Information about this school

This is a much smaller-than-average-sized primary school. An above-average proportion of the pupils are eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children in local authority care and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals. None of the pupils speaks English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, including those supported at school action and school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs, is above average. The school meets the government’s current floor standard, which is the minimum expected for pupils’ attainment and progress.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils achieve well and make good progress; attainment in both reading and writing by the time pupils leave is above the national average. Children make a good start to school in the Early Years Foundation Stage and enjoy the exciting range of activities provided. The good teaching means that pupils enjoy lessons and learn at a fast pace in every class. Teachers use technology such as computers and interactive whiteboards effectively to motivate pupils and help them tackle demanding work. Pupils enjoy being part of a small school because of the ‘family atmosphere’. They feel safe and free from any form of bullying. Leaders are ambitious for the school. They are skilled at identifying where improvements need to be made and rectifying weaknesses. Rigorous systems to check on the quality of teaching and learning ensure that teachers know what they do well and how to improve. The governing body supports the school well and gains a thorough knowledge of the school through regular, well-planned visits. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils’ progress in mathematics at Key Stage 2 is slower than in English. Some pupils find it hard to calculate quickly in their head, and this affects their attainment in mathematics. A very small minority of pupils do not settle to their work quickly enough at the start of lessons.
