Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Since the previous inspection, leaders have reviewed all aspects of their practice.

The leadership team has worked closely with staff to bring about positive change over the last year. Leaders and governors have a good understanding of where the school is now and what still needs to be done. Teaching is good.

Leaders have successfully supported teachers to provide engaging teaching of reading linked to books and topics studied in history and geography. The standard of reading has improved. Teachers use an approach to teaching mathematics that emphasises reasoning and developing fluency in the use of number.

Pupils have become mor...e confident in their use of mathematics. There is a broad curriculum in place, with externally recognised strengths in teaching French. Pupils' behaviour is of a good standard.

They work hard in lessons. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are supported well in the classroom and make good progress, especially in reading and mathematics. Teachers check pupils' understanding through effective questioning.

Even so, pupils do not clearly explain their thinking using the subject vocabulary and knowledge that they have learned. Pupils make less progress in writing than in reading and mathematics. Leaders have put clear plans in place to make better use of the wider curriculum for applying and practising writing but these are at an early stage of implementation.

In the Nursery, children are happy and enjoy being at school. However, there are not enough opportunities for staff to promote effective learning through purposeful play. Most governors are relatively new.

They are enthusiastic and starting to be involved in the life of the school. They are not holding leaders to account sufficiently on the impact of the new approaches to teaching and learning or of the use of additional funding.

Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school.

Around one third of the pupils have a parent serving in the armed forces. The school moved onto the current site, previously a middle school, in September 2016. The school operates its own breakfast and after-school clubs.

School leaders work on an informal basis with three other local schools to provide peer support. There is a separately run and Ofsted-registered pre-school, Stanton Pre-School, in rooms that are part of the school building. These are separately accessed and leased directly from the local authority.
