Dear Mrs Hadley

Short inspection of Beaconside Primary and Nursery School

Following my visit to the school on 11 May 2016, I write on behalf of Her Majesty's
Chief Inspector of Education, Children's Services and Skills to report the inspection
findings. The visit was the first short inspection carried out since the school was
judged to be good in June 2011.

This school continues to be good.

Since the last inspection there has been a significant turnover of staff. You took up
your appointment as headteacher in September last year and lost no time in further
developing the good quality of education identified at the last inspection. You have
firmly established your commitment to ongoing improvement and successfully
convinced all those concerned about the journey ahead. Staff, pupils, parents and
governors feel valued and are proud to be members of Beaconside Primary and
Nursery School.

You are ably supported by a deputy headteacher, an assistant headteacher and a
data and assessment manager; al recent appointments. Together, you have
introduced fresh ideas and shared significant subject knowledge. You commissioned
appropriate experts to review independently how well the school was doing and
took immediate action to bring about effective improvements. You made sure all
staff received relevant training to support the necessary changes. Their increased
confidence is evident in the extent to which they now contribute to improvements
and share their skills.

You quickly took the necessary steps to address the area for improvement identified
at the previous inspection. You consulted parents, arranged significant training for
staff and invited suitably qualified experts to develop specific support for pupils who
have special educational needs or disability. The majority of pupils attending the on-
site autism unit are now fully integrated into the school. Staff have the necessary
