Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Due to outstanding teaching over time, all pupils make rapid progress. They consistently reach standards well above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

The most able pupils reach very high standards in reading, writing and mathematics. Leaders and managers, including governors, have the highest possible aspirations for each pupil. Their rigorous checking of the school's work has ensured that it is rapidly improving.

Since the previous inspection, the headteacher and deputy headteacher have vigorously tackled the necessary improvements. They have created a dedicated team of staff who are ...equally determined to improve their own practice. This has resulted in outstanding teaching.

Pupils' very positive attitudes to learning contribute to their outstanding achievement. Pupils behave extremely well in class and outside at play. The school's procedures for keeping them safe are also outstanding.

Subject and middle leaders contribute strongly to improving provision for pupils in all year groups, including those with disabilities or special educational needs. The governing body has challenged the school's leaders to do even better. Through regular visits to school and links with subject and senior leaders, governors have a deep understanding of the achievement of each pupil.

The early years provision is outstanding. Children are nurtured from the outset, and given exciting activities which motivate them. As a result, progress during the Reception year is rapid and the children are well prepared for Key Stage 1.

Information about this school

St Mary's is a smaller-than-average-sized primary school with seven classes, one for each year group. The youngest pupils are taught full time in a Reception class. The vast majority of pupils are of White British origin.

The school was awarded the Artsmark Gold in 2014. The proportion of pupils entitled to support through the additional government funding, which is provided to support pupils eligible for free school meals or those in the care of the local authority, is lower than average. There are very few eligible pupils in each year group.

The proportion of pupils with special educational needs or disabilities is similar to the national average. A breakfast and after-school club is provided every day, and is managed by the governing body. The school meets the current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations set by the government for pupils' progress and standards at the end of Year 6.
