Information about this school

This school is smaller than most other primary schools. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, the additional funds provided by the government for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and children in local authority care, is below the national average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are supported at school action, school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is in line with the national average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Standards at the end of Key Stage 2 are above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics. The headteacher is an effective leader who has successfully led work to improve the school following the previous inspection. Leaders, managers and the governing body ensure that teaching and learning are good in all classes. Teachers have high expectations of pupils and teach lessons that help them to learn well. Attendance is above average. Children make a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage class because of good teaching and the high quality of care. Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes are good and this contributes strongly to the good learning in lessons. They say they feel safe in school and are aware of the different forms of bullying. Pupils benefit from a good variety of exciting additional activities and experiences throughout the year. These include visits, residential stays and visitors to the school. The school accurately evaluates how well it is doing and what needs to be done next to improve. It is not yet an outstanding school because : There are not enough planned opportunities or resources for children in the Reception class to learn to find things out for themselves in the outdoor environment. Teachers do not always give pupils of different ages and abilities sufficiently demanding work and, in a small minority of lessons, the pace of learning slows after a good brisk start.
