Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Pupils in all key stages make good progress and, by the end of Year 6, reach above average standards in English and mathematics. Most of the teaching is good. Pupils behave well and know how to keep themselves safe.

Attendance is above average. The recently appointed senior leaders and the governing body work together effectively to improve outcomes for pupils and to raise the school's profile in the community. Procedures for checking how well pupils are progressing have been tightened up.

Senior leaders know exactly what needs to be done to improve the school further and have the support of the staff to bring about changes. It ...is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils are not developing their reading skills quickly enough. Teachers do not make clear what they expect of pupils at different stages during some lessons.

Pupils are not given enough opportunity to find things out for themselves. The governing body does not look closely enough at the spending of pupil premium funding and its impact on pupils' progress.

Information about this school

The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school.

The large majority of pupils are of White British heritage. All pupils speak English as their first language. The proportions of pupils supported through school action, and at school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs, are broadly similar to national averages.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium, additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or in the care of the local authority, is well below the national average for primary schools. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The headteacher and deputy headteacher have been in post since September 2011.

The school's part-time Nursery operates five mornings a week. In addition, the school hosts a privately run afternoon pre-school/nursery. It was not included in this inspection.
