Information about the school

Abbotts Ann is much smaller than the average-sized primary school serving a rural community. It has four mixed-age classes and is oversubscribed in the Early Years Foundation Stage. It has slightly more boys than girls on roll. The proportions of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and from minority ethnic backgrounds are well-below average, as is the percentage of pupils who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. In 2011, the school did not meet the government’s current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. In that cohort half of the pupils were identified with special educational needs. A new school building was opened in the summer term 2010.

Key findings

This is a good school. It is not yet outstanding as standards by the end of Year 6 declined in 2011, pupils’ use of mathematics skills is not embedded across the curriculum and inconsistencies exist in the quality of teachers’ feedback to help pupils improve even further. Nevertheless, it has outstanding features. The
