Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Achievement is good. From starting points which are below those typically expected for their age, pupils make good progress across the school and reach standards that are broadly average by the end of Year 6.

Most teaching is good and some is outstanding. Lessons are well planned and teachers expect pupils to do their best at all times. Behaviour is good in the classroom and around school.

Relationships between pupils and adults are very positive and, as a result, pupils work hard and want to do well. The school's work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding. Pupils, parents and staff agree that pupils feel safe and that they know to keep themselves safe.

The bright and vibrant displays around school and in all classrooms celebrate the high-quality work pupils produce and show the wide range of subjects they cover. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is well promoted by the school. The headteacher inspires her entire team to work well together for the good of the pupils.

As a result, considerable improvements in teaching, achievement, behaviour and attendance have been made since the previous inspection. Governors are very well informed and have an accurate view of the school's strengths and areas for development. They are not afraid to ask challenging questions and hold senior leaders to account.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : There is not enough outstanding teaching to increase progress rates further. Teachers do not always allow pupils to move on quickly with their work when they understand it, especially the most able. This slows their progress down.

In some lessons, pupils are not clear about what they have to do. Leaders collect information about pupils' progress but do not make full use of the range of evidence available to improve teaching further.

Information about this school

This school is larger than the average-sized primary school.

The Early Years Foundation Stage comprises of Nursery and two Reception classes. Less than half of the pupils are White British with the remaining pupils coming from a range of minority ethnic backgrounds, but predominantly Indian. Most pupils speak English at home as their first language.

A higher proportion of pupils leave and join the school other than at the normal time of entry. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also average.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for pupils in local authority care, children with a parent in the armed services and those known to be eligible to receive free school meals, is above average. The on-site breakfast club and after-school care are managed by a private provider and therefore inspected separately. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
