Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Pupils' achievement is good from their starting points and some pupils make rapid progress during their time in school.

The quality of teaching is good and pupils respond with enthusiasm and independence to the challenges set them. The encouragement and support from teaching assistants contribute greatly to the exceptional achievement of pupils who are disabled or have special educational needs. Pupils behave well and feel safe.

Every young child has an older pupil mentor and this helps the school to be a very harmonious place. There are an exceptional number of opportunities for pupils to gain sporting and artistic skills both in and out... of lessons. This helps pupils develop excellent spiritual, moral, social and cultural values.

Leaders and governors have consolidated on the strengths of the school since the previous inspection and brought about further improvement. Leaders monitor teaching frequently and give teachers effective guidance on how to improve. The impact of this can be seen especially in improvements in pupils' writing skills.

Governors are aspirational for the school and are working not just with school leaders but with the pupils' school council to bring about improvements. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers do not always provide pupils with sufficient opportunities to find out things for themselves and explore their own ideas. The school does not always make the best use of school data to help teachers to plan to meet the needs of all pupils.

Information about this school

This is a school of average size with a very low proportion of children entitled to extra support through the pupil premium (additional money allocated to schools by the government). Almost all the pupils are of White British heritage and speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils identified as disabled and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is average.

The proportion of pupils 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. None of its pupils is taught in alternative provision.
