Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, supported well by senior leaders and governors, has transformed the school and the quality of teaching so that it is now good. Governors understand the school’s strengths and weaknesses exceptionally well and offer excellent support and challenge. Subject leaders now play an effective part in driving improvement. However, their work to raise the quality of teaching and assessment in the subjects they lead is not consistently strong. Teachers’ use of questioning and assessment is much better than at the time of the previous inspection. As a result, pupils benefit from well- planned, challenging lessons across a wide range of subjects. The teaching of English and mathematics is mainly good. However, there remain variations in how effectively teachers plan the teaching of reading. Leaders and governors make effective use of additional funding to raise the achievement of disadvantaged pupils. Pupils learn in depth about and apply values which benefit their community and help them contribute well to society. Pupils enjoy the interesting and diverse curriculum. Children in the early years make good progress because teachers organise and use assessment well to plan interesting, engaging activities indoors and outdoors. Children across the whole school behave well in and out of lessons. They help each other and take pride in working hard. Pupils learn well about keeping themselves safe. Most parents, carers, staff and pupils are positive about the arrangements for safeguarding.
