Information about this school This is a smaller than average primary school with very small cohorts. Some groups may represent one individual. It has four mixed-aged classes: a combined Nursery and Reception, a Year 1 and Year 2 class, a Year 3 class and a class comprising Years 4, 5 and 6. At this time, the High Bickington headteacher became executive headteacher across the two schools. After a long period of stability in staffing, the last two years have seen considerable changes.
From Septemberthe executive headteacher has returned to High Bickington as head of school. There is a temporary, acting executive headteacher in place across the Taw Valley Federation. The executive headteacher is the executive headteacher of TEAM academy.
An external review of governance took place in October The school runs an early years foundation stage unit, which includes part-time provision for Nursery-aged children from the age of three, and a Reception class. The early years unit is due to move to a new purpose-built site in September The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage.
The proportion of disadvantaged pupils eligible for the pupil premium funding is well below the national average. The school manages a breakfast club. Summary of key findings for parents and pupils This is a school that requires improvement The changes resulting from the federation in have stretched the capacity of leaders to maintain a good standard of education for pupils. Leaders have not provided teachers with sufficient challenge or precise enough guidance to ensure that they help all groups of pupils to make good progress.
Teachers do not always use assessment effectively to help pupils to improve, particularly in mathematics. Leaders have not acted swiftly enough to tackle the persistent absence of a few pupils. Teaching is inconsistent across year groups and between subjects, including in the early years. Teaching in the early years and in key stage 1 does not always help pupils to develop the skills of working independently. Not all teachers provide the most able pupils with enough challenge. This hampers the progress of some pupils, including children in the early years.
Weaknesses are now being tackled effectively. Particularly effective teaching in Years 4, 5 and 6 enables pupils to catch up quickly.
Good teaching fosters a love of reading. Pupils make good progress and achieve highly in this subject. Parents are delighted with the school. Those who responded to the online questionnaire were unanimous in saying that their children are happy and safe.Love in high bickington
