This is a good school. Pupils make good progress and achieve well. Achievement in reading is a particular strength.
Teachers and learning support assistants have high expectations for what pupils can achieve, and provide a good level of challenge and support. A wide variety of practical first-hand experiences enrich pupils' learning in subjects such as music, history and information and communication technology. Pupils behave exceptionally well and have very positive attitudes towards their learning.
Good leadership, including from the governing body, has led to clear improvement since the last inspection. Particularly good personal care for pupils and their f...amilies makes sure that all feel included and safe. Attendance has risen since the last inspection, and is now above the national average.
It is not yet an outstanding school because : Progress is not as rapid in mathematics as in English. The teaching of aspects such as mental arithmetic is not always demanding enough, and the action plans in mathematics do not show clearly how improvements will be made and checked. Pupils do not have enough opportunities to check their own work, or respond to teachers' marking.
Subject leaders do not focus enough on the quality of pupils' learning when checking lessons in their subjects.
Information about this school
Hallow CofE Primary is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportions of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action, and at school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs, are below average.
The proportions of pupils from minority ethnic groups and those who speak English as an additional language are both below national averages. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium, which is extra government funding for particular groups, including pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, and is well below the national average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
The school provides before- and after-school clubs for pupils. Since the last inspection the school has formed a partnership with another school, which means that the headteacher now oversees both schools. The school does not use any alternative off-site provision for any pupils.
