Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher is ambitious for the school and has a great determination to make further improvements; she is well supported by other school leaders and governors.

Children get off to a good start in the early years and settle in quickly as a result of caring staff and a well-organised learning environment. Teaching of the basic skills is thorough; pupils enjoy learning through the different curriculum themes. Standards have improved since the last inspection as a result of strong leadership.

All groups of pupils make good progress and standards are above average for some pupils. Governors are knowledgeable and provide a good level of su...pport and challenge to the school. Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning and feel safe at school; the school has robust systems in place to follow up absences and keep children safe.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Standards in writing are not as high as in reading and mathematics; some of the most-able pupils do not achieve as much as they could. There are not enough opportunities for pupils to write at length and use their basic skills in other subjects; the quality of handwriting and presentation in books is inconsistent. Sometimes teaching does not support pupils to understand how to improve their work; occasionally, the level of challenge is not well matched to pupils' abilities and work is too hard or too easy.

Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. However, the roll is rising and the number of pupils joining the school, other than in the early years, is above average. Nursery provision is mainly part time, but there is some flexibility for full-time attendance.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils for whom the pupil premium provides support is lower than average. The pupil premium is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and looked after children. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is below average.

The proportion of pupils whose first language is not English is above average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress by the end of Year 6. The headteacher is a local leader in education and as such has provided support in other local schools.
