Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils' achievement is good because they make good progress throughout the school.

By the end of Year 6, their attainment is above average. This year more pupils are set to achieve the higher levels in mathematics and writing than in previous years. The large majority of teaching is good and some is outstanding.

Teachers provide excellent suggestions for pupils to improve their work in English and mathematics. As a result, pupils' skills in writing and mathematics have improved. Teaching assistants provide high quality support for pupils' learning in class and for small groups of pupils outside the classroom.

This is the result ...of the high quality training they receive. Pupils behave well and have positive attitudes to learning. They feel safe in school and enjoy school.

Attendance is above average. Leaders and managers use a range of information to check the progress made by all pupils. They take effective actions to ensure that pupils do not fall behind in their learning.

Leaders, managers and governors have developed a strong sense of purpose amongst all staff to drive the school forward. This contributes well to ensuring good teaching and achievement. As a result, pupils are well prepared for the next stage of their education.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : There is not enough outstanding teaching and a small amount still requires improvement. In some lessons, checks made on the progress of all groups of pupils are not carried out often enough. There are not enough opportunities for pupils to use their mathematical skills when working in other subjects.

Occasionally, teaching does not provide enough challenge for the most able pupils to reach the highest levels in both English and mathematics. When leaders and managers plan improvements, they are not always clear about how they will recognise whether their actions have been successful in improving the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement.

Information about this school

This school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school.

The number of pupils in each year group is small. Very few pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding provided for children in local authority care, those from armed services families, and those known to be eligible for free school meals). Almost all pupils are White British.

With very few exceptions, pupils speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is above average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average.

The school meets the government's current floor standard, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The school holds the Activemark Gold award, Healthy School status and the Artsmark Bronze award. The headteacher was appointed in April 2012.
