Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The large majority of pupils, including the most able, make good progress in reading and writing by the time they leave, and the proportion of pupils who make better than expected progress is continuing to increase. Teaching is good. Teachers' marking gives pupils clear feedback on their work so that pupils know how to improve it.

Pupils enjoy their learning and work hard. Their attitudes to their learning are good. They concentrate well in lessons and behave well.

The headteacher has brought about excellent improvements in teaching and learning. Governors check the work of the school carefully and hold it to account for the ach...ievement of all its pupils. The pupil premium funding is used to support those who are eligible, and this is successfully closing gaps in achievement.

Pupils say that they feel safe and know how to get help if they need it. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Phonics (the match of letters and sounds) are not always being taught well enough to develop pupils' early writing sufficiently. Teachers do not assess pupils' learning precisely enough to set work at the right level to challenge pupils and move them forward in their learning, particularly in mathematics.

Pupils do not have enough understanding of the many different ways of life that exist in modern Britain. Leaders, apart from the headteacher and deputy headteacher, are not yet leading their areas with enough urgency.

Information about this school


Mary's is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportions from minority ethnic groups and those whose first language is not English is below average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is lower than average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is average. The proportion of pupils eligible to support from the pupil premium is below average.

This funding is allocated by the government to support those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The headteacher was appointed in September 2012.
