appointed since the previous inspection.

The executive headteacher is a national leader of education. The subject leaders for English are specialist leaders of education. The trust works closely in association with the Kernow Teaching School Alliance and the Kernow English Hub, in both accessing and contributing to a range of professional development.

Since the last inspection, there have been changes in staffing and, at the request of the local authority, the school has almost doubled in size. This is due to the growing population in the nearby town and surrounding community. Pupils join the school in different year groups and throughout the school year.

The school is now almost as big as the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is below average. The proportion of pupils with SEND who are supported by the school is below the national average.

The proportion of pupils with an education, health and care plan is broadly average. Most pupils are of a White British background. Very few pupils speak English as an additional language.
