Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils' achievement has improved rapidly and significantly since the previous inspection, especially in Key Stage 1, and is now good. By the end of Key Stage 2 the proportion of pupils that make the progress expected of them in English and mathematics and the proportion making better progress than this compare favourably to national figures and are rising.

The school promotes equality of opportunity very effectively. All groups of pupils, including those with special educational needs and those known to be eligible for pupil premium support, achieve well. Good teaching, with some that is outstanding, ensures that pupils make good progress and enj...oy their learning.

Teachers know their subjects well and plan activities that pupils find interesting and enjoyable. Pupils feel very safe in school because adults take very good care of them. Pupils are proud of their school.

They behave sensibly in lessons and around the school. Most have very positive attitudes to learning and to school. Attendance has risen and is now above average.

The cornerstone of the school's rapid improvement is the strong and purposeful leadership provided by the headteacher. She is ably supported by a strong team of other leaders and managers who focus sharply on improving the school. The governing body has stepped up its effectiveness.

It knows the school well, provides good support to leaders and managers, and holds them rigorously to account. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The proportion of pupils making more than the progress expected of them is not yet high in comparison to national figures. Not enough teaching is, as yet, enabling more pupils to make more than the progress expected of them.

Information about this school

This is a larger-than-average-sized primary school. Nearly all pupils are White British. Very few speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is below average. (The pupil premium provides additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children looked after by the local authority.) The proportion of pupils supported through school action is well-below average, as is the proportion supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. In recent years there have been a significant number of staffing changes, including the appointment of a new headteacher in January 2012 and a new deputy headteacher in September 2013. Several new appointments have also been made to middle leadership and management.
