Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Good leadership has ensured that Two Moors Primary is a good and improving school. The headteacher has led a concerted drive to improve the quality of teaching, learning and assessment.

Outcomes, including for disadvantaged pupils, are rapidly improving.. .

The headteacher has created a strong core team, focused on ensuring that pupils achieve well and thrive. Leaders have had good support and guidance and, as a result, they lead their areas of responsibility confidently and effectively. Governors have shown resilience throughout a challenging period of staffing changes.

They provide an effective level of challenge to leaders, th...ey know the school well and they are steadfast in their determination and ambition to ensure that the school continues to improve. The headteacher has ensured that there are high expectations across the school of the progress pupils should make in reading, writing and mathematics. However, leaders are not always precise enough in identifying how to accelerate the progress that the most able pupils make.

Children get off to a strong start in the Nursery and Reception classes. Parents are very positive about the support they receive from adults. Leaders ensure that children, including disadvantaged children, make the progress they should.

Through the well-planned curriculum, pupils are well prepared for their future lives. Pupils also receive good guidance on how to keep themselves safe and how to lead healthy lifestyles both now and in the future. Pupils behave well and are increasingly able to take responsibility for their own behaviour as they move about the large school site.

Extra support provided is effective as it helps the few pupils who need it, to manage their behaviour and come to school more often. A few parents report that they are not kept well informed of actions leaders take to attend to concerns raised. Inspectors agree that this aspect of communication needs to improve.
