Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher inspires an ethos where all staff are focused upon pupils' well-being and their wider personal development. This is a school that is truly at the centre of the community and that is held in extremely high regard by parents.

Senior leaders have worked successfully to overcome a decline in performance in recent years. As a result of effective teaching and well-planned support, pupils make good and improving progress. Subject leaders have introduced new approaches in mathematics that are being successfully implemented across year groups.

As a result, pupils achieve well in mathematics. Leaders and teachers have worked assiduo...usly to improve pupils' progress in reading. Through a sustained focus in lessons and in additional interventions, pupils make good progress.

Leaders secure high levels of engagement and support from pupils and parents. As a result, standards of behaviour are high and pupils attend well. Governors know the community and their school extremely well.

Their expertise and experience provide leaders with an effective balance of support and challenge. Close attention to the needs of vulnerable pupils, including pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), enables them to make good progress. Pupils access rich experiences in the wider curriculum that builds their knowledge and widens their horizons.

Middle leaders are becoming increasingly effective in leading school improvement. They are less experienced in monitoring the effect of new strategies on classroom practice. Although improving, pupils' progress in writing is not consistently strong across classes.

On occasions, pupils do not develop their handwriting skills or abilities to write at length thoroughly enough. Provision in the early years requires improvement. Teaching in Reception class does not develop children's emerging reading and writing skills strongly enough.

Although increasing proportions of pupils are working at greater depths of understanding, teaching does not provide consistent challenge for pupils. They do not develop subject-specific knowledge in science, history and geography in sufficient depth
