Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. School leaders and managers are passionate about pupils achieving high standards.

Although many pupils start with below average skills and experience, standards are close to average when they leave the school. Achievements in sport are exceptional and pupils enjoy a wide range of extra opportunities outside school hours. Senior staff have high expectations of pupils and all staff understand and share their desire for the school to be as good as possible.

The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. They have the highest expectations for their own behaviour and they know how to keep safe. The large majority of pupils make good progress, in mathematics.

Teaching is good. Staff have clear expectations, have exceptionally positive relationships with pupils and provide a very good range of extra clubs and activities. Parents are pleased with the quality of education and care provided.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Progress in reading and writing was not as strong in 2013. Although it has now improved there are still a few pupils who have not made good progress in writing. Although subject leaders and governors have clear information about the progress of different groups of pupils they are not always using this to ensure that all are making good progress.

Information about this school

This is a larger than average sized primary school. Around one quarter of pupils are from minority ethnic groups, which is slightly less than the national average. About one tenth of pupils speak English as an additional language.

About one fifth of pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which is slightly below the national average. This provides additional funding for those known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs identified at school action, school action plus or with a statement of special educational need is very low.

No pupils are currently identified at school action. This is because the school is maintained by a local authority that is piloting this approach to identification of special educational needs. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectation for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics.
