Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage achieve well so that most attain above the levels expected for their age by the time they enter Year 1.

Pupils of all abilities make good progress during their time at the school. By the time they leave, standards are well above average in reading, and above average in writing. Teaching is almost always good, and occasionally outstanding.

Pupils are usually stretched by the work set, particularly in literacy lessons. Pupils behave well. They take responsibility for helping those younger than themselves, regularly and enthusiastically helping out at the 'forest school', for example.

Pu...pils enjoy coming to school and are eager to take part in all that the school offers, so their attendance is improving. Good quality leadership and management ensures that the school runs smoothly and has brought about improvements in teaching. The headteacher, ably supported by staff and governors, has created a safe and caring school in which all pupils flourish.

The school provides some exciting opportunities that promote pupils' good spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. There are good relationships with parents and carers, and strong links with local schools and the church. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Achievement in mathematics is not as strong as in reading and writing.

In a few lessons teachers do not plan mathematical tasks at just the right level of difficulty to match pupils' ability. Pupils' listening skills are not as well developed as their speaking skills, and as a result some pupils do not listen carefully to questions or hear what they need to do next.
