Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Welton Primary School is a happy and welcoming school. The headteacher has established a shared whole-school ethos of care, inclusivity and respect that permeates all the school does. The Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership Trust (MNSP) provides effective challenge and support to school leaders, including appropriate training to improve teaching.

The early years leader ensures that children settle quickly and know class routines. No time is wasted before ensuring that children make a good start in their learning. There is a clear focus on giving children the basic skills they need to be ready for Year 1.

Outcomes are improving throughout ...the school. However, too few pupils reach the higher standard in mathematics by the end of key stage 2. Pupils work enthusiastically in mathematics and develop good problem-solving skills.

On occasion, pupils do not set out their work or explain their thinking as clearly as they could. The quality of teaching across the school is good. Teachers' secure subject knowledge, alongside consistent approaches to teaching and learning, ensures that current pupils make good progress from their starting points.

Pupils feel safe at the school. They are taught well how to keep themselves safe in different situations. Pupils' behaviour is good.

They are friendly and respectful. They are courteous to each other, adults and visitors. Teaching and learning for disadvantaged pupils and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are well organised.

Additional funding is used effectively to ensure that these pupils make good progress from their starting points. Staff are proud to work at the school and are grateful for the many training and development opportunities that are open to them. Staff morale is high.

The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils is a strength of the school. As a result, pupils have a good understanding of British values. Leaders hold a wealth of information about the quality of teaching and pupils' progress.

However, their evaluations are not sufficiently sharp to identify fully where further improvements could take place.
