School performance

A pdf link showing Crabtree pupils' attainment at the 2018 SATs is given to the left of this page but school performance data is also published on the Department for Education's website and here you can find information on performance, characteristics and spend per pupil for the previous financial year. 


Our last Ofsted inspection took place in May 2009. The report states that this is '...An outstanding school in which pupils achieve extremely well and where standards are exceptionally high year-on-year.' In an environment that strives for continuous improvement, the staff have worked hard in the intervening years to sustain outstanding practice and leadership.

You can read the full report by clicking on the pdf link to the left of this page or by visiting the Ofsted website.

Other statutory information

Pupil Premium

The school receives Pupil Premium funding annually to support disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Crabtree Junior School has discretion to decide how to use the funding and this is set out in the statement published in the link to the left of this page.

Sports Premium Allocation 2017/2018

Under the vision that ALL children leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport all schools have been allocated P.E and Sports Premium funding. In total Crabtree Junior School has received a total of £18560.00

At Crabtree Junior School we will work to ensure that the funding is used to achieve self sustaining improvement in P.E and school sport that meaures against the following 5 key indicators:

1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - kick starting healthy active lifestyles

2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvemnet

3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

4. broader experience of a range of sports and and activities offered to all pupils
