Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils thoroughly enjoy school.

Relationships between pupils, families and school staff are highly positive. Teaching is good. Work is well-matched to pupils' needs.

Lessons are interesting and encourage pupils to develop independence, and pupils achieve well. Outstanding teaching for older pupils ensures that children are very well prepared for the next stage of their education. Pupils are very keen to learn and their behaviour is outstanding.

This is because : staff care exceptionally well for all pupils and promote good manners and consideration for others very effectively. Pupils feel very safe at school and instances of bul...lying are rare. Any misbehaviour is dealt with thoroughly.

School leaders plan carefully for each pupil enabling them to make good, and improving, progress. The school has improved since its previous inspection because leaders have sharply focused on ensuring that teachers make good use of assessment to inform teaching and learning. Strong leadership and management underpin the school's capacity to improve in the future.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : A minority of teachers are not always challenged sufficiently to improve aspects of their teaching. Occasionally lesson introductions continue for too long, constraining the pace and challenge presented to the pupils.

Information about this school

This school is slightly smaller than the average-size primary school.

The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage and there are no pupils who speak English as an additional language. A lower than average proportion of pupils are supported by the pupil premium funding. The school runs its own breakfast club and after-school clubs.

The proportion of disabled pupils, those with special educational needs, those supported through school action and school action plus and those with statements, is smaller than average. These pupils' needs mainly include speech and language needs, and hearing impairment and physical disabilities. All pupils are taught in single year group classes, including children in the Early Years Foundation Stage who are taught in a Reception class.

A privately funded pre-school operates on the school site and also shares some of the school's facilities. As it is managed independently it was not part of this inspection. The school meets the government's current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
