Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders, including the governing body, took rapid and decisive action to address the concerns identified at the previous inspection. Governors now have a precise understanding of the issues facing the school. They challenge and support leaders to continue to make improvements.

Subject leadership, particularly of English and mathematics, is increasingly strong. Pupils' attainment is improving in key stages 1 and 2. Leaders have developed a rich curriculum that gives pupils opportunities across the full range of subjects.

Educational and residential visits enrich pupils' experiences, particularly of the environment and through outdoor pursu...its. At the end of key stage 2, the proportion of pupils who reach the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics is above average. A greater proportion than the national average attained the higher standard.

In 2017 and 2018, all disadvantaged pupils made strong progress and attained the expected standard at the end of key stage 2. Pupils enjoy school and the many opportunities offered to them. Attendance is equal to the national average.

Teachers in key stages 1 and 2 plan carefully to develop pupils' knowledge and skills. The whole-school assessment policy is followed consistently in key stages 1 and 2. Pupils receive helpful feedback from their teachers.

The leadership of the early years requires improvement. Assessment information is not used effectively to plan activities, particularly for the most able, that ensure children make good progress. The outdoor provision for the early years is not used well enough to promote their learning and progress.

Outcomes for pupils at the end of key stage 1 improved in 2018 and were closer to national figures. However, the proportion of pupils reaching the expected standard or working at greater depth remained below the national average. The proportion of pupils achieving the expected standard in the Year 1 phonics screening check has improved.

However, it remains below the national average.

Information about this school

The school is a much smaller than the average-sized primary school. The school is a voluntary aided Church of England school.

The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is much lower than the national average. No pupils speak English as an additional language. The majority of pupils attending the school are of White British heritage.

The proportion of pupils within each class, or children in the early years, with SEND is too small to report upon because it may identify individuals. A section 8 short inspection of the school, previously judged by Ofsted as good, was undertaken in May 2018. An external review of governance was undertaken as a result.
