School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and the deputy headteacher provide determined, dedicated and astute leadership. With the support of your staff, you have established a safe, caring school where pupils develop a love of learning through a broad and exciting ‘creative curriculum’. The environment is attractive and stimulating; displays in the corridors and classrooms are vibrant, and teaching walls provide practical support and examples of good practice. You know your school well and from the outset of this inspection you were able to give an honest and accurate self-evaluation of the school’s strengths and priorities for further improvement. You and the leaders for English, mathematics and science work hard to ensure that effective strategies are widely shared to bring about further improvements. Although much has been done to improve provision, you have identified that there is still more to be done to ensure high-quality teaching across the school. Members of staff who talked to me, and those who responded to Ofsted’s online staff survey, said they are proud to work in the school and feel valued. They respect and value your leadership qualities and almost all say that the school has improved since the last inspection. Parents are supportive of the school and this is evident in the comments made through Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View. One parent commented: ‘I would recommend Newham Bridge Primary to every parent in the catchment area as the school is amazing, always making sure the children try to the best of their ability.’ Parents who I spoke with informally at the beginning of the day were keen to praise the school. One remarked: ‘This is a lovely school. My kids come home happy each day and always want to talk about what they have learned.’ Many talked of the sense of community and the hard work of the staff, who they describe as always being approachable. Pupils are rightly proud of their school, and enjoy the exciting range of lessons, extra-curricular activities and trips which the staff organise. Pupils highlighted particularly the time and care taken by the staff to get to know them as individuals. All of the pupils who I talked to said they would recommend the school to a friend. Overall, pupils achieve well throughout the school. The proportion of pupils achieving the expected standard in the Year 1 phonics screening check is now in line with the national average. However, in 2018 the proportion of Year 2 pupils reaching the expected standards in reading, writing and mathematics was lower than the national averages. Leaders are now working to increase the proportion of pupils who reach the expected and higher standards by the end of Year 2. Although this is starting to pay off, this is still an area for further improvement. In key stage 2, pupils make good progress and this is reflected in the progress measures for reading and mathematics, which have been higher than the national averages for the past three years. Safeguarding is effective As the designated safeguarding leader, you ensure that all the necessary safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and that all records are of high quality and meticulously kept. The school business manager ensures that all checks for the recruitment of staff are in place. All governors and staff receive safeguarding training on a regular basis. You have prioritised the emotional welfare of vulnerable pupils and work closely with a therapeutic counsellor. A specialist teaching assistant also provides additional oneto-one support for vulnerable pupils. Pupils’ behaviour is good and attitudes to learning are positive. They feel safe and well cared for in school. They say that there is rarely any bullying but, if there was, it would be dealt with immediately. Pupils talk confidently about keeping themselves safe when they are using the internet. They were able to describe to me exactly what I need to do to stay safe online. A group of pupils known as ‘Digital Leaders’ provide other pupils with advice regarding safer internet use. Road safety training is provided for all, and pupils in upper key stage 2 have Bikeability training. Older pupils receive first aid training from the Red Cross and St John Ambulance. Pupils’ attendance is monitored assiduously by you and your office staff. In your development plan you have set a target of 96% attendance and you are determined to reach this. Presently, attendance is marginally short of this figure.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
