Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school because: Achievement has improved significantly since the last inspection. It is now good and all groups of pupils make good progress. Pupils do well in reading, writing and mathematics.

Teaching is good. Lessons are lively and follow an interesting curriculum. Lessons meet the needs of individuals and give them the confidence to learn.

Good support for disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, those known to be eligible for pupil premium and pupils with English as an additional language ensures their good achievement. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are well prepared for their future education. Staff effectiv...ely assess the needs of each pupil.

When a pupil could do better, good levels of guidance are offered to help them. Behaviour is good and pupils are polite and caring. Pupils feel safe and bullying is rare and managed very well.

The senior leaders and governors share a high ambition for the school. Good management of teachers constantly develops their skills. This has a positive impact on achievement and pupils' learning.

The school has a good capacity to continue to improve in future. It is not yet an outstanding school because: Pupils do not deepen their understanding of basic mathematical skills through problem solving and investigations. A few older pupils in Key Stage 2 do not do as well as they should in aspects of grammar, spelling and handwriting.

Occasionally teaching assistants do not engage enough with pupils to promote the best possible learning.

Information about this school

This is a larger than average-sized primary school. The percentage of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is above average and includes an above average proportion of children who are looked after.

A higher than average percentage of pupils are supported by school action. This is also the case for the percentage of pupils receiving support for school action plus or with a statement of special educational need. Just under a third of pupils are from a minority ethnic group which is higher than average.

The percentage of pupils for whom English is an additional language is above average. There is a higher than average rate of pupils joining and leaving the school at times other than the start of Early Years Foundation Stage and the departure at the end of Year 6. The school meets the government's floor standard, which is the minimum expected for pupils' attainment and progress.
