Information about this school

The school is larger than the average-sized primary school. A large majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is well below the national average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children in the care of the local authority and other groups) is well below the national average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs, are both below average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school is currently preparing to move from three-form to four-form entry. During the last year the school has undergone several changes in staffing. The school holds several awards, including Artsmark Gold and the International School award.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Most pupils attain well above the national average by the end of Year 6. They achieve particularly well in reading and mathematics. Pupils who are disabled or have special educational needs share in the good progress. Teaching is of good quality. Many teachers have high expectations and excellent relationships with pupils, who consequently make good progress. Pupils behave very well in lessons and around the school. They greatly enjoy school and feel very safe and well looked after. Pupils enjoy responsibility, whether serving on the school council or in other roles. The leadership, well supported by governors, has maintained and improved upon the high standards from the previous inspection. The senior leadership and heads of year check the quality of teaching frequently and rigorously. The school has an imaginative approach to the curriculum, developing a range of topics to interest pupils and emphasising independence and critical thinking skills. The school has particular strengths in music and the performing arts. There are excellent opportunities for promoting spiritual, moral, social and cultural education. Parents and carers have every confidence in the school and the quality of education it provides for their children. It is not yet an outstanding school because: There is not enough outstanding teaching to ensure the best possible progress for every pupil. Occasionally work is not challenging enough for more able pupils and teachers’ marking does not consistently show pupils how to improve their work to the highest level. Progress in writing is slower than in other subjects, with limited opportunities for pupils to write freely and creatively in a range of subjects. Some of the very few pupils in receipt of pupil premium funding do not achieve as well as other pupils in the school.
