Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school School leaders, ably led by the headteacher, have ensured that pupils continue to receive a good quality of education.

They have established a positive culture of high expectations. Governors strike a happy balance between challenge and support for the headteacher and senior staff. In doing so, governors make a meaningful contribution to school improvement.

Staff work effectively as a team and are proud to be part of the 'Flitch Green family'. There is little difference in the progress of disadvantaged pupils, those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities and others. Teachers set suitably challenging work for most pup...ils most of the time because they use assessment information well.

This means that pupils currently in the school are making strong progress. Teaching assistants are a strength of the school. They are highly effective in supporting pupils to make strong progress.

Pupils behave exceptionally well. This contributes to their sense of safety. In most lessons, teachers make learning interesting.

This means that pupils are often engrossed in their work and they make good gains in their learning in lessons and over time. Pupils benefit from a strong focus on citizenship and life skills education within the curriculum. Together, these contribute to pupils' good personal development and prepare them well for the future.

Provision for the early years is good and, consequently, children thrive on rich and vibrant experiences. Most-able pupils are not challenged consistently well enough to make sure that they reach their potential.

Information about this school

This is an average-sized primary school which is oversubscribed in some year groups.

Almost all pupils are from White British backgrounds and speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils who join and leave the school at other than the usual times is average. Only a very small number of pupils are supported by the pupil premium.

The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities who are supported through special educational needs support or with an education, health and care plan is below average. No pupils are educated off-site or through alternative provision. The school provides a breakfast club and an after-school club that are managed by the governing body.

The school shares a site with a private pre-school. This is inspected separately. In 2017, the school met the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
