Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The headteacher and deputy headteacher have high expectations and are working together effectively to improve teaching and to ensure all pupils achieve well.

Subject and phase leaders are making a good contribution to school improvement. Pupils make good progress in reading and writing. Standards have risen significantly since the last inspection.

Much of the teaching is good. There is no inadequate teaching. Most pupils behave well and have a good understanding of the importance of personal safety.

The governing body checks on the work of the school and sets challenging but appropriate targets for the headteacher. It is not yet... an outstanding school because : Too many pupils do not reach the expected standard in the reading check at the end of Year 1. Most pupils' progress in mathematics in Key Stage 1 is not fast enough.

The standards reached at the end of Year 2 are lower than those in reading and writing. Not all lessons are taught well. More-able pupils are not always challenged sufficiently.

The details in the school development plan to help governors check on the impact of the actions on pupils' attainment and progress are not precise enough.

Information about this school

The school is similar in size to the average-sized primary school. The large majority pupils are of White British origin.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic heritage is slightly higher than in most schools. They come from a number of different minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is broadly average.

Few are currently at the early stages of learning English. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is broadly average. The proportion identified for additional support through school action plus is below average.

Currently, there are no pupils holding a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of pupils supported through the pupil premium is below average. This is additional government funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, those who are looked after by the local authority, and other eligible groups.

The school runs a breakfast club during term time. The school hosts a pre-school and an after-school club. They were not visited as part of this inspection because they are not run by the governing body.
