Information about this school

This school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for support from pupil premium funding (additional money provided by the government for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority) is below average. The proportion of pupils on the school’s register 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 in English and mathematics.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Senior leaders and governors have secured significant improvements in the quality of teaching and pupils’ achievement since the last inspection. Pupils make good progress from their starting points, including disadvantaged pupils, those with special educational needs and the most able. Standards have improved in reading and writing, including English grammar, punctuation and spelling, and in mathematics. Test results and assessments were above average by the end of Year 6, in summer 2015. The good teaching of phonics skills (the sounds that letters make) in Reception and Key Stage 1 enables pupils to reach above-average standards in reading. Teaching in Key Stage 2 is consistently good or better. The school cares very well for its pupils. They all feel safe and included and so they thrive. Pupils in Year 6 assert that there is no bullying of any kind. Pupils’ behaviour is good. Their improved attendance is evidence that they enjoy coming to school. The wider curriculum is inspiring for staff and pupils who take part in a variety of interesting visits and activities to enrich the topics studied. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strongly promoted. Pupils leave the school well prepared to become active citizens in modern Britain. Provision in the Reception class is good for children of all abilities and backgrounds. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching in Key Stage 1 is not as good as it is in the rest of the school, especially in writing and mathematics. Marking and feedback in Key Stage 1 workbooks are not consistently clear or legible for pupils. Boys’ attainment tends not to be as high as girls’ in mathematics and English by the end of Year 6.
