Information about this school

The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The school met the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress by the end of Year 6, in 2016. Since the previous inspection, the headteacher’s temporary appointment has been made permanent.

Several teachers have left the school and have been replaced. The chair of governors is new in post and there are many new members of the governing body. The school is of an above-average size for a primary school.

The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for support through pupil premium funding is much higher than the national average. A very small proportion of pupils are from minority ethnic groups. One fifth of pupils have special educational needs and/or disabilities.

This is higher than the national average. Children in Nursery attend classes part time. Children in Reception attend full time.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, school leaders and governors have successfully improved teaching since the last inspection so that it is now good. The proportion of pupils who reach expected levels of attainment by the end of key stage 1 is now at the national level. There have been rapid improvements in pupils’ progress by the end of key stage 2 this year.

Children’s achievement in the early years continues to rise. This is because teaching takes into account their starting points and adults have high expectations. There are positive relationships between pupils and adults.

Pupils behave well and work hard. Pupils feel safe at school. Teachers use questioning well to develop pupils’ knowledge and confidence.

Pupils’ attendance is improving. However, some groups of pupils still attend school less regularly than they should. Leaders make sure the imaginative and creative curriculum enables pupils to make good progress through developing their skills in literacy and numeracy.

The curriculum also helps pupils to expand their horizons and gain a wide range of other experiences. Pupils have many opportunities to become involved in the life of the school and the local community. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development benefits as a result.

Teachers use information about starting points to plan most of the lesson activities, but do not make sure that pupils are consistently challenged throughout lessons. Although leaders have a wealth of information about how well pupils are doing, they do not routinely analyse this over time. As a result, some strategic decisions are based on less clear evidence than they could be.
