Information about this school

This is a smaller-than-average primary school. Almost all pupils come from minority ethnic backgrounds and the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well above average. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils who are in the care of the local authority, known to be eligible for free school meals or have a parent in the armed services) is well above average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is average, but the proportion supported at school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs is well above average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress in English through all parts of the school. Almost all the pupils leaving Year 6 in 2012 met or exceeded expectations for their progress during Key Stage 2. Pupils’ attainment at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 has been low for some time, but the school’s own data shows them to be on course to reach national averages for English and mathematics in 2013. Teaching is consistently at least good throughout the school, and some is outstanding. Teachers plan lessons that are well matched to pupils’ abilities. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary, both in lessons and around the school. They take an active part in supporting one another and preventing bullying. They have a love of learning that is clear from their approach to lessons. The school’s leaders have continued to improve the school since the last inspection. Teaching and pupils’ achievement have been improved as a result of decisive action by the headteacher and the senior team, supported by the governors. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils’ progress in mathematics in Years 3, 4 and 5 is not as good as in other years because they do not have enough opportunities to talk and write about their work using mathematical language. Occasionally teaching does not use the most inspiring and motivating activities to ensure all pupils make as much progress as possible. Some teachers’ marking does not give pupils precise information about how to improve their work. Pupils are not given enough time to reflect on, or respond to, teachers’ comments about their work.
