Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Hamp Nursery and Infants' School provides a good education for all its pupils. Teaching across the school is typically good and some is outstanding.

Both the indoor and outdoor environments are bright and stimulating and support pupils' personal, creative and physical development well. Outdoor play equipment offers pupils opportunities to develop their imagination. The high ratio of adults to pupils means that pupils have the individual help they need to make good rates of progress, both in class and in outdoor activities.

The headteacher, senior leaders and governors are all fully committed to driving continuous improvement throughout th...e school. Behaviour is good across the school. Pupils are polite and courteous at all times.

They value the rewards system that the school uses to help them achieve well in this aspect of their learning. Parents and carers speak positively about the different ways in which the school helps their children to learn well. The school has a calm, welcoming atmosphere that supports all pupils' engagement and learning.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching in mathematics, especially in Key Stage 1, does not consistently ensure that enough pupils attain and achieve in line with pupils of the same age nationally. Teachers do not always give all pupils enough opportunities to act upon their work once it has been marked.

Information about this school

This average-sized nursery and infants' school serves a relatively deprived area of the town.

Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils supported through the pupil premium, which is additional government funding for looked after children, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children of service families, is well above average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is well above the national average, as is the proportion of pupils supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs.

A separate children's centre nursery, managed by the school, is attached to the school site and currently has 82 children on roll, all below the age of three. Since the last inspection, the numbers of pupils transferring into the Early Years Foundation Stage from the children's centre have increased. This did not form part of this inspection.
