Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and governors have taken effective action to improve a previous two-year decline in pupils' achievement in English and mathematics at key stage 2.

Above-average attainment in the early years and key stage 1 has been sustained since the previous inspection. Teaching is good. It is most effective in key stage 1, where learning is adapted skilfully in response to teachers' assessment of pupils' understanding.

Strong leadership of individual subjects ensures that pupils make good progress. Pupils do well in physical education, geography, science, art, and design and technology. Pupils' behaviour is good and they know how to keep thems...elves safe.

Safeguarding is effective. It is a priority within a culture of shared responsibility for keeping pupils safe. Welfare requirements in the early years are met.

Strong relationships between staff and pupils lend confidence to pupils' enjoyment in learning as reflected in their above-average attendance. The curriculum provides extensive enrichment activities and promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well. Children in the early years are taught proficiently.

They make good progress in their learning and development, and are well prepared for the Year 1 curriculum. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Although pupils receive very clear guidance on how to improve their writing, the quality of feedback is less effective in mathematics. Leaders and governors gather a wealth of information about teaching and learning.

However, appraisal of this valuable information is too general to substantiate the root causes of identified weaknesses. Disadvantaged pupils' achievement is improving markedly but it is not a high enough priority in plans for improvement for each subject. Full report

Information about this school

The school is much larger than most primary schools.

Most pupils are of White British heritage. The majority of pupils join the school in Reception and stay throughout the primary phase of their education. The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals is below the national average.

The school meets the government's current national floor standards for pupils' progress and attainment. Information on the school's website does not meet requirements. Arrangements for admissions are not published, including those for pupils who have special educational needs or disability.

No information is available about pupils' progress from key stage 1 to key stage 2. The website does not provide a link to the national school and college performance tables. Much of the information for parents about the curriculum, events, clubs and activities is out of date.
