Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and governors are passionate about the care, welfare and education of every pupil who attends the school.

They have brought about considerable improvements to the quality of teaching, learning and assessment since the school opened. The executive principal plays a pivotal role inspiring staff and pupils to do the best they can. He has the confidence of the staff, who say they are proud to work at Stradbroke.

Teachers have high expectations of pupils' behaviour and achievement. This has paid dividends, particularly in English and mathematics, where standards at the end of key stages 1 and 2 have risen in the school's short life. Pu...pils across the school typically make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

Attainment in writing has improved, but not at the same rate as reading, which leaders focused on last year. As a result of consistently high expectations by all staff, pupils behave exceptionally well, both inside and outside the classroom. They are courteous, polite and eager to take part in lessons.

Leaders will go to considerable lengths to ensure that pupils are ready and able to learn, despite some pupils facing very challenging circumstances. Leadership across the school is not yet as well developed as it could be. Many leaders are new to their post or new to the school.

They have, therefore, not yet had the time to make an impact on pupils' outcomes across the curriculum. There is however, potential for effective leadership. Leaders are astute in their use of the trust's wider resources.

As a result of strong leadership, children in the Reception class get off to a flying start. They very quickly settle into the stimulating and inviting environment that leaders and staff have created. As a result, children make good, and sometimes outstanding, progress from often very low starting points.

The new curriculum is developing. However, pupils do not always achieve as well as they might in subjects like science, geography and history. Teachers do not consistently plan enough opportunities for pupils to practise their basic English and mathematics skills in other subjects.

Teachers' expectations of all pupils, especially the most able, are not high enough. Nor are some pupils' expectations of themselves. Parents say that their children thrive at Stradbroke.

They feel privileged to be a part of the school's community and say their children are happy, safe and well cared for.
