Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher provides strong leadership and sets high expectations for staff and pupils. He is extremely ambitious for the school. This ambition is shared by all governors, leaders and staff.

The majority of pupils make good progress throughout the school and achieve the standards expected for their age. Differences in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and other pupils are diminishing. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding.

Pupils are confident, self-assured and enthusiastic learners who are proud of their school. Leaders promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very successfully. Pupils are well prepared for ...life in modern Britain.

Parents are very positive about all aspects of the school. They appreciate how approachable senior leaders are, how well the school is run and the welcoming environment that staff create. The curriculum is well planned and offers pupils a wide range of exciting and relevant learning activities that stimulate their imagination and interest.

The quality of teaching is good. Teachers' strong subject knowledge and enthusiasm engage pupils' interests and promote learning, while teaching assistants provide effective support. Consequently pupils are enabled to extend their understanding across a wide range of subjects.

Pupils' writing, particularly across key stage 2, is a strength. Pupils are safe and well cared for. Attendance continues to improve and is above the national average.

Children make a positive start in the Nursery and Reception classes and consequently make good progress across their first years in school. The Reception classes' outdoor environment is not used effectively to promote learning. Teachers sometimes set work which does not challenge the most able pupils and, as a result, too few reach the highest standards of attainment.

Pupils are developing greater fluency and accuracy in basic number skills but their ability to use and apply their knowledge to solve mathematical problems is less well developed.

Information about this school

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is below national levels, while the proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is below that found in most primary schools. The school runs both a breakfast and after-school club.
