Information about this school

This school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils supported through the pupil premium, which is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority, is below the national average. There are no pupils looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs is below the national average. The school meets the government’s current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The acting deputy headteacher was appointed as headteacher at the start of this term. The governors have appointed a teacher as acting deputy headteacher for one year. Provision for early years is full time.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils are taught well, helping them to make good progress in lessons and over time. Achievement is good. By the end of Year 6 some pupils make outstanding progress, given their starting points. The provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage is good. It is improving rapidly as a result of the drive to meet each child’s needs. Outstanding behaviour contributes to the positive and inclusive ethos that permeates all aspects of the school’s work. Pupils feel safe and look out for each other. The headteacher’s outstanding leadership inspires staff and pupils to do their very best. His commitment to helping everybody succeed is a significant factor in the improved teaching and achievement since the last inspection. Leadership and management are good. School leaders consult widely and act decisively. School improvement planning is aimed at where it can have most impact in the shortest time. Governors are focused and influential. They regularly check up on what is happening in school. They challenge leaders to raise the quality of teaching and achievement further. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Outdoor activities in the Early Years Foundation Stage are not organised well to make the most of the small outdoor area. Some teaching does not provide sufficient challenge for more able pupils.
