Main findings

Tredworth Junior is a good school. Pupils enjoy learning and behave well. They feel safe and know there is always someone to talk to should they have a problem.

The school enjoys an excellent partnership with parents and carers who are supportive and appreciative of the outstanding care, support and guidance their child receives. Their many positive comments included: 'The school has provided my children with a fantastic education' and 'My child really enjoys her time at school and is up an hour before us, so they must be doing something right!' In lessons, good relationships between staff and pupils feature strongly and pupils are keen to do well. Good quality teaching ensures that pupils, including ...those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, make good progress.

By the time they leave the school at the end of Year 6, their attainment is broadly average. The school, however, is not complacent; it recognises that setting clear targets for improvement in a timely fashion, planning activities that precisely match the learning needs of all pupils and providing high quality feedback to pupils through marking are required to improve pupils' learning further. The school is a harmonious community where pupils from a wide range of differing backgrounds get on very well.

Equal opportunities are at the forefront of the school's work. The positive atmosphere owes much to the very good relationships between adults and pupils and the work that has been done to develop the school as an integral hub of the local community. The school is well led; leaders and managers at all levels are effective.

There is a determination to raise standards and improve provision further. The school has implemented a number of strategies to improve attendance which are beginning to have a positive impact. However, a small number of pupils are still absent from too many school sessions.

There is more to be done to ensure that parents and carers and pupils understand that good attendance is necessary to support good achievement. Self-evaluation is rigorous and accurate. The tracking and analysis of pupils' progress are detailed, enabling teachers to implement intervention strategies where there is evidence of underachievement.

Morale is high and staff work very well together. Members of the governing body visit regularly, take a keen interest in the school and play a strong role in determining the strategic direction of the school. The changes and subsequent improvements made since the previous inspection demonstrate the school is well placed with a good capacity to sustain further improvement.
