School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Austrey is much smaller than the average-sized primary school.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is about one in 17, well below the national average. The proportion with a statement of special education needs or education, health and care plan is well above average.

The percentage of pupils from minority ethnic groups is well below the average nationally. No pupils have been identified whose first language is not English.

The proportion of pupils supported by pupil premium funding (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority) is well below average. The proportion of pupils who join or leave the school mid-way through a key stage is above the national average.

Austrey converted to become an academy school in September 2013. It is one of four schools in the Heartwood Church of England Academy Trust. When its predecessor school, also known as Austrey CofE Primary School, was last inspected by Ofsted it was judged to be good overall.

The headteacher was appointed in September 2015 to lead Austrey and another school in the trust. He apportions his time equally between the two schools. The Chair of the Governing Body was in post in the previous school. He is currently Chair of the multi-academy trust as well. A new deputy headteacher post was established at the same time that the headteacher joined the school. The special educational needs coordinator works across two schools in the trust, spending a day a week at Austrey. Two part-time early years teachers left in December 2015 and have been replaced by a full-time teacher.

Pupils are taught in three mixed-age classes. Year 4 pupils are split across two classes, by age.

The school is supported by a school improvement adviser who is linked to the partnership.

There has been a falling number of pupils on roll since the last inspection.

Based on their unvalidated 2015 results, the school meets the government's 2014 floor standards. These are the minimum standards expected for pupils' learning and progress in reading, writing and mathematics.
