Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school The headteacher drives continuous improvement in all areas of the school's work with highly effective and calm precision. The complex and ever-changing nature of pupils' differing needs, combined with the challenge of recruiting high-quality teachers, has inspired innovative solutions ensuring outstanding outcomes for all pupils.

Leaders, governors and the Hull Collaborative Academy Trust (HCAT) provide high-quality challenge and support for teachers at the earliest stages of their careers and for those who are more experienced. This results in outstanding teaching so that pupils make outstanding progress. Leaders have made sure the wide r...ange of subjects studied and how they are taught are based on solid research into what works well.

Pupils are immersed in projects and activities that inspire them to think deeply and discuss persuasively. This builds up their resilience to keep trying when things are hard to understand. All staff go to great lengths to ensure there is minimal difference between the progress made by different groups of pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

This is due to precise checks on what pupils know and understand and expert use of resources to make sure gaps in learning are plugged. Pupils' behaviour and personal development is exceptional. Pupils learn to understand the impact their choices make on other people because all staff consistently use the same approach.

Pupils learn to manage their own behaviour and are sensitive to the needs of others. Pupils are clear about why they feel safe in school and they know who will help them. They learn how to keep themselves safe in lots of different ways.

Staff work tirelessly to protect pupils from harm and to nurture those who have experienced neglect. The early years provision is exceptional. Leaders have ensured a sea-change since the last inspection.

Children are absorbed in learning because the provision entices and intrigues them. From starting points lower than in most schools, pupils reach high standards in reading, writing and mathematics. A very high proportion of pupils are on track to reach and exceed the standards expected for their ages this year.

Thoresby School is a constant in an ever-changing community. The school is overwhelmingly supported by parents, staff and all who share in pupils' successes because it adds significant value to pupils' life experiences.
