Information about this school

This junior school is of similar size to an average sized primary school. Since the last inspection almost all members of the governing body have changed and there is a new Chair of Governors. The proportions of disabled pupils, those with a statement of special educational needs or those who need extra support at school action plus, are above the national average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action is below the national average. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or in the care of the local authority, for whom the school receives additional income (the pupil premium), is below average. The large majority of pupils are White British. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils’ skills in English and mathematics are above average. They make good progress in reading and writing. The proportion of pupils reaching high standards in mathematics is above average. Pupils show outstanding attitudes to learning and want to succeed. Their behaviour is exemplary both in lessons and around the school. They feel very safe at school. The headteacher and deputy headteacher are bringing about improvements with enthusiasm and determination. Their actions to improve teaching have been successful. Teachers have high expectations of pupils. Most lessons interest the pupils and help them to learn well. Governors are very knowledgeable about all aspects of the school. They are clear about what is needed to continue to improve the school. Attendance is high. Parents are extremely positive about the school. They praise the quality of teaching and care that the school provides. It is not yet an outstanding school because : There is still a small minority of teaching that requires improvement. For example, at times pupils spend too much time listening to teachers and this limits the time they have to take an active part in the lesson. The quality of feedback in lessons and of marking in books is not always clear enough. Pupils who need extra help in mathematics do not always make as much progress as they should. This is because their work is not always set at the right level. Leaders and managers do not yet effectively check or manage the performance of those staff without qualified teacher status who support learning.
