The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups and pupils who speak English as an additional language is below average.

Early years provision is part time in the Nursery and full time in Reception. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum standards expected nationally for pupils’ attainment and progress. The headteacher was appointed in September 2013. The school provides a breakfast club and out-of-school club.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress and achieve well in reading, writing and mathematics. Teaching is consistently good throughout the school and some is outstanding. Other adults make a substantial contribution to pupils’ learning. Children in Nursery and Reception classes make a good start in their writing and understanding of number. They quickly develop skills that allow them to play together and become confident learners. Pupils are enthusiastic and keen learners who behave well in lessons and around the school. Procedures to ensure that pupils are safe are outstanding. As a result, pupils feel very safe and very well looked after by staff. School leaders and managers have a good understanding of the strengths of the school and what needs to be improved further. They have brought about improvements in the quality of teaching. Governors know the school well and are committed to the success of every pupil. They provide effective challenge and support making sure the school continues to improve. The school promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Occasionally some pupils, especially the most able, are given insufficient challenge in lessons. Standards in Year 1 phonics (letters and the sounds they make) dipped in 2014. Pupils do not have sufficient reading activities across subjects to further develop their skills in reading. The roles of subject leaders in monitoring and improving the work of their areas of responsibility are not yet fully developed.
