This is a much smaller than average-size primary school. Pupils are taught in three classes. Since the previous inspection a substantive headteacher took up post in January 2010.

The number of pupils on roll is increasing. In autumn 2010, the governing body took responsibility for the onsite pre-school for three and four year-olds and the children are now in a Nursery class with the reception children. This provision runs from Monday to Friday and is concurrent with school term dates.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is slightly below the national average. The proportion of pupils supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below the national average. The school meets the current floor standards which set the government's minimum expectations for attainment and progress.

A breakfast and after-school club run by the governing body operates on a daily basis. The school has been awarded the Investors in People and the Basic Skills Quality Mark. It also meets the Financial Management Standard in Schools.
