How we perform as a school
How we are judged by Ofsted

Prior to becoming Tinsley Meadows Primary School (and then Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy), we existed as two separate schools: Tinsley Junior School and Tinsley Nursery Infant School.

In March 2013, Tinsley Junior School was judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

In March 2014, Tinsley Nursery Infant School was judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

Tinsley Meadows Primary Academy was inspected on 9 April 2019 and judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted.

We are incredibly proud of this result and we are now striving to become an ‘Outstanding’ School.

How we perform as a school

All our staff strive for excellence and work to ensure every child is supported to reach their full potential. Our results are good and our children make excellent progress throughout their journey of education.

Below is a summary of our most recent performance data.

Key Stage 2 data 2019:

We go over and above to ensure that we not only meet performance standards but exceed them, giving our children the best possible foundation for their secondary education.

If you compare our performance against National and Local Authority results it is evident that the school is performing above, and in some instances significantly above the expected levels for achievement.

Pupil Premium Awards

In December Tinsley Meadows received a letter from MP David Laws notifying us that we had won £1,000 for our efforts in closing the gap between premium and non premium children. Please see attachment below

Pupil Premiums Award 2015


More recently, we also received notification that we had won a place in the finals for the National Pupil Premium Awards 2015! We are delighted to confirm that following our attendance at a ceremony in London on 25th March 2015, we are the proud winners of a further £5,000 as ‘Regional Runner Up’.


This money will go a long way to helping us to close the gap even further and ensure high outcomes for our disadvantaged pupils.
