Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Pupils' attainment in national tests at the end of Year 6 in reading, writing and mathematics is higher than the national averages. The rate of progress pupils make between Year 2 and Year 6 has improved across the school in all subjects. Pupils enjoy reading.

They quickly develop their skills to read unfamiliar words when they join school. By the time they leave pupils read with fluency and expression. Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs make similar progress to other pupils in the school.

Pupils' attendance is high. The behaviour of the pupils in school is good. They work well together and with the adults ...in their classes.

Systems in the school make sure the pupils are kept safe and that they are well looked after. The headteacher, supported by the senior leaders and governors, is determined to improve the quality of teaching and achievement of pupils further. Lessons and activities support the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of pupils very effectively.

Pupils care about each other and enjoy working hard. The school is very inclusive and does not tolerate discrimination. It works to ensure all pupils have the opportunity to succeed.

The governing body provides good support to the school but holds senior leaders to account for how well the pupils achieve, especially those who are more vulnerable. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The achievement of children in the Reception class has declined over the last three years. This is particularly so for boys in writing and mathematics.

Pupils longer-term targets do not always help them know how to improve their mathematical understanding or their skills in writing.

Information about this school

The school is a smaller-than-average-sized primary school. All pupils attend full time.

Most pupils are from a White British background. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is below the national average. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is also below that seen nationally.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is lower than the national average. The proportion of pupils who are supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also lower than that found nationally. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium is low compared with that found in most schools.

This is funding provided to give extra support to those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and to children who are looked after. The headteacher works with the local authority to provide support to Heddington Church of England Primary School. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
