Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The headteacher's good leadership of teaching and learning together with effective management of teachers' performance have raised the quality of teaching, so that it is at least good and some is outstanding. Consistently good teaching over the last four years has sustained standards at the end of Year 6, which are above average, nationally.

All groups of pupils eligible for extra funding (pupil premium) make consistently good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Parents appreciate the school's caring ethos, which ensures that everyone is included, pupils feel safe and behaviour is consistently good. Members of the governing body play a ...significant part in making important decisions which drive the school forward.

Senior leaders and members of the governing body have an accurate view of the school's strengths and priorities for improvement. Information and communication technology (ICT) is used well across all subject areas. It raises the confidence of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs and makes them keen to learn, within the school's safe environment.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : The proportion of teaching which is outstanding is not high enough to ensure all pupils learn exceptionally well. There are a few occasions when the main purpose of pupils' learning is not made clear to them and teachers' expectations of what pupils can achieve are not high enough. Learning does not always motivate pupils or provide them with opportunities to develop the skills for independent learning.

Information about this school

Wolverton Primary School is a smaller-than-average primary school. Most pupils are from a White British background. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for extra funding (pupil premium) is well below the national average.

(The pupil premium provides extra funding for pupils eligible for free school meals, those in care and those with a parent in the armed services.) The proportions of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs who are supported through school action, school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs are all below average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

The school runs a breakfast and after-school club for its pupils. There are four classes. There is one Reception class for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Years 1 and 2, Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6 are taught in mixed-aged classes. The school works with and has the support of a group of local schools. The headteacher took up post in February 2012.
