Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

The school has improved significantly since the last inspection and now provides an outstanding education for its pupils. The school is led by a deeply committed and highly effective headteacher who is very ably supported by senior and middle leaders and by the governors. Pupils in current year groups make outstanding progress in all subjects and attainment is above average.

Disadvantaged pupils make rapid progress as a result of the highly effective use of the additional funding to support these pupils. The most able pupils also make rapid progress and a number attain the very high National Curriculum Level 6 in national assessm...ents in writing and mathematics. Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make very good and sustained progress from their different starting points.

Their needs are accurately identified and support is quickly put in place. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding and their attitudes to learning are of a very high order. Pupils are very well-mannered and polite and warmly welcome visitors to their school.

The school's work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding. Pupils know how to keep themselves safe, particularly when using the internet. Teachers ensure that pupils develop a solid foundation especially in English and mathematics and they build on these basic skills year on year.

Teaching assistants know the pupils and their needs particularly well and are highly effective in their work with individuals and small groups. Pupils receive clear guidance from teachers about how they can improve their work, both through written comments and regular conversations. However, not all pupils respond to these suggestions.

The school curriculum provides many exciting experiences in the arts, sport and science. While there is an appropriate focus on English and mathematics, it is not to the detriment of other subjects, and the curriculum is enriched by a wide range of activities and after-school clubs. Children make good progress in the new early years provision.

The proportion of children ready for learning in Year 1 is rising. Teaching is good, but staff are not yet providing an environment that is as rich and stimulating as it could be for children to reach their very best potential. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is very strong.

Through a combination of lessons, assemblies and other activities pupils' personal development is of a high order. As a result, pupils are very well prepared for life in modern Britain.

Information about this school

This is a smaller than average-sized primary school.

The proportion of pupils who are disabled or have special educational needs is average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils, those supported by the pupil premium, is high, at approximately twice the national average. The pupil premium is additional government funding to support those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or those who are looked after by the local authority.

Most pupils are White British. In 2014, no pupils spoke English as an additional language. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics, by the end of Year 6.

Children attend the Nursery class on a part-time basis and the Reception class full-time. The school's early years provision opened since the last inspection and is a relatively new addition to the school. Plans for a new building for the early years are well on their way.
