Information about this school

Haselor is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Most pupils are White British. No pupils speak English as an additional language.

A below-average proportion of pupils are supported by the pupil premium, which in this school provides additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals. An above-average proportion of pupils are supported at school action, but a below-average proportion are supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The school provides care for pupils before and after school.

There have been several changes of staff in the Reception and Year 1 class since the previous inspection. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Achievement in reading, writing and mathematics is good throughout this school because pupils are taught well. Children get off to a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage because they receive good quality individual support that helps them to succeed. Teaching is always at least good and is sometimes outstanding.

Teachers and other adults are particularly good at helping pupils who are at risk of falling behind to get back on track. Staff have successfully created a very positive climate for learning where pupils are valued as individuals. Pupils behave well and feel very safe.

They are immensely proud of their school. Older pupils look after and care about younger pupils particularly well. Attendance is high because pupils love coming to school.

Leadership and management, including governance, are good. Senior leaders work together well as a team in raising the quality of teaching and learning. The key to the success of this school lies in the strong leadership of the headteacher.

The school works well with its parents and carers. They feel involved in their children’s learning. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not enough pupils reach higher levels in mathematics in Key Stage 1.

Teachers do not always give pupils enough opportunities to practise their numeracy skills in different subjects, or show pupils how to improve when they mark their work in mathematics. Standards in writing are not as high as in other aspects of English. Teachers do not always expect enough of pupils and boys, in particular, find it difficult to write for a sustained period of time.
