Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders provide a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum which encourages pupils to follow the school's motto: 'we are the best that we can be'.

Leaders have an accurate view of the school. However, whole-school improvement plans lack specific criteria by which leaders can measure success. Teaching is good.

Pupils develop as enthusiastic learners with skills and knowledge across a range of subjects. They are well prepared for their next stage of education. Staff check on pupils' learning regularly.

Teachers do not always use this information to plan learning which matches pupils' abilities. Knowledgeable governors provide a good... balance of challenge and support for leaders and staff. Staff are vigilant in ensuring pupils' safety and well-being.

Pupils feel safe in school and learn how to keep themselves safe outside school. The school's experienced pastoral team provides valuable support for pupils' social and emotional health and well-being. Disadvantaged pupils and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress.

Teachers ensure that pupils read regularly and with good understanding. Pupils learn to write for a range of different purposes. They develop their skills in spelling, punctuation and grammar.

Some pupils lack confidence and accuracy when using these skills in their independent writing. Changes to how teachers develop pupils' reasoning skills in mathematics are starting to have an impact and standards are rising. Leaders have taken positive steps to improve attendance, but some pupils miss school regularly, including disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND.

Children in the early years enjoy their learning and make good progress. However, the activities that staff plan for children's independent play sometimes lack challenge. Children in the early years do not have enough opportunities to practise and develop their early writing skills.
