Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The inspirational leadership of the headteacher has led to significant improvements. She has maintained the much-loved family feel of the school, alongside a high level of professionalism.

She is determined that all the pupils will do well. Since the previous inspection, senior leaders and governors have managed significant staff changes well, always keeping parents informed. Everyone is valued and respected and works well as a team.

Senior leaders and governors have a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses in the school. They have secure plans in place to address remaining issues, and, rightly, are reviewing the provision to ...ensure that it meets the many differing needs of the small numbers of children. Most pupils currently in the school are making good progress from their starting points in reading, writing and mathematics, because of the good and improving quality of teaching.

Pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities make good progress. Teachers and teaching assistants provide high-quality support and encourage these pupils to develop as independent learners. A rich variety of curriculum experiences, including a wide range of visits, contribute well to pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, which is interwoven through the whole curriculum.

The school has a very strong culture of safeguarding and care. Pupils enjoy school and are confident that they are safe. They behave well and are considerate to each other.

Most parents are positive about the school and say their children are safe and happy. In lessons, some tasks are not well enough matched to pupils' abilities, particularly for the most able pupils. Teachers do not routinely extend pupils' knowledge and skills to deepen pupils' understanding.

The teaching of phonics is currently under review as it is not taught consistently well across the school.

Information about this school

The school is significantly smaller than the average-sized infant school. At the time of the inspection there were 18 children on roll.

Four of the children attend the Reception class in the morning. They join the pupils in the other class in the afternoon. In order to avoid identifying individual pupils in this small school, the report does not cover some aspects of the school's work.

As there are so few children in early years, the report does not specifically report on that stage. The school is a member of the Village Schools Federation. It is one of five schools which share a headteacher, deputy headteacher and governing body.

Since the last inspection, there have been a significant number of staff changes. There was a period of interim leadership, which was followed by the appointment of a permanent headteacher from January 2018. The two class teachers joined the school in September 2018.

One was appointed as executive deputy headteacher for the federation. She is currently teaching full-time at St Andrews because of the recent departure of a member of staff. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is well above the national average.
