Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress, especially in Key Stage 2; many exceed expectations, especially in mathematics and reading. By the time they leave most pupils have attained standards well in excess of the national average.

Pupils with disabilities or special educational needs are given good support to help them meet ambitious expectations. Pupils respond to the high expectations of teachers by behaving well and working hard. Pupils are happy and enjoy school and, as a result, absence is much lower than average.

Teaching and learning are good and some, especially in Key Stage 2, is outstanding. Teachers help pupils to enjoy learning by making ...lessons interesting. Leadership and management are good.

The headteacher has a good understanding of the relative strengths and development needs of teachers and works systematically to improve teaching. Governance is good, ensuring that the headteacher and staff are held to account and that the school is on a secure financial footing. It is not yet an outstanding school because : More needs to be done to bring progress in writing up to the high standards found in mathematics and reading.

Children in the Reception class are not given enough opportunities to learn through playing and exploring, especially outdoors. There are inconsistencies in the way that pupils' progress is assessed.

Information about this school

This is smaller than the average-sized primary school.

The proportions of pupils supported at school action, and at school action plus or with a statement of special educational need, are below average. The proportion known to be eligible for the pupil premium is also lower than average. There are currently no looked after children at the school and nearly all pupils are White British.

The school exceeds the current government floor standards, which set the minimum expectation for attainment and progress. A breakfast, after-school and holiday club, hosted by the adjacent nursery, is open to pupils from the school. It is not managed by the school's governing body and will be inspected separately.
