Discussions with pupils, both formally and informally, their questionnaire returns and school records all confirm that any form of bullying is very rare. Pupils say, ‘We don’t experience bullying; only occasional minor disagreements involving name calling or not talking to each other.’ They are clear that any issues that do arise are dealt with quickly and effectively by staff. The school has an anti-bullying week and the school council was involved in the drafting of policies and procedures to deal with bullying.

Leadership and management

The headteacher has an accurate view of the school and a strong determination to provide the best possible education for pupils. She is well supported in this by senior leaders who work well as a team to promote effective learning. They monitor progress carefully and quickly put strategies in place to support those pupils not making enough progress in order to eliminate any unevenness. They acted quickly to provide professional development for staff in order to improve provision in mathematics. This demonstrates a good commitment to promoting equality of opportunity and tackling discrimination. Performance management is closely linked to pupil performance. The school improvement plan is used well to set targets for key Inspection report: Western Downland C of E Primary School, 25−26 April 2012 8 of 12 Inspection grades: 1 is outstanding, 2 is good, 3 is satisfactory, and 4 is inadequate Please turn to the glossary for a description of the grades and inspection terms improvements and is now being reviewed regularly by leaders and governors. The headteacher has an accurate view of the quality of teaching, which is monitored carefully, with a clear focus on raising the bar and giving support to improve practice. The school has maintained its good provision and addressed the key issues from the previous inspection. Attainment is above average and pupils make good progress. This shows that the school has the capacity for sustained future improvement.

There are effective policies and procedures in place to ensure the safety of pupils, including regular health and safety checks of the premises. The curriculum is enhanced very well by special events such as a visit to a Viking long-house, afterschool clubs for drama and football, and an end-of-term whole-school production.

Pupils at Key Stage 2 all enjoy residential visits, for example, a sleepover in Year 3 and a visit to Brownsea Island in Year 5. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is developed well through opportunities for reflection in collective worship and in the caring and supportive ethos of the school.

Good links with parents and carers through, for example, informative newsletters, termly parental interviews and good involvement in homework ensure that they are fully involved in their children’s learning. Their response to the inspection questionnaires was very positive in all aspects. The school benefits from collaborative work with other schools in the cluster, a sports partnership and Burgate Academy.

Governors are enthusiastic and rigorous in their commitment to the school. They offer it a good level of challenge and support and are developing their monitoring role more fully through carefully reviewing school improvement priorities.

New school inspection arrangements have been introduced from 1 January 2012. This means that inspectors make judgements that were not made previously.

The data in the table above are for the period 1 September to 31 December 2011 and represent judgements that were made under the school inspection arrangements that were introduced on 1 September 2009. These data are consistent with the latest published official statistics about maintained school inspection outcomes (see www.ofsted.gov.uk).

The sample of schools inspected during 2010/11 was not representative of all schools nationally, as weaker schools are inspected more frequently than good or outstanding schools.

Primary schools include primary academy converters. Secondary schools include secondary academy converters, sponsor-led academies and city technology colleges. Special schools include special academy converters and non-maintained special schools.

Percentages are rounded and do not always add exactly to 100.

Weiskopf Abstract: Traditionally, the language faculty was supposed to be a device that maps linguistic inputs to semantic or conceptual representations.

Recently this view of language has been challenged by advocates of embodied cognition. Drawing on empirical studies of linguistic...»
