Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The executive headteacher and head of school have taken swift and effective action to improve the quality of teaching and learning across the school. Leaders have a clear vision for the school, which they have successfully shared with all members of staff. They have created a culture of open, collaborative leadership.

Members of St Chad's Academy Trust offer strong support for the school and know the school well. The teaching of phonics is strong. Pupils read well, with confidence and enjoyment Leaders' decisive actions have resulted in improvements to the quality of teaching and learning.

The progress that pupils make in reading, writing... and mathematics is improving. However, there is not always sufficient challenge in lessons to ensure that all groups of pupils, particularly middle-attaining pupils, are making as much progress as they are capable of. Although current progress evident in pupils' books is strong, reported progress in mathematics is still below the national average by the end of key stage 2.

Most teachers use questioning well to deepen pupils' knowledge and understanding. However, this is not always the case and when questioning is weak, it results in missed learning opportunities. Leaders have designed a creative curriculum and are now ready to enhance this curriculum so that it provides pupils with key skills.

Children get off to a good start in the early years. Leadership is strong and supports the good quality of teaching and learning. Parents and carers say that their children are happy and safe in school.

Pupils enjoy school; they say their teachers are kind and make learning fun. Pupils behave well around the school and are friendly, polite and well-mannered. Middle leaders have recently become more involved in monitoring and evaluating their subjects and areas of responsibility.

However, they are not yet fully accountable for outcomes in their subjects and areas of responsibility, nor are they all fully involved in school improvement activities. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development is a strength of the school. Pupils are mature and caring and are well prepared for life in modern Britain.
