Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils are very happy and proud of their school.

They attend regularly and pupils and their parents agree the school is very safe. Pastoral care is a strength. Staff always 'go the extra mile' for their pupils and families and work extremely well with external agencies, especially to support those whose circumstances might put them at risk.

Progress is good and attainment is rising. By the time pupils leave Year 6, their attainment matches national averages in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils with special educational needs and those covered by the pupil premium progress as well as, and often faster, than their classmates.
.../>This is because they receive very well-organised help for their individual needs. Consistently good teaching captures pupils' interest, so they are eager to learn and work hard. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted well.

Behaviour is good and pupils are considerate and keen to take part in the extra activities on offer. Outstanding leadership, inspired by the headteacher's commitment, aims to make the school the best it can be and offer 'The brightest future for every pupil'. Senior leaders and staff share this vision and have been highly effective in raising achievement and improving the quality of teaching so more is outstanding.

This gives the school a very strong basis to build on and improve further. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The quality of teaching does not result yet in outstanding achievement for pupils. Progress in writing still lags behind that of reading and mathematics because pupils often misspell common words, do not always use grammar, punctuate their work correctly or write neatly.

Information about this school

The school is much larger than most primary schools. The great majority of pupils are of White British heritage. Almost three-quarters of the pupils are supported by the pupil premium funding, which is well above average.

The pupil premium is additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs supported through school is below the national average and the proportion of pupils supported through school action plus or with a statement of their special educational needs is above average. The school meets the government's current floor standards which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

The school offers a breakfast club and a wide range of after-school activities. The number of pupils on roll has increased considerably since the previous inspection. Ongoing building work to complete extensions to the school are due for completion this year.
