Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils thoroughly enjoy school and achieve well. Progress is good throughout the school, and particularly fast in reading and mathematics.

Pupils behave well and always respect the views of others. Bullying is very rare so pupils feel safe. The good and sometimes outstanding teaching means that pupils of all ages and abilities in the classes do equally well.

Pupils say that they like the way teachers make their lessons fun and help them when they find the work hard. Parents are highly appreciative of the excellent care and support that make their children feel secure and valued. Pupils say how much they like being part of a small school ...where they make such good friends.

Good leadership by the headteacher means that staff work very well as a team to make improvements in both teaching and achievement. The good spiritual provision means that pupils reflect deeply on the world around them and the way their behaviour affects others. Teachers value the annual reviews of their performance that help raise achievement.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Progress in writing is not as fast as that in reading and mathematics, particularly by boys. Some of pupils' writing in their topic work is not as good as in their English books. The checks on the quality of teaching by leaders and governors are not made often enough to achieve the school's target of outstanding practice.

Information about this school

This is a much smaller-than-average primary school. The proportion of the pupils eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children in local authority care and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, is below average and numbers are very small, both overall and in each year group. The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage and none speaks English as an additional language.

The proportions of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, who are supported through school action and at school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs, are average. Pupils are taught in two mixed-age classes. The school has recently achieved the International Schools and Healthy Schools awards.
