Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The headteacher, senior leaders and governors have worked very well together to ensure that teaching and learning in this rapidly expanding school has improved since the previous inspection. Teachers and teaching assistants work exceptionally well together.

They are well trained and are fully supportive of senior leaders in their ambitions. Governors support the school well. Together with the headteacher, they have been very successful in their negotiations with the local authority to secure new classrooms for their increasing number of pupils.

Pupils' behaviour is good. They work exceptionally well together and are very welcoming toward...s the much larger than average proportion of their classmates who come to the school part way through the school year. The school has very strong and well-developed links with the community and the children's centre located on site and with families.

Parents are happy that their children are safe and well looked after and say that they appreciate the school's 'open door' philosophy. Teachers' high expectations of pupils have helped to ensure that their attainment in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Key Stage 1 in 2014 was the best that it has been for several years. The quality of phonics teaching (linking letters to the sounds they make) is outstanding.

Pupils' attainment in reading by the time they leave at the end of Year 6 is well above average. The proportion of pupils attaining the highest possible Level 6, in mathematics, has been high for the last three years. All groups of pupils make at least good and sometimes outstanding progress across all year groups and in all subjects.

All aspects of the early years, including leadership, teaching, provision, achievement and work with parents, are good and continually improving. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Standards in writing are not as good as in other subjects, and too few opportunities are provided for pupils to extend their writing skills in subjects such as history, science and religious education. Governors' knowledge and understanding of how pupils' achievement compares with other schools are still developing.

Information about this school

This school is larger than the average sized primary school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is above average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils for whom the school receives pupil premium funding is average.

The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is just below average. An above average proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language.

Nursery provision is part time and reception provision is full time. The school meets the government's current floor standards which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics. A before and after-school service and a children's centre operate from the site.

Both are subject to separate inspections. Since the previous inspection there have been a number of staff appointments, including a new deputy headteacher, four newly qualified teachers and several teaching assistants. At the time of the inspection, a new Chair of the Governing Body had been appointed and the headteacher has announced her retirement.

Since the previous inspection, the school has increased in size, and the number of classes has increased from six to 11. At the time of the inspection, one of the five additional classrooms required had been built to accommodate the school's increasing number of pupils. The proportion of pupils joining the school part way through the year is much higher than average.
