Information about this school
This first school is similar in size to an average-sized primary school. The school has grown in size since the previous inspection and expects to expand to around 300 pupils. Building works have taken place to accommodate the increase in pupil numbers. The majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds with others coming from a wide range of ethnic groups. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is similar to the national average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium, which is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority, is below average. Children in Reception attend full time. The school runs a breakfast club.
Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school. Pupils make good progress across the school. Attainment is above average in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Year 2. Pupils continue to achieve well and by Year 4 are well prepared for moving onto the next stage of their education. Teaching is good. Teachers plan a range of interesting work that helps pupils to learn well. Pupils behave well around the school. Pupils work well together in lessons and are respectful towards each other. Pupils say that they feel safe in the school. All parents and carers responding to the online Parent View questionnaire and those spoken to said that their children are safe and happy in the school. The headteacher, supported by other managers and governors, has ensured that teaching and achievement have remained good since the previous inspection. Governors know the school very well and visit regularly. They provide a good level of support and challenge. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is well promoted. Pupils have a say in the life of the school and take responsibility for making improvements. Pupils learn about different faiths and cultures and this prepares them successfully for their lives in modern Britain. Children in the early years make good progress and are well prepared for Year 1. It is not yet an outstanding school because: Teachers’ expectations for pupils’ learning are not always high enough. Marking does not always give next steps for pupils to improve their work, particularly in writing. Pupils do not always follow these up when they are given. Plans for improvement do not have clear steps that can be checked regularly by leaders and governors. Middle leaders do not monitor their areas rigorously enough to ensure rapid progress for all pupils.
