Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. In recent years, senior leaders have successfully encouraged pupils to be more ambitious. With the full support of parents and carers, pupils have lifted their efforts.

They now achieve above average standards and are keen to do even better. Good and often outstanding teaching makes sure that achievement through the school is good. Excellent teaching in Years 5 and 6 combines challenge with fun in learning and promotes even better progress.

The teaching of reading is a strength of the school, which, with help from parents and carers, continues productively at home. Teachers and their capable assistants provide high-quality care. As a res...ult, pupils feel safe, behave extremely well and enjoy excellent relationships, when learning together.

The school provides a stimulating curriculum that keeps pupils interested and involved in their learning. Literacy and numeracy skills are taught effectively and reinforced through other subjects. The headteacher, supported by senior colleagues and the governing body, checks the quality of teaching and learning carefully and ensures that necessary improvements are made.

Achievement continues to improve, most recently in pupils' writing skills. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils are not always given enough opportunities to start their own learning or to find things out for themselves. In Reception, adults do not always question children enough when the children are busy with activities they have chosen themselves.

Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are taught in a Reception class. Pupils are taught in mixed-age classes throughout the rest of the school.

The school runs its own breakfast club. A privately funded preschool facility operates on the school site and shares some of the school's facilities; as it is managed independently, it was not part of this inspection. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
