Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Pupils achieve well in all year groups, including Reception. They make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics, and reach above average standards by the end of Year 6. Improvement in learning has risen in the last two years, particularly in reading and mathematics.

Teaching is consistently good throughout the school, and is sometimes outstanding, particularly in Key Stage 2. Teachers relate very effectively to pupils, and have good subject knowledge and high expectations. The behaviour and safety of pupils are outstanding.

They have enthusiastic attitudes to learning and show great care and respect for each other and a...dults. The school is led very effectively by a decisive and caring headteacher, who constantly encourages staff and pupils alike to do the best they can. The school is a happy and colourful place, where pupils' work is displayed for all to enjoy, and where they make excellent contributions to the school community and the wider world.

The governing body is well led, and plays an active part in the drive for continual improvement. Governors work well with staff, and offer good support and challenge to leaders. It is not yet an outstanding school because: The good progress that pupils have recently made has not yet been sustained consistently over time and has varied year-on-year in the past.

Not enough teaching is consistently outstanding to enable pupils to reach high levels of attainment in English and mathematics.

Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Almost all of the pupils are White British, the remainder coming from a range of other ethnic heritages.

A very small proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special needs supported through school action is average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average.

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is below average. This is additional government funding provided for children in the care of the local authority, pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals in the last six years, and those who are members of families in the armed forces. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

The school is organised into four mixed-aged classes. Since the previous inspection, the school has completed a major building extension. There have also been recent changes of teaching staff.
