Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The school's senior leaders and the governing body have ensured that the school has improved and is now good. Pupils are making increasingly good progress, resulting in the most recent attainment for reading and mathematics at the end of key stage 2 being above the national average. Pupils' attainment in grammar, punctuation and spelling is lower than the national average.

Phonics teaching is good; pupils use their understanding of letters and sounds effectively in their reading. Pupils given additional support are supported well and make good progress. The school has developed rigorous systems that enable teachers to assess pupil progress accurat...ely and track their development.

Teachers do not address the gaps in pupils' learning effectively enough before expecting them to move on to complete more complex work. Pupils are polite and courteous. They are kind to each other.

In the early years, children make good progress. This is because the adults know the children well and use this information to plan appropriately. Leadership in the early years is good.

Teaching throughout the school is good because of effective leadership, particularly from subject leaders who ensure that teachers' knowledge is secure. School attendance is above average. The overwhelming majority of children enjoy coming to school.

Pupils' behaviour in school is good. They generally behave well in lessons and understand the school's high expectations of them. Pupils take pride in the presentation of their work in English and mathematics.

Presentation is not so good in other subjects. Links to the local church and the school's strong set of values ensure that the provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good.
