Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Pupils' attainment at the end of Year 6 has been high for a number of years. Pupils' attainment at the end of Year 2 in reading, writing and mathematics is above that seen nationally. More-able pupils are set harder work, so they can make rapid progress from their starting points and achieve the highest levels.

Teaching has been very effective in motivating and engaging pupils, and has enabled them to make excellent progress from their starting points. Pupils say they feel very safe and very well looked after. Behaviour in the school is excellent and makes an outstanding contribution to pupils' learning.

George Fentham E...ndowed School is committed to equal opportunities and succeeds in its determination for all pupils to achieve well. The school is very well led by the headteacher who has a wealth of experience working in the school and has a very good understanding of its strengths and areas that can be developed further. The school's leadership team works very well and makes a strong impact.

The governing body is very supportive, yet holds the school to account for the progress of all the pupils. The school's values and beliefs are shared with the pupils and these contribute to pupils' excellent spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. School leaders, including governors, have worked well to improve the quality of teaching and raise pupils' achievement since the last inspection.

They have sustained pupils' high attainment over a number of years and are committed to developing the quality of teaching further. Pupils are very well prepared to move on to secondary school.

Information about this school

George Fentham Endowed School is smaller than the average-sized primary school.

Pupils attend from the village and the surrounding area. The Early Years Foundation Stage caters for Nursery-aged and Reception-aged children. Most pupils are White British.

There are a few pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds, including a few from Traveller families attending the school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average, as is the proportion supported through school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding, which in this school supports pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is below average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics. The school works in a collaborative partnership with local rural primary schools, and has links to local secondary schools. There was significant disruption to staffing in the last few years, including the long-term absence of several teachers, which affected Key Stage 1 and 2.

Staffing has been much more settled in the last year. There is before- and after-school and wrap-around nursery provision on the school site. It is not managed by the governing body, and did not form part of this inspection.
