Information about this school

Chapel Haddlesey is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. Children in the early years attend full time in the Reception class. Almost all pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is above average. The proportion of pupils deemed disadvantaged and supported through the pupil premium is below average. (The pupil premium is additional government funding provided to support disadvantaged pupils including those who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority.) There were too few Year 6 pupils in 2015 to comment on floor standards. The school has two classes. Reception-aged children and pupils in Years 1 and 2 are in Class 1. Pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 are in Class 2. A new headteacher was appointed in September 2015. A temporary teacher for Class 1 took up post in January 2016. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school operates a breakfast club that is managed by the governing body.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher is driving school improvement strongly. Parents, pupils, staff and governors all praise the impact she has had on promoting high expectations of them all. School improvement has been particularly rapid this year because the systems to monitor the quality of teaching and learning are rigorous. Teaching is now consistently good and improving strongly. Pupils thrive as a result. Children in the early years make a good start to their learning. A love of learning is nurtured early and continues to grow throughout. Pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs or disability, all make at least expected progress from their starting points, and an increasing proportion exceed expectations. Standards have improved since the previous inspection. Pupils behave well, feel safe in school and show care and consideration to others. Relationships are extremely positive. Governors now have a good overview of pupil progress and the impact of the actions taken to improve. They understand school data and check its accuracy and reliability with staff. The school promotes pupils’ understanding of respect, tolerance and equality well. As play leaders and lunchtime monitors, pupils know they have a part to play in society. The local authority provides effective support to the school through staff training and reviews of the school’s performance. Governors and staff have used this support to shape priorities for improvement and build capacity for the future. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils, particularly the most able, do not have sufficient opportunities in science and other subjects to carry out investigations and research to extend their skills. On occasions, teachers do not check that pupils apply their basic literacy and mathematics skills accurately. Consequently basic errors prevail and this limits the final outcomes for pupils.
