Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils achieve well and the school successfully meets the needs of all pupils.

Children make good progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Pupils make good progress to reach above average standards in English and mathematics by the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Teaching is good and some is outstanding.

Teachers have good subject knowledge. They plan lessons well and explain clearly to pupils what they will be learning in lessons. Behaviour and safety are good.

Pupils are well behaved and have good attitudes to learning. Pupils work very well with each other in lessons. They are very proud of the school and behaviour a...round the site is good.

Pupils say they feel very safe in school. Leaders know how well the school is performing and what needs to be done to improve. They check the progress of individual children thoroughly.

The interesting range of activities offered by the school makes a strong contribution to pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not enough teaching is outstanding to enable even more pupils to reach the higher levels. The marking of pupils' work, the guidance on how they can improve and the opportunities they have to respond to teachers' comments are not consistent in all classes.

Curriculum leaders for English and mathematics do not have enough opportunities to observe teaching in their subjects in order to identify ways of improving teachers' performance.

Information about this school

The Croft is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, looked after children and pupils with a parent in the armed services) is well below average.

The percentage of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is above average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well below average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is below average.

A very small number of pupils are at the early stages of English language acquisition. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics in Year 6. There is a pre-school and after school club on the school site which are registered independently and therefore inspected separately from the school.
