Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Strong leadership by the headteacher and the deputy headteachers has provided a clear direction that has driven improvement.

Determined actions by leaders mean that almost all pupils are now making good progress across a range of subjects. However, attainment at key stage 2 in reading, while good, is not as strong as that in writing and mathematics. Leaders have used training effectively within the school to improve the quality of teaching.

As a result, this is now consistently good. Leaders conduct detailed assessment and provide effective support for those pupils new to the school and who speak English as an additional language. Over, these pupils make good progress.

The rich and vibrant environment and the challenges offered through the curriculum contribute to both the pupils' personal development and the good progress that they make. Governors have a wide range of skills and know the school well. They are supportive of the school and contribute to its continuous improvement.

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are well supported to make good progress from their starting points. Pupils generally demonstrate positive attitudes to their learning. Strong relationships between teachers and pupils contribute to pupils' growing confidence and the quality of learning.

Children in the early years make good progress. Increasing numbers of Reception children are attaining a good level of development, but this is still below national averages. Leaders of the early years have developed a varied and rich curriculum for Reception children which prepares them well for Year 1.

However, the nursery curriculum does not provide the youngest children with the same rich opportunities and experiences learning. The progress of disadvantaged pupils is improving. These pupils 'grow' personally, socially and academically due to the effectiveness of the tailored support offered by the school.

Attendance rates have improved. Leaders have taken a wide range of actions to improve the attendance of pupils, but absence and persistent absence rates are still too high. A strong culture of safeguarding exists throughout the school.

Procedures for keeping pupils safe are secure and clear. The pastoral support for pupils is a high priority for leaders.

Information about this school

This school is much larger than the average-sized primary school.

The number of pupils on roll has increased by around 10% in the last year. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium funding is higher than the national average. The majority of pupils are white British.

The proportion of pupils speaking English as an additional language is broadly in line with the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is broadly in line with the national average. The proportion of pupils who have an education, health and care plan is below average.

Pupil movement in and out of school is high. Increased numbers of pupils for whom English is an additional language join the school at times other than the usual starting point. This high mobility has a negative effect on national assessment outcomes.
