Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders have successfully established a school community united by a team ethos in which pupils and staff thrive in their work. Leaders and governors have an accurate view of the strengths and weaknesses of the school and implement effective improvement plans. Leaders have developed a broad and balanced curriculum that develops pupils' confidence and interests.

The curriculum promotes British values effectively and prepares pupils well for life in modern Britain. Governors know the school thoroughly and take strategic decisions that lead to substantial improvements. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good in English and mathematic...s but not universally strong across all subjects.

Improvements in teaching, learning and assessment have led to better outcomes. Both attainment and progress are improving. In 2018, the proportions of pupils reaching the expected standards in reading, writing and mathematics were above the national averages.

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress. These pupils are fully included and achieve well across the curriculum. Pupils are very courteous and respectful to each other.

They demonstrate the well-established school values exceptionally well. Children in the early years make a good start to their education. They enjoy their learning and conduct themselves very well.

They make good progress and are fully prepared for Year 1. Safeguarding is effective. Adults keep pupils safe and address child protection concerns in a timely fashion.

Because subject leaders are new to the school, they have not yet implemented their development plans. This means that they have not helped teachers plan sequences of learning that build consistently on what pupils already know. Some teachers do not ensure that pupils learn to spell subject-specific words correctly.

Leaders have not targeted extra funding to meet the needs of disadvantaged pupils effectively. Not all these pupils make the progress they should. Not all staff are successful at getting potential high achievers from the expected standard to reach the greater-depth or higher standards.

The senior leadership team consists of the executive headteacher, the head of school, the special educational needs and/or disabilities coordinator (SENCo) and the senior teacher. Although Tendring Primary School is maintained by the local authority, the governing body commissions the Learning Pathways Trust to provide the executive headteacher for the school.

The proportion of pupils with an education, health and care plan is above the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND support is below the national average. The proportion of pupils receiving the pupil premium grant is below the national average.
