Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Pupils at Yavneh Primary School make exceptionally strong progress. The quality of teaching is excellent in all subjects. Consequently, pupils achieve very well.

The 'Yavneh way' is woven through all aspects of school life. This sets the expectation that pupils will behave exceptionally well, be resilient and work hard. Pupils are very clear about what is expected of them and strive to achieve this.

The curriculum is broad and balanced. Topics both build on pupils' interests and expand their understanding of the world around them. Pupils are encouraged to use their English skills in other subjects, such as history and geography....r/>
Phonics teaching is very effective. Building on this, pupils' writing is developed very well. Opportunities for writing are seized upon throughout the curriculum.

Pupils also take part in regular discussion, role play, drama and open-ended activities. Teachers make learning enjoyable. The teaching of science and music is a key strength.

Pupils develop strong practical skills, together with accurate understanding of specific subject vocabulary and ideas. Leaders are highly regarded by staff, parents and carers. Leaders have ensured that all involved in the school share the same high expectations.

Teachers receive quality coaching and development to help them perform to the highest standard. Governors know the school well and challenge leaders to further improve the school. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are expertly supported within their classrooms, with tasks adapted to support their needs.

As a result, this group of pupils make very good progress. Parents are highly supportive of the school. Virtually all say that their children are making exceptional progress and are very happy.

Teachers keep parents well informed about their children's life in school through regular 'focus child' meetings. Pupils' work is of high quality. However, there are occasions when their presentation and handwriting is not as excellent as it could be.

This is due to differing expectations from some members of staff about this aspect of learning.
