Information about this school
The school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. Until 2015, pupils left at the end of Year 5 to go on to the next stage of their education. However, at the end of this academic year, the Year 5 pupils will remain at the school another year and move to secondary education at the end of Year 6. Early years provision is full-time for pupils in the Reception class and part-time for two and three-year-old children attending the on-site All Saints pre-school. The governing body is responsible for managing the pre-school and this was included in the inspection. The majority of pupils are White British and speak English as their first language. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is above average. The school does not currently include Year 6 pupils, so it is not measured against the government’s floor standards for attainment and progress by the end of Key Stage 2. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium is well above average. The pupil premium is additional funding for disadvantaged pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. The school provides a breakfast club, which was included in this inspection.

They make good progress and are ready for continuing their learning in Year 1. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is not yet outstanding because there are inconsistencies in the emphasis given to spelling, punctuation, handwriting and grammar when teachers are marking pupils’ work. Foundation subject leaders do not yet have sufficient impact on improving the quality of teaching and learning. Children need more opportunities to develop their writing in the early years.
