Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Given their individual starting points when they join the school, children in the Reception Year make increasingly good progress in all areas of their learning and development.

Most pupils continue to make excellent progress in Key Stage 1 and, by the end of Year 2, their achievement is outstanding. A strong and consistent approach to the pupils' personal, social and emotional development results in their outstanding behaviour and understanding of how to be and stay safe. The school is particularly successful in the promotion of a love of reading and enabling pupils to develop well this important skill.

Excellent teamwork across ...the school results from outstanding leadership at all levels, from subject leaders to the senior leadership team and the governing body. The regular and careful monitoring of teaching and learning, results in teaching being typically at least good, with much that is outstanding. Excellent attitudes to learning are fostered consistently well across the school.

The staff are highly self-critical and self-challenging; they make very accurate assessments of the school's effectiveness, and there is a constant drive for improvement. The school is highly popular with its families, who also appreciate the ways the school helps them to support their children's learning.

Information about this school

This school is a larger than average-sized primary school.

It shares a campus with Westfield Junior School; the Westfield Children's Centre is located close by. Both the junior school and the children's centre are inspected separately by Ofsted. Most of the pupils attending Westfield Infant School are of White British heritage.

A few come from other heritage backgrounds, mainly from Mixed, Asian or Asian British backgrounds. Almost all pupils speak English as their first language. Very few speak English as an additional language or are at an early stage of English language development.

The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding for particular groups, including those known to be eligible for free school meals) is average. The proportion of disabled pupils or those who have special educational needs who are supported at school action is well below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well above average.

Most pupils receiving additional support have moderate learning difficulty (MLD) but others experience a range of difficulties or disabilities including: speech, language and communication needs; autistic spectrum disorder; physical disability; severe learning difficulty; hearing impairment; and specific learning difficulty. The school has a specially resourced provision for pupils with special educational needs (its MLD-Unit, Class 7). The local authority allocates places at the unit from across the county; the school manages this provision on behalf of the local authority.

The MLD-Unit provides for up to 20 pupils with moderate learning difficulties. There are currently 19 pupils, from Reception to Year 2 attending the unit; such pupils often have multiple learning difficulties and complex personal and learning needs. There are currently a very few Year 3 pupils continuing their education at the unit while they await placement in another unit or special school.
