Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The headteacher, deputy headteacher and governors have worked tirelessly to improve the school since the last inspection and their efforts are proving successful. They fully understand what needs to be done to continue this improvement. Right from their first days in Nursery, most pupils make good progress as they move through the school.

Standards at the end of Year 6 are broadly in line with the national average and are improving. Teachers have high expectations and pupils enjoy the challenge and work hard. The school provides pupils with a very safe environment.

Pupils' behaviour is good overall, their attitudes to learning a...re excellent and they behave extremely well in and around the school. Improved assessment and precise extra support help disabled pupils and those with special educational needs to make good progress in line with other pupils in the school. Rigorous monitoring, coupled with appropriate training for teachers, has been instrumental in rapidly improving the quality of teaching.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : The excellent marking and feedback to pupils in some year groups are not applied consistently in every class. Opportunities for pupils to respond to the marking and improve or correct their work are not frequent enough in some classes. Some of the goals set for pupils are not precise enough; as a result, pupils cannot always easily see if they have achieved them.

Information about this school

Godstone Village Primary is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The school manages a breakfast and after-school club. Both were visited during the inspection.

The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils in local authority care, from armed forces families or those known to be eligible for free school meals) is lower than average. Most pupils are of White British heritage. There is a small minority of Gypsy/Roma pupils.

The proportion of pupils who are supported through school action is average, as is the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The school meets the government's current floor standard which sets the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. There is no alternative provision.
