Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The headteacher leads by example in the classroom and works closely with other staff to continually improve teaching and learning.

Pupils have opportunities to voice their opinions about school life and are proud of their contribution to the school's improvement. Pupils of all ages make good progress and, by the time they leave the school, most pupils reach standards that are above those expected for their age. Pupils feel safe and secure because they are taught how to keep themselves safe and how to manage risky situations.

Teachers ensure that the pupils are clear about what they need to do next. They help pupils to support each other ...in improving their work. Their marking is consistently good.

The school has worked closely with outside agencies and parents so that levels of attendance and punctuality have improved. In lessons, most pupils apply themselves well and work hard. They work together well which makes the atmosphere in school positive and harmonious.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : The large teaching commitment of the headteacher means that there is little time for the headteacher to visit and work with other schools. In some lessons, the work is it too easy for some pupils and too hard for others. Occasionally, some pupils have difficulty sustaining concentration and become distracted which slows their learning.

Information about this school

The school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. Numbers in each year group are sometimes very low, for instance, there were only four pupils in Year 6 in 2013. Pupils are taught in three mixed-age classes each morning, one for children from the Early Years Foundation Stage and pupils from Key Stage 1, and two for pupils in Key Stage 2.

In the afternoons the two Key Stage 2 classes are taught together. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium, which in this school provides funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, is well below average. Most pupils are of White British origin and, in 2013, all pupils spoke English as their first language.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is smaller than average. The proportion of pupils who are supported at school action plus is above average. There are no pupils with a statement of special educational needs.
