Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher’s strong leadership, supported by a highly effective governing body, has brought about improvements to ensure that teaching, learning and assessment meet pupils’ learning needs. Leaders have been successful in establishing high standards of behaviour, which have created a calm, purposeful and orderly learning environment. Outstanding support for pupils’ personal development and welfare creates a strong culture of care in which pupils demonstrate respect for others. The strong focus on developing teaching, learning and assessment has addressed historical underachievement. Current outcomes, particularly in key stage 1, are significantly better. Further improvements are required in the teaching of reading, particularly in key stage 2. Leaders have established strong provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. However, pupils’ knowledge and understanding of fundamental British values are not well developed. The school has benefited from its membership of the Clevedon Learning Trust, which has supported the school in effecting improvement priorities. The school’s self-evaluation is accurate. Leaders use this well to plan for further progress. A rich and vibrant curriculum successfully engages pupils. They respond with enthusiasm to the opportunities available. Outstanding provision in the early years provides an excellent foundation for the progress children make at the school. Pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning and make good use of reflection and self-review to further support their progress. Leaders have taken strong steps to raise attendance and have introduced effective measures to secure improvements. Leaders continue to work to ensure that no groups of pupils are disadvantaged by low attendance. Leaders ensure that comprehensive safeguarding measures support a strong culture of safeguarding.
