Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school 'This school has come on in leaps and bounds since the last inspection,' was how one parent put it.

Inspectors agree. Standards in English and mathematics are much higher than they were previously because leaders and teachers have lifted the quality of teaching. Pupils' attitudes to learning have transformed.

They are excellent ambassadors for the school. Across all classes, pupils enjoy school and rarely miss it for any reason. The headteacher is a passionate educator.

She is very clear about how improvements can still be made and why. She has earned the confidence of pupils, parents, staff and governors, who are overwhelmingly ...positive about the school. The knowledgeable, enthusiastic and effective team of teachers make the pupils work hard.

They are keen to find ways that they can improve and make the school even better. Children are quickly fired up by the rich experiences in the excellent early years provision. They make significant strides in their learning.

Pupils gain a genuine love of books and make excellent progress with their reading. Pupils that fall behind their peers catch up quickly. The number of most-able pupils that do better than other pupils their age nationally has grown.

Pupils are highly respectful of each other and report that they feel safe in school. They develop a strong understanding of how to keep themselves safe, particularly when using electronic devices and the internet. Staff provide pupils with a wealth of rich and varied learning experiences.

Teachers take care to make learning meaningful to pupils' lives and experiences. Governance is effective and has improved markedly. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Although teaching is good, some teachers are not as highly skilled as others.

Leaders' checks of individual pupils' outcomes are not used sharply enough to analyse how well different groups of pupils are doing and to measure how well actions to promote improvement are working.

Information about this school

Farley Hill is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The school meets the government's current floor standards.

These set the minimum expectations of pupils' attainment and progress. Very few pupils are known to be eligible for pupil premium funding. This is additional funding allocated for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals.

The proportion of pupils identified as having special educational needs or disability is much lower than the national average. The school operates a before school 'drop-off' club for pupils. The on-site after-school provision is not managed by the governing body and did not form part of this inspection.
