Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The very large majority of pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium, additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and other groups, is similar to the national average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported at school action is below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also below average. The school meets the government’s floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils’ progress has improved and is now consistently good. Attainment at Key Stage 2 has risen and is above average. Children join the Early Years Foundation Stage with skills and knowledge well below those expected for their age. They are well taught and very well cared for and make outstanding progress which prepares them well for Year 1. Teaching is consistently good and some is outstanding. Displays are used well to support learning and pupils find them helpful. Pupils are proud to share their achievements in lessons. Pupils behave well around the school and are courteous and polite to adults and to each other. Pupils say that they feel safe in the school. The nurture provision provides pupils and their families with helpful support and also provides activities for pupils during the school holidays. The headteacher, well supported by other leaders, managers and governors has ensured that teaching and pupils’ achievement have improved so that they are now good. Governors have a good understanding of all aspects of the school and have been both supportive and challenging. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Sometimes teachers do not have high enough expectations of pupils’ work rate in lessons and in the presentation of their work in books. Teachers do not always make sure comments in books are used by pupils to improve their work.
