Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Warlingham provides a very warm and welcoming environment in which pupils thrive and flourish.

Pupils make excellent progress, both academically and personally, to develop into confident young people. They leave school with high aspirations and a tangible thirst for learning. School leaders and governors are highly motivated and have taken decisive action to bring about rapid improvements since the previous inspection.

Teaching has improved and is now outstanding. Pupils make excellent progress in reading, writing and mathematics over time. They reach standards that are above average by the end of Year 6.

High quality sup...port for disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs has enabled them to progress at similar rates to their classmates. All teachers have high expectations for pupils. They set challenging activities and demand that pupils work hard in class.

The quality of teachers' marking and the guidance they provide to pupils is exemplary. The curriculum is imaginatively planned and highly stimulating so that pupils enjoy learning and progress exceptionally well. It is enhanced by a wide variety of enriching activities that promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very effectively.

Pupils have excellent attitudes to school. They behave exceptionally well in class and when they move around the school. They feel very safe in school owing to the high quality of care and support provided for them.

Staff have benefited from a rigorous programme of training that has improved their skills at all levels. Consequently, they are well prepared for their roles as future leaders. Subject leaders are highly trained and provide excellent support to less experienced colleagues.

Children make excellent progress in the early years to reach levels of development that are above those typically expected for their age. School leaders and governors are justifiably proud of their school. They know their strengths and they have ambitious plans for future development.

The school council plays a very active role in contributing to school improvement. Elected members seek the views of their classmates to decide what improvements will be of most benefit to all pupils. Although pupils work hard in all subjects, there are a very few occasions, particularly when completing topic work, that they do not always present their work as neatly as they could.

Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school and pupils are taught in single-aged classes. The school is part of the Glyn Learning Foundation (GLF) academy chain. It converted to an academy in September 2013 and has not previously been inspected as an academy.

When its predecessor school, Warlingham Village Primary School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is lower than the national average.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is lower than usual. This is additional funding to support those pupils who, in this school, are eligible for free school meals. There were very few eligible pupils in Year 6 in 2014.

The school meets the government's current floor standards which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. There is provision for children in the early years in the Reception class. These children attend school full time.
