Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

It is a very friendly and welcoming place in which to learn. Pupils make good progress and achieve well throughout the school. As a result, the proportion of pupils attaining the expected level of attainment by the end of Year 6 in reading, writing and mathematics is above average.

Teaching is usually good and some is outstanding. Teachers have good subject knowledge and explain ideas clearly and confidently. Pupils' behaviour and their attitudes to learning are outstanding.

They say they feel very safe in school at all times. The curriculum promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development in an outstanding man...ner. The headteacher is ambitious for the school and has high expectations of all staff and pupils.

Leaders and governors have worked successfully to maintain and build upon the school's good performance at the previous inspection. There are effective procedures for checking the school's performance and for identifying areas for further development. Staff show high levels of respect and courtesy for pupils and others.

The governing body knows the school's strengths and weaknesses and is influential in helping it move forward. The ability of leaders and governors to carry on making improvements is good. It is not yet an outstanding school because: There is not enough outstanding teaching.

Pupils are not always given work that matches and challenges their ability. Teaching assistants are not always deployed effectively to promote pupils' learning. There are not enough opportunities for pupils to find things out for themselves.

Information about this school

Moore is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average.

There is a below average proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium. (The pupil premium provides additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children that are looked after.) Most pupils are of White British heritage.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set minimum expectations for attainment and progress in English and mathematics. There is a privately managed before-and after-school club which is inspected separately and the report published on the Ofsted website, www.ofsted. The school has gained a number of national awards, including Artsmark and Activemark, and holds Healthy School status.
