Information about this school

This is an average-sized primary school. Most pupils are of White British and other White backgrounds. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is average. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium, which in this school provides additional funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, is well above average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is above average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of educational needs is average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6. The Early Years Foundation Stage comprises a Nursery, which children attend in the mornings, and a Reception class. There is privately-run before and after-school childcare. As these facilities are not managed by the school’s governing body, they are subject to separate inspection.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Actions taken by leaders, including governors, have led to rapid improvement since the previous inspection. Pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Teaching is good. Staff have high expectations of pupils and make good use of questions to check their learning. Teaching assistants play a major role in helping pupils to learn successfully. Behaviour is good and pupils say they feel safe. The school is a harmonious place where pupils and staff feel valued. Training given to staff meets their needs and those of the school well, with positive effect on improving teaching and raising achievement. Good use is made of partnerships with local schools and the community to benefit staff and pupils. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Standards in mathematics are not as high as they are in reading and writing. Teachers do not consistently help pupils to improve when they mark their mathematics work. Pupils do not have enough opportunities to use mathematics in other subjects. They do not know number facts well enough. Not all leaders are fully involved in checking the quality of teaching and learning. Systems used by leaders to check the quality of teaching and learning do not always focus sharply enough on how well the more-able pupils are doing.
