Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

Wallace Fields Infant School is a heavily over subscribed two form entry school in a socially advantaged area. Very few children are entitled to free school meals and the proportion of children from minority ethnic backgrounds is broadly in line with the national average but very few are at an early stage of learning English. Although the percentage of children with learning difficulties and disabilities is broadly in line with the national average, at present none have a statement of special educational need. The school has achieved the Eco Schools bronze award, Partnership with Parents award, and Investors in People in 2001, 2004 and 2006. Key for inspection grades Grade 1 Outstanding Grade 2 Good Grade 3 Satisfactory Grade 4 Inadequate The inspector evaluated the overall effectiveness of the school and investigated the following issues: the achievement and standards of children including their abilities on entry to the school, teaching and learning, care guidance and support, and aspects of leadership and management. Evidence was gathered from the school’s self evaluation, nationally published assessment data, the school’s minutes and improvement plans, parental questionnaires, observation of the school at work and interviews with staff, children and a governor. Other aspects of the school’s work were not investigated in detail, but inspectors found no evidence to suggest that the school’s own assessments, as given in its self-evaluation, were not justified, and these have been included where appropriate in this report.
