Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Pupils achieve well. They make good progress in each year group as they move through the school. Teaching is good, with some that is outstanding.

Pupils enjoy the challenging tasks they are given. The teaching of reading is particularly good throughout the school. Pupils are fluent readers by the time they leave.

Pupils feel very safe at school. Bullying and other forms of bad behaviour are extremely rare. The support for pupils with special educational needs related to their behaviour is very effective in helping them learn to control their emotions.

Good leadership from the headteacher and governing body is driving th...e school forward. The school's systems for checking and improving the quality of teaching are outstanding. It is not yet an outstanding school because : There are not enough outstanding lessons for pupils to make consistently rapid progress.

Teachers do not always ensure that all pupils are working as hard as they can or tell off those who do not respond to their instructions quickly enough. Pupils do not know enough about the lives of people from backgrounds different from their own. The plans for improving the school are not clear enough for all staff to understand the part they can play and how success can be measured.

Information about this school

The school is much smaller than most other primary schools. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs supported through school action is below average. The proportion of pupils supported through school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs is below average.

The proportion of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or belong to other groups for whom the school receives additional income (the pupil premium) is below average. The school's most recent results cannot be compared to the government's current floor standards because there were not enough pupils to make such comparisons meaningful. There are three teachers at the school in addition to the headteacher.

Two of the teachers joined the school in September 2012, while the other returned to school in a full-time capacity in April 2012 after a long-term illness. The school shares its site with Hanwood Pre-School. This is not managed by the school's governing body and is subject to separate inspection.
