Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school There is a genuine sense of teamwork at The Lincoln Manor Leas Junior Academy.

Staff feel valued, parents say that they feel involved and pupils agree that 'we can all work together'. Governance is a real strength of the school. Governors provide a successful balance of support and challenge for school leaders.

Leaders, including governors, have an accurate understanding of the strengths of the school and what needs to be done to improve it further. Leaders support pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities well. They make sure that pupils receive the help they need to enable them to achieve well from their starting poi...nts.

Leaders effectively promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through a variety of thoughtfully planned learning opportunities. The quality of teaching and learning is good. Teachers and teaching assistants use questions effectively to make sure that subject content is fully understood by pupils.

Teachers use their strong subject knowledge effectively to teach new ideas to pupils and to make strong links from one lesson to another. As a result, learning makes sense to pupils and they make good progress over time. Pupils behave well around school and during their playtimes.

They enjoy the resources and play equipment available to them. They treat their school, their friends and adults with respect. Carefully planned activities with local secondary schools make sure that pupils are well prepared for the next stage in their education.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : On occasions, teachers do not make sure that tasks are sufficiently challenging for all pupils or intervene quickly enough when pupils are ready to learn something more difficult. Pupils are not achieving as well in mathematics, spelling, punctuation and grammar as they are in reading and writing. Subject leaders are not keeping a close enough check on the progress pupils are making in all subjects across the curriculum.

Teachers are not consistently insisting on a high standard of presentation in pupils' work. In some cases untidy work is accepted.
