Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The executive headteacher has swiftly put into place a culture of high expectations centred around a caring and nurturing school community. Pupils' outcomes in reading and writing declined in 2017. Improved teaching and precise assessment have led to improved provisional results in 2018.

Teachers' careful planning and high expectations mean that pupils learn well. As a result, pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Staff are well trained in safeguarding.

As a result, pupils feel safe and staff are vigilant in ensuring that detailed school policies are followed. The curriculum is broad and varied. However, pupils do... not do as well in other curriculum subjects compared to their attainment in reading, writing and mathematics.

Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent. Consequently, pupils develop well socially and academically. Attendance has improved over the past year.

In 2017, too many pupils were persistently absent. Leaders' actions have ensured that few pupils now miss school regularly. Children make strong progress in the early years foundation stage.

Precise assessment and good teaching mean that children are well prepared to enter Year 1. The Village Schools Federation provides useful opportunities for pupils to work with pupils from other schools within the federation, thus widening their experiences. Staff value the training that the federation provides.

Pupils behave very well in lessons and during social times. They cooperate enthusiastically and behave respectfully towards each other and staff. Governors are determined to uphold high standards.

However, they do not use pupils' progress information well enough when challenging leaders.
