Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The headteacher, who is well supported by the staff and governors, has provided strong leadership, resulting in improvements to teaching and pupils' achievement. Teaching is typically good throughout the school and teachers are successful in engaging pupils' interest and helping them to make good progress in their work. Pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics to reach standards that are usually above average by the time they leave the school.

The attainment of pupils eligible for support through the pupil premium (mainly those eligible for free school meals) is above that of all pupils nationally. Disabled pupils an...d those who have special educational needs are supported to achieve well. Pupils behave extremely well.

They enjoy school, try hard and want to do well. They have excellent attitudes to learning. Attendance is high and reflects pupils' enjoyment of school.

Relationships across the school are very positive and adults make excellent role models. The pastoral care provided for pupils is strong and pupils respond very well to this support, which is a key factor in their good progress. It is not yet an outstanding school because : In a minority of lessons, teachers do not always move pupils forward quickly enough in learning.

This means that the pace occasionally slows. Teachers do not consistently apply the school's marking and feedback policy and pupils are not always given the opportunity to respond to teachers' advice.

Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (which provides additional funding for pupils in local authority care, those known to be eligible for free school meals or from service families) is below average. The large majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is average.

The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. Pupils are taught in three mixed-age classes. Pupils leave the school at the end of Year 5 so government floor standards do not apply.
