Information about this school

This school is larger than the average-sized primary school. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage. A lower than average proportion of pupils are disadvantaged. These pupils are supported through the pupil premium funding, which is additional government funding provided to support pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is below average. Children enter the school in Nursery on a part-time basis and then move into the Reception class on a full-time basis. The school is supported by the local authority and by Greetlands Primary School, which is a national support school. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. The school meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. Ofsted_Logo_Black_RGB

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an inadequate school In key stage 1, teaching does not meet the needs of different groups of pupils and there is a significant lack of challenge. The progress of all groups of pupils is inadequate. In key stage 2, teaching does not meet the needs of boys. Boys make much weaker progress than girls, although girls’ progress is not good. The provision for disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is ineffective. These pupils do not make sufficient progress. Boys commonly have negative attitudes to learning, are often disengaged and do not complete work. This can go unchallenged by staff. The attendance of pupils has declined significantly in the past 12 months and it is now below average. This has particularly been the case for disadvantaged pupils. Leaders have not addressed the points to improve from the previous inspection. This has led to a deterioration in the overall quality of teaching. Governors are not fully aware of matters in school, including the safety and progress of pupils and the quality of teaching. This means that they are in no position to challenge leaders. The safeguarding of pupils is not effective. Leaders do not record all issues reported to them and therefore do not follow their own protocols to ensure that issues are fully investigated and that the concerns of pupils, parents and carers are addressed. The school has the following strengths Pupils’ progress in phonics (the sounds that letters represent) has improved well. The sports funding has been used well and has led to improvements in pupils’ participation in sports. In early years, children make good progress and arrive well prepared for learning in Year 1.
