Information about this school

This school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for pupils in local authority care, those from service families and those known to be eligible for free school meals, is low. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is below average, but the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. There is a Nursery on site which is the main point of entry to the school. Pupils in the main school are taught in seven single-age classes from Reception through to Year 6.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils love their school and love learning. They have excellent attitudes to work and at all times strive to do their best. Pupils in all year groups make outstanding progress. The standards they attain by the end of Year 6 are above national averages and have been so since the previous inspection. Teaching is outstanding. Teachers have very high expectations of what pupils can achieve. They plan exciting work which inspires pupils to learn. Pupils use their reading, writing and mathematics skills exceptionally well in all aspects of learning. Pupils’ attendance is high and their punctuality is good. They arrive at school ready to learn and frequently remain after the school day has ended to engage in additional activities. Behaviour in and around the school is exemplary. Pupils feel very safe in school. They represent their school very well by being, at all times, courteous and polite. Visitors to the school are made to feel welcome. Pupils are proud of their school. They respect the school community and willingly take on roles and responsibilities. Leadership at all levels and governance are highly effective. The headteacher leads by example. She has worked successfully with her leadership team to bring about lasting improvements to pupils’ achievement and the quality of teaching. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is supported well. Pupils and parents comment favourably on this aspect of education at the school. Standards in reading for more-able pupils, although good, are not as consistently strong as they are in mathematics and writing.
