Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Pupils make good progress and their attainment is above average when they leave Year 6. Reading is especially strong. Teaching is good with examples of outstanding teaching.

Pupils appreciate the richness of activities provided and are eager to learn. Behaviour overall is exemplary. Pupils enjoy being together.

The older pupils take great delight in looking after the younger ones during their first year in school. Pupils take heed of all of the advice they are given about looking after themselves. They say they feel very safe.

The headteacher, leaders and governors all have the same desire to raise pupils' attainment. S...kills are shared especially in teaching. The school is getting better because : when weaker aspects or a lack of progress are identified, swift action is taken.

This improves pupils' achievement and the quality of teaching. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not all lessons go at a brisk pace and some pupils start to lose interest. Occasionally, the work set for the more able pupils is not hard enough, especially in Key Stage 1.

Opportunities for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage to learn outdoors are not as stimulating as those indoors. The information gained from tracking pupils' progress is not always used effectively to gain a precise picture of pupils' progress or to set priorities in subjects.

Information about this school

The school is larger than the average sized primary school.

Very few pupils are from minority ethnic groups and the number of these who speak English as an additional language is low. The proportion eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding provided for children in local authority care, those from service families and those known to be eligible for free school meals) is below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action is average.

The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The school has achieved many awards, including the Race Equality Mark, Eco Schools, Learning Excellence (for assessment for learning and the creative curriculum) and the Good Practice Award for Coaching, which involves teachers sharing their skills with others.
