Key findings

This is a good school that serves its local community well.

All pupils are valued, known as individuals and enjoy themselves in the school's safe and caring environment. Behaviour in lessons and around the school is good and pupils understand clearly how to keep themselves safe. Achievement is good.

Children get off to a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Progress through Years 1 and 2 is good. Pupils' attainment in teacher assessments at the end of Year 2 is above average in reading, writing and mathematics.

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities make similar good progress from their starting points. Teaching is good. Planning ensures that work is well... matched to pupils' learning needs.

Additional adults contribute well to pupils' learning in lessons. There are a few inconsistencies in the use of personalised targets, marking and feedback on pupils' work which occasionally restrict their ability to improve their progress further. Well-planned topic themes foster pupils' positive attitudes to learning and ensure they make good gains in their basic skills across the curriculum.

The teaching of joined-up handwriting to support pupils in presenting their work neatly is not always as rigorous as it should be. All pupils appreciate opportunities to take part in extra-curricular clubs with pupils from the partner schools. Pupils in Years 1 and 2 benefit from joint lessons with pupils from the partner infant school in science, physical education and at the forest school outdoor site.

Consequently, they enjoy friendships across the partner schools, promoting their good social skills and preparing them well for transition to the partner junior school. The school is well led and managed. Leaders, managers and members of the governing body have worked with determination to successfully improve teaching and other provision.

Information about the school

This is a smaller-than-average-infant school with Early Years Foundation Stage children in one Reception class, and one class for pupils in Years 1 and 2. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is below average. There is a below average proportion of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities.

No pupils are currently known to be eligible for free school meals. None of the pupils speaks English as an additional language. There have been a number of staff changes over recent years.

The school works in an informal collaboration with two other local schools under one headteacher. The three schools have separate governing bodies which have agreed to work together in partnership. Mursley Kingfishers Pre-school has been managed by Mursley Church of England School since May 2011 and is the subject of a separate inspection.
