The proportion of children achieving a good level of development in the early years is similar to the national figure and rising. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Overall the progress that pupils make in writing is not yet as strong as the progress they make in reading and mathematics.

Information about this school

Much Woolton is larger than the average-sized primary school.

The large majority of pupils come from White British backgrounds, with few pupils who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium is well below average. The pupil premium supports pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is below average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. Many new teachers have been appointed since the previous inspection.
