Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress. Their progress is improving because teaching is good.

Pupils behave well. Past unacceptable behaviour has decreased, and the school has good procedures to encourage pupils to behave well. Pupils enjoy learning.

They feel safe and say that, although there was some bullying in the past, it is very rare now. The school has a very good idea of where it has weaknesses and acts fast to deal with them. The headteacher, governing body and other leaders provide clear guidance on how the school should improve.

They provide good professional training for teachers to improve their teaching skills. It is not yet an... outstanding school because : Teachers do not always make sure that pupils write neatly and spell accurately. Marking does not always give clear information to pupils about how well they are doing, or show that teachers have checked that pupils follow the advice they are given on how to improve their work.

Occasionally, the timing of activities in lessons means that pupils do not settle quickly enough to their own work. It sometimes means that the ends of lessons are too rushed, with the result that pupils' learning is not consolidated well enough.

Information about this school

The school is larger than most primary schools.

Pupils come from mainly White British backgrounds. No pupils are at the early stages of learning English. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is broadly average.

The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational need is also broadly average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (addition funds given to the school by the government for children looked after by the local authority or known to be eligible for free school meals) is broadly average. The school includes specially resourced provision for pupils with special educational needs.

It manages a local authority unit for pupils with hearing impairment. It can take up to six pupils, but currently has fewer than this. All pupils are educated on site.

The school does not use alternative provision to support any of its pupils. The school has experienced several changes of headteacher since the last inspection, but the current headteacher has been in post for two years. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' progress and attainment in English and mathematics.
