Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The rates of progress pupils make in English and mathematics are good, reflecting recent improvements in teaching since the last inspection. Teaching is consistently good across all the mixed aged classes. Over time, disabled pupils and those with special educational needs make progress that compares very well with similar pupils in other schools.

The teaching of reading to younger age groups is good, and pupils become confident readers by the time they leave the school. Behaviour is outstanding, and the pupils support each other extremely well in their learning. Pupils feel very safe in school, and are very positive about recent improve...ments made to classrooms and play areas.

The two headteachers make sure that teaching and pupils' progress is at least good, and have a good understanding of the school's strengths and weaknesses. The governors have made significant improvements to the school environment, through effective use of resources. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Whilst teaching is mostly good, not enough is outstanding.

More-able pupils do not always make as much progress as other pupils, given their starting points. Pupils do not have enough opportunities to practise their mathematics skills using problems based on real life situations. Reception children do not make sufficient use of the outdoor learning area.

Leaders and managers do not track the progress made by different groups of pupils as carefully as they should. Although well led by the Chair, almost all governors are new, and are not yet fully aware of the needs of the school.

Information about this school

The school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school.

Almost all of the pupils are White British. The proportions of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are supported through school action, school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs are all above average. The percentage of pupils joining the school at a time other than Reception is higher than average.

A well below average proportion of pupils is known to be eligible for the pupil premium (the additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, for children in local authority care and for pupils with a parent in the armed forces). The school's most recent results cannot be compared to the government's floor standards, which set the minimum standards for pupils' attainment and progress, because there were not enough pupils to make such comparisons meaningful. Since 2009, the school has been led by two headteachers, who share responsibility for the school and who each work the equivalent of one half of the week in turn in this role.
