Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The headteacher and senior leaders provide a clear sense of direction for the school.

They successfully lead improvement in teaching and pupils' achievement because they have an accurate view of the school's strengths and weaknesses. The quality of teaching has steadily improved since the previous inspection and is now good. Pupils are making good progress across the school and are on track to reach above average standards in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

All groups of pupils, including disabled pupils, those who have special educational needs, those eligible for the pupil premium and the most able pupils achieve well. Be...haviour is outstanding and pupils feel very safe and very well cared for in this school. Pupils' highly positive attitudes to learning and their good communication, reading, writing and mathematical `skills prepare them well for secondary school.

Staff morale is high. All staff with leadership responsibilities contribute positively to school improvement and feel well supported in their roles. Lessons and other activities engage the pupils' interests, encourage them to use their initiative in their learning and strongly promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Governors have a good understanding of the school and continually challenge the headteacher to improve the quality of provision. It is not yet an outstanding school because : There is not yet enough outstanding teaching to ensure that all pupils reach the highest possible standards across the school. Though rapidly improving, standards in writing and mathematics are not yet as high as in reading.

Information about this school

St John's is an average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (additional government funding, which in this school is allocated for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is broadly average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are identified at the school action plus level or with statements of special educational needs, is similar to that found nationally.

Almost all the pupils are from White British backgrounds and nearly all the pupils speak English as a first language. The school meets current floor standards, whereby the government sets the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The Children's Centre on the site and after-school provision are inspected and reported upon separately.
