Dear Mrs Collins



Ofsted monitoring of Grade 3 schools: monitoring inspection of Edward Heneage
Primary School

Thank you for the help which you and your staff gave when I inspected your school on
Wednesday 14 September 2011, for the time you gave to our phone discussions and for the
information which you provided before and during the inspection. It was also helpful that
you and your deputy were able to arrange meetings and help draft the timetable.

In January 2011, one of the previous joint headteachers took over the leadership of the

school. At the same time a deputy headteacher was appointed.
As a result of the inspection on 11 to 12 May 2010, the school was asked to address the
most important areas for improvement which are set out in the annex to this letter. Having
considered all the evidence I am of the opinion that at this time the school has made
satisfactory progress in making improvements and good progress in demonstrating a better
capacity for sustained improvement.
At the end of Year 6 and Year 2 the attainment picture is more positive than at the time of
the previous inspection. Year 6 pupils, who took the national tests in English and
mathematics in 2011, attained standards, overall, that were higher than in previous years.
However, the quality of writing, especially that of boys, still gives cause for concern and
restricts the proportion of pupils from making the expected progress in English. Pleasingly,
more girls, than that seen nationally, attained the higher Level 5 in mathematics;
disappointingly, this standard was not replicated by boys. The assessments undertaken by
class teachers at the end of Year 2 indicate that, although there are weaknesses in pupils’
writing, attainment improved. Some girls, at the end of Year 2, reached the higher Level 3 in
all subjects. Although improvements can be seen in the Early Years Foundation Stage, there
is a noticeable gap between the progress made by girls, compared to that made by boys,
where weaknesses in their calculation and writing are evident.
Tracking the progress made by individual pupils is now commonplace and is used to inform
the deployment of additional support and to group pupils for different subjects. The number



of pupils who join or leave during the school year is high; consequently, tracking the
performance of these pupils is especially important. Senior leaders demonstrated during the
inspection that the potential of these pupils is known and understood by staff. Where
possible, the parents and/or carers of the pupils, who join the school other than at the usual
time, are encouraged and often enabled to support their children successfully.
Writing targets are now displayed in the classrooms. Pupils discussed confidently with the
inspector their understanding and use of their personal targets and many explained clearly
how they can improve their work. Senior leaders recognise that some teachers are more
skilled at including new initiatives and the expected ways of improving pupils’ writing in their
planning. Generally, teachers now pay more attention to the quality and content of pupils’
writing in subjects other than English. In the main, work is marked carefully and often

pupils’ writing targets are used to help them improve their work in different subjects. Pupils

are being given clear ideas and stimuli to help them develop their writing, for example, by
using popular or topical themes. Consequently, pupils are enjoying considering and writing
about the differences between their current Victorian school and the new buildings which
they hope to occupy next year.
Greater autonomy and responsibility is given to subject leaders, who, in discussion with the
inspector, showed a strong understanding of their work and how they can contribute to the
development of their subject area. Many have provided individual support to their colleagues
and have also led training during staff meetings, often as a result of attending external
courses themselves. Learning how to observe lessons effectively is another method by which
senior leaders ensure that subject leaders are able to improve and develop the quality of
teaching in their subjects. Monitoring records show that teaching has improved, despite
some lingering inconsistencies in a few places.
There is a collective approach toward improvement and a determination that all pupils
should reach their potential. Regular monitoring and tracking of individual pupils ensure that
any gaps in provision are identified quickly. Although some aspects have improved more
rapidly than others and standards have risen, there is no complacency within the school.
The headteacher is determined that any variations are ironed out and the established
momentum for improvement continues throughout the school.
Local authority officers have continued to monitor the work of the school. However, the
shape of any future support is, at present unclear, due to the reorganisation that has taken
place. The school has, however, made careful and successful use of external consultants to
provide training and support where needed.
I hope that you have found the inspection helpful in promoting improvement in your school.
This letter will be posted on the Ofsted website.
Yours sincerely
Marianne Young



Her Majesty's Inspector



The areas for improvement identified during the inspection which took place May


  • Improve the attainment and progress of pupils who join the school during the school
    year by:

    - working closely with the parents of these pupils to ensure that parental
    support for their learning is maximised.
  • Improve standards of writing, especially in Years 3 and 4 by:
    - ensuring pupils develop skills in extended writing
    - ensuring that particular writing skills are developed in subjects other than
