Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Outstanding teaching and a lively curriculum ensure that all pupils develop and achieve exceptionally well relative to their starting points.

Rapid progress throughout the school ensures that standards are usually well above average by the end of Year 6. All groups of pupils, including disabled pupils, those who have special educational needs, those eligible for the pupil premium and the most-able pupils make good progress. Pupils joining the school in different year groups achieve as well as others because : they are given work at the right level from the start.

Pupils are confident learners and communicators and are very well p...repared for their secondary education. Behaviour is outstanding and pupils feel very safe in school. They fully understand and support the school's emphasis on core human values.

The headteacher sets high expectations for teachers to continually improve their teaching, with a clear and strong emphasis on the quality of the pupils' learning. Governors have very effectively ensured continuity of high quality provision during the current transition period in leadership and management. Some parents have commented favourably on this.

Information about this school

This is a much-smaller-than-average primary school in a very rural setting. It takes in pupils from a wide range of social and economic backgrounds. Nearly all the pupils are of White British heritage and hardly any speak English as an additional language.

A broadly average proportion of pupils is supported by the pupil premium. In this school the pupil premium is allocated for looked-after pupils and those known to be eligible for free school meals. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is broadly average.

An above average proportion is supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. Most of these pupils have specific or moderate learning difficulties, speech, language and communication needs or behaviour, emotional and social difficulties. An above-average proportion of pupils join or leave the school part-way through their primary education.

The school meets the current government floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. An acting headteacher and deputy headteacher were appointed from 1 January 2014 following the departure of the previous headteacher and a class teacher and pending the appointment of a new permanent leadership and management team. An executive headteacher, who is a local leader of education, was also appointed at the same time to oversee the transition period.
