Key findings

This is a good school. The new headteacher has made an excellent start, well supported by the deputy headteacher, staff and governing body. As a result, there has been a seamless transition which has not interrupted the good progress that the school has made in addressing identified weaknesses.

The behaviour and safety of pupils are good. Pupils enjoy school and say that misbehaviour is uncommon. There is a strong emphasis on pupils' personal development which gives them confidence to move to their next stage of education.

Achievement is good in the Early Years Foundation Stage and in Key Stage 2 where pupils make good progress. At Key Stage 1, progress is not as strong in mathematics as in re...ading and writing. By Year 6, the vast majority of pupils attain levels well above the national average, with a high proportion attaining the higher Level 5 in English and mathematics.

Teaching is usually good and sometimes outstanding. It is good in the Early Years Foundation Stage where provision has much improved and in Key Stage 2. Teaching in Key Stage 1 is improving with an increasing number of good lessons but it is not yet consistent enough to ensure that all pupils make good progress year on year in mathematics.

Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs make good progress. Leaders rigorously monitor the work of the school and make good use of data to plan its strategic development. Senior leaders know the school's strengths and weaknesses well.

They have used rigorous assessment systems to improve the quality of teaching and target further improvements. The curriculum is successfully meeting the needs of all pupils and some aspects, such as the way in which it is enriched, are outstanding.

Information about the school

Lapworth is a smaller than average-sized primary school located in the centre of the village.

Most of the pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below the national average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is also below average.

The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of one Reception class and other pupils are taught in mixed-aged classes. There have been considerable changes in staffing since the previous inspection. The new headteacher was appointed in September 2011.

The school meets the current floor standard, which sets the government's minimum expectations for attainment and progress. The school has received a number of awards including National Heathy Schools status, the Eco-School bronze award and the Primary Science Quality Mark. There is a privately run pre-school on site which is subject to separate reporting and inspection arrangements.
