The main school is organised into six classes and from Year 3 pupils are taught in mixed-age classes.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils are making good progress and achieving well. Improvements in the quality of teaching have ensured that the rates of progress in English and mathematics continue to rise. This has resulted in improving standards, which by the end of Year 6 are at least in line with the national average. Standards in reading are above average. Teachers increase pupils’ enjoyment of learning through a stimulating range of activities. This contributes strongly to their good spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development. Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs are fully included in lessons and make good progress due to effective teaching and support. Pupils’ behaviour is good because staff set high expectations and pupils respond positively to these. They enjoy school, have positive attitudes and are highly respectful to each other and their teachers. Pupils feel safe in school as the quality of safeguarding is good. Pupils are confident, thoughtful and take their responsibilities seriously, especially for learning and the welfare of younger pupils. The school is led well by a caring headteacher, who sets a good example through her own teaching and is strongly supported by staff and parents. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Girls’ progress in reading is slower than other aspects of their work. Teachers plan work for more-able pupils but sometimes do not introduce it early enough in lessons. Some marking of pupils work does not correct basic mistakes, or tell pupils clearly what they should do next.
