Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good and sometimes outstanding progress from their average starting points. By the time they leave school at the end of Year 6, pupils reach standards that are consistently above those expected for their age.

Teaching is good overall, with a little that is outstanding. Teachers are enthusiastic and plan activities that inspire pupils to learn well. Very well planned teaching of reading ensures that pupils achieve particularly well in reading in all key stages.

Pupils display exemplary attitudes to learning, participating enthusiastically in lessons and working with great diligence. Pupils feel very safe and have a well-develo...ped understanding of how to keep safe at all times. Leaders and governors are improving the school effectively.

This is because they know the school well and as a result identify accurately the key priorities for further improvement. Their efforts have ensured that pupils' behaviour is outstanding and that their achievement and the quality of teaching are securely good. The curriculum offers pupils a broad range of enjoyable opportunities and experiences.

It prepares them well for the next stage of their education and promotes good spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It is not yet an outstanding school because : A few lessons require improvement and not enough teaching is outstanding. More-able pupils are not always given work that challenges them to do their best and the youngest children could write more often.

Consequently, not all pupils make the rapid progress of which they are capable, especially in writing. Teachers' marking does not always tell pupils how to improve their work. Pupils do not routinely edit and correct their work.

Occasionally, teaching assistants do not support learning effectively throughout lessons. Leaders do not check frequently enough on how planned improvement actions are impacting on the progress of all pupils.

Information about this school

This is a much larger than average-sized primary school.

A well below-average proportion of pupils are supported by the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children who are looked after by the local authority and the children of service families). The proportion of pupils supported through school action is well-below average. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is average.

An average proportion of pupils come from minority ethnic backgrounds. The school's governing body manages a range of activities in after school clubs. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
