School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Andover Church of England Primary School is an average-sized primary school.

Most pupils are of White British origin. Few pupils in the school speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs who are supported through school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs is similar to that in most schools. A slightly higher proportion is supported by school action than in other schools.

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium, which is extra funding from the government to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals (or have been eligible at any point in the last six years), children of service families and children who are looked after by the local authority, has risen in the last three years and is now similar to that in most schools.

The school has undergone a number of changes since the previous inspection. A number of teachers left the school, including the headteacher and deputy headteacher. The current headteacher is a National Leader in Education and is also the headteacher of another school.

She took part-time responsibility for the school in November 2011, following the resignation of the previous headteacher and joined the school full time in January 2012. The deputy headteacher joined the school in April 2012. At the end of October 2011, the governing body was replaced by an IEB. A shadow governing body has been working with the IEB since January 2013. A process of transferring full responsibility to the governing body is underway and will be completed by January 2014. Three members of the IEB have accepted invitations to serve on the shadow governing body.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics.

The local authority has used some of the teaching at the school as good exemplars to support other schools in improving the quality of teaching.
