Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is below average and fewer speak English as an additional language than in most schools. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The school works with ‘The Key’, a unit within another school run by the local authority to provide additional support for pupils. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for looked-after children, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and pupils with a parent in the armed forces) is below average. There are no looked-after children or children from service families in the school. The school meets the government’s current floor targets, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. There is a breakfast club and after-school club on site but neither are managed by the school’s governing body and are inspected separately.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The school is well led and managed due to the strong leadership of the headteacher and the effective challenge and support of the governing body. Teaching is good because lessons are well planned and organised at the right level for pupils of different abilities. Pupils with special educational needs and those who need extra help are making as much progress as other pupils. Teachers help pupils to use their learning targets well so that they understand what they need to do next. Behaviour is good and pupils get on well together. They feel safe, well looked after and happy in school. The rich and interesting subjects and topics are a strength of the school. Through themes and studying novels in depth pupils explore a wide range of skills, ideas and subjects. The majority of pupils make good progress in most subjects by the time they leave the school. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Other leaders are not fully involved in taking on additional responsibilities when needed or coaching staff to improve. Marking sometimes does not give enough detailed help for pupils to improve their work. Progress in writing is not yet as good as in reading and mathematics. The school is continuing to help pupils to make faster progress but standards are not yet as high as they could be.
