Information about this school

Tilney All Saints CE VC Primary School is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. Almost all pupils are from White British backgrounds. A small number are from Romany or Gypsy backgrounds. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is average. The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. An average proportion of pupils are supported by the pupil premium, which, in this school, provides additional funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. The number of pupils in Year 6 last year was too small for the government’s floor standards to be applicable. The school entered a partnership with another local school after the last inspection. The headteacher leads both schools but each has its own governing body. The teaching staff has changed completely since the last inspection.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress from their different starting points. Progress is rapidly improving due to the good-quality teaching. In most year groups, attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is above that expected for pupils’ ages. The school ensures that the most-able pupils make good progress through a good range of interesting activities. Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs are well supported so that their progress is in line with their classmates. Pupils’ behaviour in and around the school is good and has a very positive impact on their learning. The improvements made to leadership and pupils’ progress since the previous inspection show the school has a good capacity to improve still further. The partnership with another school and the sharing of leadership and expertise, although at an early stage, has quickly had a positive impact on pupils’ progress and the quality of teaching. The work of the governing body has improved since the previous inspection. They now provide good support and are better able to question and hold the school to account. All staff demonstrate a clear commitment to raising standards and improving teaching and learning. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Progress in reading is not as good as in writing and mathematics. Not all pupils understand the content of what they are reading about. The library does not include enough non-fiction books for pupils, especially the younger ones, to use as a resource. Teachers do not have enough opportunities to observe and work alongside outstanding teachers in other schools and settings. Not all of the work provided for pupils in subjects other than English and mathematics is sufficiently challenging.
