Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The standards reached by pupils at the end of Year 2 and at the end of Year 6 are above the national average and improving year-on-year.

The vast majority of pupils, including those supported by the pupil premium, achieve well. This is as a result of teachers' high expectations of their work and behaviour. Teaching is typically good, fostering good attitudes to learning and an enthusiastic curiosity.

There is an increasing proportion of outstanding aspects of teaching. The Early Years Foundation Stage provides stimulating and exciting learning experiences for children, ensuring that they make good progress. Leaders and managers have improvements in the quality of teaching through close checks on pupils' progress and training for teachers that meets their individual needs.

Pupils' behaviour is good. Pupils understand the link between good behaviour and achievement and they enjoy coming to school. Attendance is good.

Pupils feel very safe in this friendly school. They learn about and are respectful of different cultures and beliefs. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Some of the work that teachers ask children to do in subjects other than English and mathematics is not challenging enough.

Teachers do not always give pupils feedback that is precise enough to help them to improve their work and they do not always check that their advice is followed. Leaders and managers do not record all incidents of poor behaviour in a central record. Leaders do not evaluate the impact of the support they give to disabled pupils and those with special educational needs well enough.

Information about this school

The school is much larger than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils eligible for support through the pupil premium (additional funding to support pupils eligible for free school meals, looked after by the local authority or with a parent in the armed services) is well below the national average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is below average but the proportion supported at school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs is above average.

The large majority of pupils come from White British backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is below average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.
