Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Strong leadership by the acting headteacher, ably supported by the acting deputy headteacher and governing body, has brought about a rapid improvement in the achievement of pupils. Leaders, managers and the governing body have returned the school to its previously stable footing, following a period of change.

As a result, the quality of teaching has improved and the previous underachievement of pupils has been reversed. The school is well placed to improve further as seen in the recent rapid improvement. Teaching is good and ensures that most pupils make good progress, including the most able pupils, those who are disabled or have special educati...onal needs and those who are disadvantaged.

Teachers know the abilities of the pupils well. They check how well they are learning and make sure if any pupils fall behind, they catch up quickly. From typical starting points, pupils achieve well.

The progress of disadvantaged pupils is accelerating so that the gap between these pupils and other non-disadvantaged pupils nationally is now narrowing. Outstanding spiritual, moral, social and cultural development contributes to good behaviour and positive attitudes from pupils towards their learning. Their conduct around the school is exemplary and they make a good contribution to the school community.

The curriculum offers pupils a wide range of exciting opportunities and experiences such as residential trips, bikeablility, musical theatre and sports activities, which enrich pupils' learning. Parents are very supportive of the school. They say that their children are happy, safe and well cared for in school.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : The achievement of children in the early years is not as good as that of other pupils in the school. The quality of teaching of reading and writing is not consistently good throughout the school to ensure that pupils make outstanding progress.

Information about this school

This is a larger than average sized primary school.

The vast majority of pupils are of White British backgrounds. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is lower than average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium is well below the national average.

The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6. The school has achieved the Sainsbury's Gold Games Award.

In the previous 18 months, the senior leadership of the school has been affected by the serious illness of the previous headteacher. At the time of the inspection, the acting headteacher had been in that post for 18 months. The deputy headteacher was seconded from a local primary school in September 2014.
