School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Your dedication and determination that pupils at St Anne’s CofE Primary School make the best possible progress is evident. You are ably supported by your assistant headteachers. As a new leadership team, you have set high expectations for staff and pupils. You provide good-quality training for staff so that they are becoming increasingly skilled. You have an accurate view of the strengths and weaknesses of the school, and have ensured that your leadership team has clear roles and responsibilities in regard to improving the achievement of pupils even further. Leaders carefully and regularly monitor the progress different groups of pupils make. Since taking on the role of headteacher in 2016, you have ensured that ‘The St Anne’s Spirit’ remains a strength of the school. The school has experienced a number of significant changes to the staff team in recent years, including most teachers and all senior leaders. After this period of change and uncertainty, which had a negative impact on its effectiveness, the school is now good and improving once again. Parents appreciate how you have stabilised the school. All staff who responded to the Ofsted questionnaire are proud to work at St Anne’s. Pupils behave extremely well, both in class and around the school. They talk enthusiastically about tasks in class and share ideas to support each other’s understanding. One parent told me, ‘You can tell which children have attended St Anne’s as they are always the most polite, caring children and this is down to the school’s ethos.’ Pupils have a positive attitude to their learning and are reflective. The relationships between pupils and staff are positive. This ensures an environment that is highly conducive to learning. Pupils told me how much they enjoy school. One pupil said, ‘We are a kind, welcoming school.’ Pupils attend school well and overall attendance has been in line with the national average consistently since the previous inspection. Governors have an accurate view of what is working well and what could be even better. They have specific roles and responsibilities and are dedicated to their work. They have a strong focus on pupils making the best personal and academic progress. At your previous inspection, leaders were asked to improve the quality of teaching and learning by making sure that work is always hard enough for the most able pupils. They were also asked to strengthen the support for pupils who are disadvantaged. Although there is still more to do, both of these areas have continued to improve, particularly since your arrival. The increased level of expectation is evident in the work that we saw during the inspection, and in the proportion of pupils who are on track to achieve the higher standard. Safeguarding is effective. You, your leadership team and governors have successfully created a strong safeguarding culture and ethos. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose. Pupils say they feel happy and safe. They explain that this is not just because of what teachers do, but because other pupils in the school make them feel safe too. Parents who responded to Ofsted’s online survey, Parent View, said that their children are happy and secure at the school. You take the approach that ‘safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility’ and ensure that all staff receive appropriate and regular training. Leaders, including governors, carry out audits of safeguarding across the school. This includes monitoring the school’s single central register to ensure that it is kept up to date and meets statutory regulations. Safeguarding across the school is effective. Inspection findings In order to check that the school remains good, I followed a number of lines of enquiry. My first line of enquiry was to establish how well pupils achieve in mathematics. The attainment of the pupils across the school is regularly higher than that of other pupils nationally. However, in 2016 and 2017, key stage 2 pupils’ progress from their starting points was lower than that found nationally in mathematics. I wanted to determine how well leaders are ensuring that pupils make consistently good progress, and how effectively pupils are taught mathematical skills. You and your team have analysed the reasons for pupils’ progress in mathematics being below average. You have identified what is needed for each individual pupil to succeed and teachers have acted on this. You rightly decided at the beginning of 2017 to introduce a new mathematics scheme. As a result, pupils are given increasingly effective opportunities to develop their reasoning and problem-solving skills. During the inspection, we observed pupils being challenged to think hard about what they were learning. Pupils are starting to apply what they already know using a range of different examples. The actions you have taken are already having an impact on pupils’ learning. We looked at pupils’ books and found that these showed that a good range of mathematical skills are taught. Teachers use an increased range of resources to support understanding across all classes. Pupils are now making good progress in mathematics at key stage 2.

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.
