Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Good teaching enables all pupils, including those who need extra help, to make consistently good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. In 2013, Year 6 pupils performed exceptionally well in their grammar, punctuation and spelling tests and reached high standards.

Standards at the end of Key Stage 2 are above average in reading and writing and average in mathematics. Pupils currently at the school are doing well. The work they produce in lessons and in their books shows that standards are rising, particularly in mathematics.

Teachers and teaching assistants create a positive atmosphere for learning in classrooms. They plan interes...ting tasks to help pupils learn well. Pupils are happy at school.

They say they feel safe and that adults take good care of them. Pupils behave well. They have positive attitudes to learning and always try hard.

Good support for disabled pupils and those with special educational needs helps these pupils to make good progress. Leaders, managers and governors work well together to improve teaching and raise pupils' achievement. Sport and physical education are a high priority.

This means that all pupils have ample opportunities to develop a healthy lifestyle. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Over time, teaching in mathematics has not been as strong as in reading and writing, so some pupils did not fully reach their potential in this subject last year. Pupils' mathematical work is not marked as well as their work in English, so they are not always sure how they might improve their work.

Information about this school

This is an average size primary school. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The remaining pupils come from a number of different minority ethnic backgrounds.

The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is below average. A very small number are at an early stage of learning English. The proportion of pupils supported through the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, those in the care of the local authority and those with a parent in the armed services) is broadly in line with the national average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is average. The proportion identified for additional support through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is average. The school meets the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

The school provides a daily before-school craft club and a daily after-school club. The school shares the site with a privately run nursery and a pre-school. These two settings did not form part of this inspection.
