Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Achievement is outstanding. All groups of pupils make rapid progress and reach standards which are well above the national average by the time they leave the school.

Standards in mathematics and reading are particularly impressive. Some pupils reach levels which far exceed the expectations for their age. Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs achieve well in comparison to similar pupils across the country.

Teaching across the school is of a consistently high quality. This has enabled pupils to make the rapid progress and reach the high standards they are achieving. Teachers' marking and the assessment of pup...ils' achievement is of high quality.

This has contributed to the high standards that pupils reach. Teachers have excellent subject knowledge and, as a result, pupils are very well informed. Pupils are highly enthusiastic about their learning and show great interest and determination in their lessons.

During lessons, they cooperate readily and help each other to learn well. Pupils' behaviour both inside and outside lessons is exemplary at all times. They are courteous and polite, and show respect and understanding towards each other and adults.

Pupils are very well informed about how to keep themselves safe, and cared for extremely well. The leadership of the school is outstanding. School leaders have high expectations for all staff and pupils, which have resulted in the continuous improvement in the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement.

The headteacher and governing body show great determination in looking for even more ways to improve the opportunities for pupils. The headteacher has some experience in supporting the leadership of other local schools. A wider partnership with other schools to build even further on the success of this school, is yet to be established.

Governors have a thorough understanding of how well the school is doing and offer the right level of challenge and support to ensure that the school continues to improve. Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school and highly value the quality of education and level of care it provides.

Information about this school

This is a smaller than average sized primary school.

Most pupils are from White British backgrounds. A below average proportion of pupils is eligible for the pupil premium funding. The pupil premium provides additional funding for pupils in local authority care and those known to be eligible for free school meals.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs who are supported through school action is below average. The proportions of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs are broadly average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

St Oswald's CofE Academy converted to become an academy school on 1st September 2012. When its predecessor school, Finningley CofE Primary School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good. The school provides a breakfast club.
