Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school
 Since the last inspection, the new principal and vice-principal have worked in close partnership with their lead sponsor school to improve the quality of teaching and accelerate outcomes for pupils.
 As a result, standards across the whole school are rising. In Year 6 in 2015, pupils made good progress; standards were much higher than they were in 2014 and closer to the national average. All groups of pupils make consistently good progress in reading, writing and mathematics.
 This good progress is due to good teaching. Leaders and managers use new, robust arrangements to check how well pupils are learning. This assessment information is used by teachers effectively to set work for pupils based on their different needs.
 Governors from within the Ninestiles Academy Trust have a proven track record of successful educational practice leading to good outcomes for pupils. They know the school well and offer constructive advice about school improvement.
 Children make a good start to their learning in the early years. They make rapid gains in their skills and knowledge, from their typically lower than expected starting points, as a result of highly effective teaching and support.
 Pupils’ behaviour and personal development and welfare is good. Safeguarding training has been received by all staff and the arrangements for keeping pupils safe in school are effective.
It is not yet an outstanding school because
 Although outcomes in English are improving, the proportion of pupils who make better than expected progress in reading is lower than it is in writing and mathematics. This is because there has not yet been sufficient time for the changes introduced to the teaching of reading to accelerate pupils’ progress and have their full impact on their outcomes.
 Teachers are using the school’s new marking policy well, but are not yet checking consistently enough that pupils’ learning is improving as a result of their comments. Consequently, some pupils continue to make the same mistakes in their next pieces of work.
