Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The headteacher's decisive and clear-sighted leadership has galvanised the school to improve its performance in many ways. Together with a strong team of deputy headteachers, middle leaders, governors and staff, she has improved teaching and raised achievement, attainment and expectation throughout the school.

The governing body has improved its contributions to the management of the school. Governors better understand the performance of the school and where it can improve, and are more willing to challenge school leaders. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding.

They have excellent attitudes to learning, and are courteous and caring throughout... the school. They enjoy learning and are well prepared for their future lives. The provision for pupils' safety is excellent.

They have great faith in the adults in school, who show notable care and respect for them. Teaching across the whole school, including in the early years, is good. Teachers have high expectations and have a good understanding of the needs of their pupils.

They provide many exciting and challenging learning activities for pupils. All groups of pupils achieve well and make good progress. Disadvantaged pupils reach the same standards as other pupils in the school.

Achievement in mathematics has risen rapidly in the last year. Children have a good start to their school lives in the Nursery and Reception classes because of effective teaching and care. They learn quickly and soon become confident and independent.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils' skills in handwriting and spelling are inconsistent across the school. Consequently, the presentation of pupils' written work is not always as neat as it could be. Although attainment and achievement throughout the school have improved strongly this year, especially in mathematics, this has yet to be maintained over a longer period of time.

Information about this school

The school is much larger than the average-sized primary school. A large majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below average.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium is below average. The pupil premium is additional government funding for pupils who are looked after or known to be eligible for free school meals. The school has a Nursery which children attend part-time.

There are three Reception classes which children attend full time, and two single-aged classes in every year group from Years 1 to 6. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress by the end of Year 6. The school has extensive links to the local group of Coventry schools in Network 10.

There have been extensive building renovations and extensions during the last year. These include the provision of new classrooms and a canteen. The headteacher took up post in April 2014.

There have also been several changes of staff since the last inspection. There is a 'Sure Start' building on the school site, run by the school, which is used by the local community. This was not included in the inspection.
