School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a primary academy that is broadly average in size.

The academy is situated in the western part of the town of Swindon in northern Wiltshire, and draws most of its pupils from the local area.

The majority of pupils are of White British heritage; others come from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds.

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (which provides additional funding to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children in local authority care) is about two in every five pupils. This is above average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is about one in every 15 pupils. This is broadly average.

The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is more than one in every four pupils. This is well above average.

The early years provision consists of a part-time Nursery class and a full-time Reception class.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

Hazelwood Academy converted to become an academy school in June 2013. When its predecessor school, Toothill Primary School, was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be satisfactory overall.

The academy is sponsored by the Academies Enterprise Trust.

Following a period of interim leadership, a new headteacher was appointed from April 2013. In autumn 2014, several new teachers joined the school, including the two early years teachers.

Among the school's accreditations are the Eco Schools (Silver), the Healthy School (plus) and the Swindon Young Carers (Standard 1) awards.

The Early Birds breakfast club is managed by the governing body and formed part of this inspection.
