This is a good school.

All groups of pupils are making good progress, including those supported by additional government funding. Children get off to a good start in Reception. They settle quickly and enjoy learning.

Pupils have a very positive attitude towards their learning and take a pride in their work. Teachers have high expectations of the pupils. They choose activities that interest them and, as a result, pupils enjoy learning.

Pupils are pro...vided with a variety of learning activities, both in the classroom and in the local environment. Teaching assistants are used effectively to support pupils with their learning. The school is a safe environment and pupils say they feel safe in school.

The headteacher monitors pupils' progress closely. She uses data to identify pupils who are not making progress and provides them and staff with the support they need in order to increase their rate of progress. Pupils are well behaved around the school.

They play together at break and lunchtime and the vast majority of older pupils act as role models for younger pupils. Attendance is above average. Governors provide strong leadership.

They monitor the work of the school by visiting lessons, talking to pupils and by analysing data. They have high aspirations for the pupils in the school.

Information about this school

The school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. All pupils are White British.

Pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 are taught in three mixed-age classes. Very few pupils are supported by the pupil premium. The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after by the local authority.

The proportion of pupils supported at school action is above average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below the national average. There were too few pupils in Year 6 in 2013 for the government's floor standards to be applicable.
