In their report, Ofsted praised standards at the school and highlighted the progress made since the previous inspection five years ago.

Headteacher Stephanie Liley said: “We are delighted with the report which recognises the dedication and hard work of all the staff, pupils and governors.

“We appreciate the support of parents, our friends at Holy Trinity Church and in the local community.

“It really has been a team effort.

“We look forward to going on to even greater things in the future.”

Ofsted say pupils make good progress across the school and by the end of Year 6, reach standards that are above average in reading - and average in writing and mathematics.

They rate teaching as “consistently at least good and some outstanding.”

Inspectors point out all groups of pupils - including disabled children and those with special educational needs - receive the support they need.

It adds the behaviour of pupils is good and that children are “keen learners with a positive desire to do well.”

Pupils also show great care and respect for their teachers and enjoy coming to school.

The report says: “Pupils are thoughtful and readily reflect on their learning and this contributes well to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.”

The leadership of the school gets high praise - as do governors who Ofsted describe as “committed to the success of every pupil.”

Ofsted explains the school is not yet rated outstanding because teachers do not always encourage pupils how to tackle problems for themselves, rather than wait to be told what to do.
