Key findings

This is a good school. It is not yet outstanding as the improved practices and rigorous analysis are relatively recent.

The school still has work to do to drive up standards further in writing and to enable more able learners in Key Stage 1 to achieve the higher levels of which they are capable. However, school leaders and the governing body demonstrate a strong capacity for sustaining school improvement. As a result of increasingly strong leadership and teamwork, the school has made rapid progress against the areas for improvement identified in the inspection which took place in February 2011.

In accordance with section 13 (5) of the Education Act 2005, Her Majesty's Chief Inspector is of the... opinion that the school no longer requires significant improvement. Accurate assessment has identified that the gaps in performance of different groups in the school are closing. The very large majority of pupils are making good progress and many are making accelerated progress.

Consequently, there is a rising trend in attainment. While pupils' attainment is above that of most pupils nationally, there are not enough pupils achieving the higher levels in writing and mathematics at the end of Key Stage 1. The teaching in all key stages, including in the Early Years Foundation Stage, is mostly good or better.

Reading and mathematics are both taught well. Competent leadership of teaching in core areas, including rigorous monitoring and staff development, is ensuring weaknesses are systematically being tackled and that writing remains a whole school focus. There remain some inconsistencies in writing and handwriting in non-literacy books and not enough pupils achieve the higher levels in writing.

Pupils are extremely well behaved in lessons and around the school. There is a happy atmosphere and pupils are highly supportive of each other. They are respectful to adults and understand how to conduct themselves safely.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength. It contributes effectively to building pupils' resilience and 'can do' attitudes to learning. Staff support pupils' wide-ranging needs well because they care about them as individuals.

They have worked hard to develop further close links with their families and the wider school community. The curriculum excites and enthuses pupils. There is a stimulating extended curriculum which includes a wide range of additional clubs and other special events.

Information about the school

This is a smaller-than-average sized primary school with a shared Nursery and Reception class. It serves the immediate and wider rural area. The majority of pupils are White British, with a small number from minority ethnic backgrounds and a few who are in the early stages of speaking English as an additional language.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is well below average. There are currently no pupils supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. All pupils are taught in mixed-age classes.

The school meets the government's current floor standards which are the minimum standards expected by the government. The school was last inspected in February 2011 when it was judged to require a notice to improve. Since then, the number of pupils on roll has reduced, there has been a new class teacher for Year 3/4 pupils from September 2011, and six new governors have joined the governing body.
