Ofsted Inspection Rating Outstanding
This inspection rating relates to a predecessor school. When a school, converts to an academy, is taken over or closes and reopens as a new school a formal link is created between the new school and the old school, by the Department for Education. Where the new school has not yet been inspected, we show the inspection history of the predecessor school, as we believe it still has significance.

Description of the school

St Ives is a small first school, although numbers are increasing, with 25% of pupils travelling from outside the area. The large majority of pupils are from White British backgrounds. Attainment on entry is broadly average, although lower in some key literacy skills. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is slightly above average, although much higher than this in some year groups. The school holds the Healthy School award. The school works closely with the St Ives Pre-School Playgroup, which shares the site, although the setting did not form part of this inspection.
