Main findings

This is a good school. Pupils thrive and thoroughly enjoy their education, and this is shown in their excellent attendance.

They achieve well and make good progress with no significant difference between boys' and girls' attainment. Staff link subjects together well. In a Key Stage 2 class for example, pupils studied the differences and similarities in techniques between two different artists in their work in art and then applied their mathematics skills by recording these in a mathematical diagram.

The staff ensure that pupils receive a range of experience and ensure that work is not repeated because of a well thought-through cycle of work which has good breadth and a secure emphasis on prac...tical activities. Parents and carers are pleased that their children attend the school. As one wrote, 'Scampton is a lovely little school with a family atmosphere.

My child is very happy here and we are happy with his progress. What more could we ask for?' Pupils learn values and respect for each other and the older ones look after the younger ones well. Pupils appreciate the good care that they receive.

They develop a good understanding of healthy and safe living and contribute well to the school and local community, as well as gaining experiences about life more globally through their charitable interests. They are well prepared for their future education. The school has good links with parents and carers, and communicates with them regularly about school affairs.

However, parents and carers are not as well informed as they could be about their children's targets and the next steps that they need to take in their learning. This limits the support they can offer their children with their learning. Regular monitoring of teaching and learning takes place.

These include visits by governors and regular governing body meetings about pupils' rates of progress. Staff observe teaching and learning as part of this process. However, the evaluations are not always sharp enough because they are too descriptive and do not focus enough on the progress pupils make in their learning.

The school has a good capacity for further improvement. This is because the staff are alert to improvements that can yet be made. Leadership and management are good, the governing body is involved purposefully, the pupils make good progress in a wide range of subjects and the staff ensure that every pupil does their best.

Information about the school

This is a smaller- than- average- sized primary school. All of the pupils are White British. There are two mixed-age classes in Key Stage 2: Years 3/4 and Years 5/6.

The third class of Reception, Year 1 and 2 pupils is staffed flexibly by four members of staff between two bases. Children begin Reception full-time in the September preceding their fifth birthday. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is below the national average.

A higher percentage of pupils than is normally found join or leave the school at times other than the usual ones. About a third of the pupils have special educational needs and/or disabilities, a percentage much higher than that found nationally. Most of these are for moderate learning difficulties.

The school has more statemented pupils proportionately than in most schools. The school has several awards, including Healthy Schools status and International Schools (Foundation Level). The school suffered major flooding due to a burst pipe over the Christmas holidays 2010 as a result of which, the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children were in temporary accommodation during the inspection.
