Information about this school

This is a smaller than average-sized primary school. The majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is below the national average. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium is below the national average. This is additional government funding to give extra support to those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and to children who are looked after. In 2014 the school met the government’s current floor standards which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The school has a full-time pre-school Nursery on site that is managed by the governing body. The Reception class is also full time. The extended school provision includes a Breakfast Club and after-school activities. The school holds the International Schools’ Award and is an accredited Rights Respecting school. In 2014 the school earned the National accreditation for Outdoor Learning.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Pupils achieve well in reading, writing and mathematics across the school. Standards are well above average in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. Teaching is consistently good in all parts of the school and this helps pupils to achieve well. Pupils feel safe and behave well. School values and beliefs are important and support pupils’ understanding of right and wrong. There is a strong link between the pre-school Nursery and the Reception class. This means that children’s needs are well understood so that they benefit from appropriate support in their development. The headteacher, school leaders and governors all work together constantly to improve all aspects of the school’s work. Parents, carers and staff are highly positive about the school and all it does for all pupils. Pupils’ participation in a wide range of competitive sports contributes successfully to their well-being and preparation for the next stage of their education. Pupils are enthusiastic and positive learners who appreciate all the help adults provide. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The most able pupils at Key Stage 1 do not always achieve at the highest levels. Subject leaders are not as involved as they could be in raising standards further.
