Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Pupils make good progress overall.

They do especially well in reading and mathematics and reach above average standards in these subjects by the time they leave the school. All the different groups of pupils make at least good progress, including those with disabilities and special educational needs. Pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium make exceptional progress because : of the additional support provided.

Teaching is good overall and of high quality in the Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 2. Pupils enjoy coming to school and feel safe. The school is very effective at promoting pupils' spiritual, moral, social and ...cultural development.

This is reflected in their exemplary behaviour and high attendance. The quality of teaching and pupils' achievement are improving as a result of the strong leadership of the headteacher. Other school senior leaders have contributed very effectively to the process of improvement, whereas the contribution of the governing body has been more limited.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : The attainment in writing across the school, although improving, is not high enough. The role of the governors in monitoring and evaluating the impact of the school's work is not yet fully developed.

Information about this school

This is a larger than average-sized primary school.

In September 2012, the school admitted a bulge class into the Reception Year. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs who are supported by school action plus or with statements is above the average, while the proportion supported at school action is below average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funds allocated by the government) is below average.

The numbers of pupils from ethnic backgrounds other than White British and those who speak English as an additional language are well above the national average. The school does not offer a breakfast club but there is a facility for parents and carers to drop off their children early in the morning. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
