Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The headteacher provides inspirational leadership.

She, along with her highly efficient leaders and governors, is constantly looking for ways to improve the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement across the school. Pupils' achievement is outstanding. All pupils are making rapid progress in English and mathematics, starting from their broadly average starting points in the Nursery and the Reception classes.

Pupils are on track to achieve high standards in English and mathematics this year. Teaching is outstanding in all year groups. Teachers have high expectations of their pupils; they set tasks that are sufficiently and build consistently on pupils' prior learning.

Pupils' behaviour and attitudes to learning are exemplary and contribute considerably to the school's harmonious environment and their achievement. They are very proud of their school and readily help each other to learn. The governing body has a wide range of expertise which it uses very well to support and challenge the school in equal measure.

They show great determination to improve further all aspects of the school.

Information about this school

The Wroxham School is an average-sized primary school. The majority of pupils are White British and the rest are from a wide range of minority ethnic heritage.

A very small proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language but none are at the early stages of learning English. The school converted to an academy in June 2012. This is the first inspection of the school since it became an academy.

When the predecessor school, also called The Wroxham School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be outstanding. The proportion of students supported by the pupil premium is well below average. This is extra government funding given to the school on the basis of the numbers known to be eligible for free school meals, in the care of the local authority or from service families.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs that are supported through school action is below average. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well above average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.

The school is a national teaching school, designated in 2011; it provides places for trainee teachers in partnership with the University of Nottingham. As a teaching school, it leads an alliance of 50 primary, secondary and special schools. The headteacher is a National Leader in Education.
