Our school was last inspected in June 2013. We were judged to be a Good School.
Stead Lane Primary School is a good and improving school.
From their individual starting points, pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics, regardless of ability or background.
The leadership team, including governors, under the clear direction and guidance of the headteacher, is sharply focussed on continuous school improvement.
Teaching and learning are good across the school because teachers plan learning in detail and teach interesting lessons. On occasion, teaching is outstanding.
Staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating environment in which pupils learn well and develop into responsible young people. Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the work of the school.
Governors are knowledgeable about the school because they regularly check on how well it is doing. They are, therefore, able to provide a good balance of support and challenge.
Pupils enjoy being at school and, justifiably, feel safe. They say that if they have any problems they will be well looked after. Pupil behaviour and attitudes to learning are good.
