School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You have been well supported by your head of school, senior leaders, knowledgeable governors and dedicated staff that form a united team. You and your colleagues are always willing to reflect and learn to improve their own effectiveness. Since the previous inspection, standards at key stage 2 have improved in writing and mathematics. You have a clear understanding of the school’s performance and use this knowledge to make well-judged improvements to teaching. You quickly realised that pupils were not doing well enough in reading. Consequently, you are rightly focusing your attention on improving pupils’ reading skills and understanding with the introduction of new a reading strategy. As a result of this strategy, pupils have renewed their enthusiasm for reading and are now making good progress. You have established a caring and open community where positive relationships prevail. You have welcomed and encouraged parents to involve themselves in school life and provided them with valuable guidance and ‘hands on’ activities to support their children’s learning. As a result, pupils are keen to learn and appreciate what they are taught. Parents are extremely positive about the school. Almost all parents who were interviewed expressed immense contentment with the support their child receives with their learning. A parent commented that their child is ‘motivated [and] has grown in confidence’, while another stated, ‘My child does not stop telling me happy stories about her day at school.’ Safeguarding is effective. Leaders demonstrate a robust approach to making sure that pupils are safe. Staff have received the necessary training to ensure that they are fully aware of safeguarding procedures. Leaders’ work with other agencies is effective and they show perseverance in following up any concerns they have to make sure that pupils and their families get the help they need. Checks on the suitability of staff to work with children are thorough and well managed. You keep very thorough records of any poor behaviour or bullying incidents, although these are very few. You have an effective process in place for investigating reported bullying incidents. Pupils are able to explain what bullying is and are clear that this is a rare occurrence at their school. The pupils spoke about this being a ‘safe school’, where pupils are comfortable sharing their concerns with teachers. Pupils take part in online safety workshops, which ensure that they are aware of the dangers of using the internet. Parents are also offered support in this area, through well-considered workshops. Inspection findings In 2017, disadvantaged pupils in key stage 2 did not perform as well in reading as other pupils in the school. You have analysed the reasons for this and were able to articulate these clearly. The school’s assessment information for pupils currently in school shows that the majority of pupils are now making good progress towards achieving their expected outcomes in reading. Almost all disadvantaged pupils are making at least good progress. Leaders have improved the way that reading is taught. Pupils are given the opportunity to develop their phonics, which enables them to apply the skills learned to reading. You and your leadership team have a very clear awareness of the critical role that reading for pleasure plays in developing pupils’ understanding of texts. This has led to an improvement in the outcomes that many pupils achieve in reading at all key stages. For example, standards achieved at key stage 1 indicate that children make good progress from the end of early years. At key stage 2, the proportion achieving the expected standard was below the national average for reading in 2017. However, the school’s information and inspection evidence indicate that improvements are being made in this area, and current pupils make good progress in reading in almost all classes. At the previous inspection, leaders were asked to provide more opportunities for children in the early years to practise their reading, writing and numeracy skills in the outdoor area. Strong leadership of the early years has ensured that the stimulating outdoor provision helps children to develop these skills well. Effective induction arrangements allow children, especially those who speak English as an additional language, to settle quickly when they arrive at the school. Children are confident and are able to talk about what they are learning in the context of their topic. As a result, an increasing proportion of pupils achieve a good level of development in the early years. Leaders were also asked to ensure that pupils take care with their handwriting and the presentation of their work. This has been partly addressed and was strongly evident in the English books I analysed, but less so in other curriculum areas.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
