Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher's uncompromising vision and high expectations of what pupils can achieve in all aspects of their education have been at the heart of the school's improvement.

Leaders check routinely that their actions are improving pupils' achievement. This enables them to act promptly to support pupils who need extra help. Middle leaders are determined and resolute in their drive to raise standards.

Their leadership has contributed significantly to the sustained improvement of the school. Overall, current pupils are making good progress across year groups and in a range of subjects. In subjects such as English, where progress has not bee...n strong in the past, leaders have taken action to ensure that current pupils are making better progress.

Previously, disadvantaged pupils, pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and boys made slower progress than other pupils nationally. Leaders' actions have ensured that their progress is improving towards that of other pupils nationally. Governors are ambitious for the school.

They use an in-depth knowledge of the school to challenge leaders to improve pupils' outcomes. Impartial careers guidance and well-organised work experience placements ensure that pupils are ready for their next steps in education. Teaching is good.

Teachers strive to support pupils' learning and challenge them to make strong progress. Pupils receive useful feedback which they value and use to improve their work. Pupils are excellent ambassadors for The Clere School.

They are polite, courteous and respectful to all and are proud of their school. Pupils behave well in lessons and are keen to succeed. They have an excellent attitude towards their learning and work well in collaboration with each other.

Safeguarding policies and procedures are effective. All staff place the well-being of pupils at the heart of everything they do. Pupils feel safe in school and have an understanding of how to keep themselves safe.

Incidents of bullying are rare. Most pupils attend school regularly. Leaders' work with families to further improve attendance is increasingly successful.

The quality of teaching and learning across the curriculum has improved and continues to do so. However, there are still some pockets where expectations of pupils' achievement are not sufficiently high. While the progress of disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND is improving, teachers do not focus sharply enough on overcoming barriers to learning so that they make faster progress.
