Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Outstanding leadership from the headteacher and governors has ensured that the school has improved considerably since its last inspection. Staff work very well together to identify and tackle weaknesses and, as a result, teaching is good.

Some teaching is outstanding. Standards are higher than they were and pupils achieve well, whatever their starting points. Some pupils make excellent progress in reading and writing.

Teachers provide well for the mixed-age and mixed-ability classes. They ensure that pupils are given work that helps them to build successfully on what they have learnt before. Pupils enjoy school very much, behave impeccab...ly and feel very safe.

They concentrate fully, work hard and are extremely proud of their achievements. Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs achieve well because they are very well supported. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Marking is not as effective in mathematics as it is in English and pupils do not always have enough opportunity to use their mathematical skills in other subjects.

Fewer pupils reach the higher levels in mathematics than they do in reading and writing. Occasionally, teachers' planning focuses too much on what pupils are expected to do, rather than what they are expected to learn.

Information about this school

The school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school.

There are two classes, one of which contains Reception children and pupils in Key Stage 1, while the other has pupils from Key Stage 2. Almost all pupils are from White British backgrounds and very few speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action plus, or have a statement of special educational needs, is above average.

No pupils are supported at school action. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium, which is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are in care or whose parents serve in the armed forces, is well below average. The school's national test results cannot be compared to the government's floor standard, because there are fewer than the minimum of 11 pupils required to make such a comparison meaningful.
