School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
This is a smaller than average-sized primary school set in a rural village. Pupils are taught in three mixed age-group classes: a Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 class; a Year 3 and Year 4 class; and a Year 5 and Year 6 class. All pupils attending the school come from White British backgrounds. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is well below the national average.

The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs supported at school action, school action plus or with statements of special educational needs is also below the national average.

These needs include specific learning difficulties. The leadership of the school is presently shared between two co-headteachers. One of the headteachers was in sole charge of the school until taking maternity leave. During her absence, the school was led and managed by an acting headteacher.

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