Key Findings

This is a good school. The school is not outstanding because although teaching is good or better, it is not of a consistently high quality to bring about outstanding achievement. Under the headteacher's strong leadership the school has a sense of pride, determination and drive which have raised teachers' aspirations and improved pupils' academic attainment.

Attainment by the end of Key Stage 2 is above average and the rate at which all groups of pupils make progress is good and has accelerated significantly to enable pupils to catch up in areas where there had been underachievement. Consequently, achievement is now good. Teaching is good overall.

Disabled pupils and those with special educatio...nal needs receive well-targeted and effective support in order to ensure that they make progress similar to that of their peers. However, on occasions introductions to lessons are too long and the work set for the more-able pupils lacks appropriate challenge. Pupils' behaviour is good.

They are friendly, courteous, get on well together and have good attitudes to learning. This helps to create a happy and calm school environment in which everyone feels safe. Attendance is above average.

The headteacher has successfully steered the school through a difficult time. His leadership of teaching and management of performance are rigorous. The role of middle leaders in the monitoring of teaching and learning is not yet fully developed.

There are well-established systems to track progress, but some inconsistencies in the assessment of work, especially writing. The curriculum is outstanding. This makes a very positive contribution to improved achievement and pupils' excellent spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Information about the school

This is a larger than average size primary school. The very large majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is well below the national average.

The proportion of pupils supported by School Action Plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below average. The school met the government floor standard in 2011, which sets the minimum expectations for attainment and progress in English and mathematics. There has been a period of disruption to staffing since the previous inspection, but staffing is now stable.

The school has achieved the Healthy School status, Eco-School (silver), Sports Mark, Arts Mark (bronze) and International School Award. An after-school club on site is managed privately and was not part of the school's inspection. It is subject to a separate inspection by Ofsted.

Inspection grades: 1 is outstanding, 2 is good, 3 is satisfactory and 4 is inadequate Please turn to the glossary for a description of the grades and inspection terms
