Performance Tables are also produced by the Department for Education (DfE). They give information on the achievements of pupils in primary, secondary and 16-18 provision in schools and colleges, and how they compare with other schools in the Local Authority (LA) area and in England as a whole. From 2011 the scope of the tables was changed to display a wider range of key performance measures including information on finance, absence, school workforce and the most recent Ofsted reports.

We were very pleased with the outcome of our 2014 Ofsted inspection. The inspectors graded the school as good and identified several outstanding features including exceptional learning opportunities, outstanding opportunities to excel in the arts and rising standards in recent years. Parents were overwhelmingly supportive of the school and governors were commended for their strong contribution towards school development.
Here are some of the key strengths identified within the report:
Pupils achieve well and make at least good progress throughout the school. Some pupils in Years 5 and 6 are making outstanding progress.
Standards at the end of Year 6 have risen in recent years. They are significantly above average in reading, writing and mathematics
Teaching is good and there is some outstanding teaching, especially in Years 5 and 6.
Pupils behave well, enjoy learning and feel safe in school. They are all equally included and the school is a warm, welcoming and vibrant community.
The school provides exceptional learning opportunities, made exciting by numerous educational visits, after-school clubs and special events.
Senior leaders and managers have worked well in raising standards since the previous inspection. They have brought about improvement in a number of areas.
The governing body has an extremely detailed knowledge of the school’s work. It makes a strong contribution to school development.
Here are the areas which were identified as requiring further development:
Develop the indoor and outdoor area in the EYFS
Provide more challenge in the EYFS; especially in literacy
Disemminate outstanding practice across the school
Ensure all children respond to marking in books
