Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils make exceptionally rapid progress throughout their time in school. Standards are above average by the time children leave the Reception class, and rise to well above average by Year 6.

Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make very rapid progress because they receive skilled help and guidance at just the right level for their individual needs. Teaching is of a consistently high standard, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics, where pupils excel. Just occasionally teachers over direct pupils when they are capable of taking more responsibility for shaping their own learning.

Outside is used well to boost pupils' learning in science, music and physical education. Pupils' behaviour is typically exemplary and they support one another extremely well. The school has a vibrant family atmosphere.

Pupils enjoy the many various activities on offer and feel very safe and well cared for. The headteacher provides very clear, strong leadership but also involves all other staff closely in a relentless quest to continue raising standards. The governors contribute very effectively to school improvement.

Their very thorough checking of teachers' performance ensures that salary increases are closely linked to pupils' achievements. The school develops pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness exceptionally well.

Information about this school

Ilmington is a small rural primary school serving the village and surrounding area.

Nearly all the pupils are from White British backgrounds and all speak English as their first language. Very few pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium. This provides additional funding for looked-after children, pupils from families eligible for free school meals and those from families with parents in the armed forces.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is broadly average compared to other primary schools, whether supported at school action, school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs. The school has a 'forest-school' area to help pupils explore the natural environment. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
