Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Since becoming an academy, the school has made rapid progress.

The excellent leadership of the headteacher has brought about considerable improvement. She is extremely well supported by leaders at all levels, including governors. Together they have ensured that teaching and pupils' achievement have improved dramatically.

From starting points well below what is typical, pupils make outstanding progress to reach average standards. Current Year 2 and Year 6 pupils are on course to reach above-average standards. The quality of teaching is outstanding.

Teachers have very high expectations of pupils. All leaders teach and set excellent example to other staff. Pupils rise to the challenges they are set and have very positive attitudes to learning.

Their behaviour is outstanding both in class and around the school. The school promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development extremely well. Pupils say they feel completely safe at school, a view supported by almost all parents and carers.

Pupils have a very good understanding of different types of bullying and say that The Hyde is 'a bullying-free school'. The provision for children in the early years is outstanding. Children thrive because they enjoy a wide range of stimulating experiences carefully planned to meet their needs.

All groups of pupils make outstanding progress. The school meets the needs of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs extremely well. Pupils at the early stages of learning English acquire the language quickly because of the high-quality support they receive.

Governors are highly effective in supporting and challenging school leaders. The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust and the local authority both play a key role in helping the school to improve even more. Leaders use their knowledge of what could make provision at the school even better to secure improvements.

Information about this school

The Hyde School is much larger than the average-sized primary school. There are two classes in each year group. The school became a sponsored academy with the Elliot Foundation Academy Trust in September 2013, when the predecessor school, of the same name, was judged to require special measures.

The early years consists of a Nursery unit and a Reception unit. Most children attend the Nursery unit part time, although there are some full-time places, and the Reception unit full time. Almost all pupils are from a range of minority ethnic backgrounds.

The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is high, including many at the early stages of speaking English. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority) is above average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' progress and attainment in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Key Stage 2. The school shares its site with a children's centre, which is not part of the school and which is run independently by Barnet Local Authority. The children's centre was not inspected as part of this inspection.
