Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school This school is improving rapidly. As a result of the outstanding leadership of the executive headteacher, supported well by leaders at all levels, the quality of teaching is now strongly good and outcomes have risen accordingly. Pupils are now making good progress in English and mathematics throughout the school.

Expectations of what pupils can achieve are high and they respond accordingly. Pupils behave very well, both in their lessons and during less-structured parts of the day. A consistent approach by all staff means that pupils always know what is expected of them.

The school benefits from working collaboratively with the other in its 'hub'. The shared lead practitioners have a clear impact on improving the quality of teaching. The school is a safe place.

Safeguarding is given an appropriately high priority and is seen as everyone's responsibility, throughout the school. The school's culture of continual development means that teaching is always improving. Teachers are given excellent opportunities to develop their own practice.

Children's education gets off to a good start in the early years classes. From often low starting points, pupils make good progress so that they are ready for Year 1 at the end of their time in Reception. Attendance remains below the national average and is particularly low for some groups of pupils.

There have been recent improvements and leaders are addressing this issue. Evidence of the progress pupils make in subjects other than English and mathematics is limited. However, it is clear that pupils learn about an appropriately broad range of subjects.

Some pupils' progress in reading is limited by the narrow range of genres they read and their ability to work out the meaning of unfamiliar words.
