Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leadership and management are good. The headteacher has ensured that the school's vision for 'Excellence in caring, sharing and learning' has developed since the previous inspection. Leaders and governors are ambitious in their expectations for pupils, staff and the school community Governors provide effective support to senior leaders.

They know the school and monitor its work carefully. The leadership team have maintained the good quality of education at the school since the last inspection. Leaders monitor teaching but checks are not always rigorous enough to ensure advice is followed.

Pupils' progress in English and mathematics is tra...cked frequently to ensure no pupil falls behind. Almost all the pupils make good progress and are working at or above age-related expectations. Teaching is consistently good.

Teachers demonstrate good subject knowledge. However, in the early years and key stage 1, teaching does not consistently challenge some of the most able pupils to enable them to make the progress they are capable of. Pupils have good literacy skills but the presentation of their work is more variable.

Pupils who have special educational needs and/ or disabilities make good progress from their starting points. Their learning needs are accurately assessed and appropriate support helps them to learn well. The progress of disadvantaged pupils is good.

Strategies are well devised to support their learning and personal development. Pupils enjoy a rich and broad curriculum. An extensive range of enrichment activities excites pupils and raises their aspirations to learn.

Opportunities for spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and the understanding of British values are extensive. The respect and tolerance displayed by pupils is a strength. Pupils' personal development, behaviour and welfare are excellent.

Pupils are polite and courteous to staff, visitors and each other. They display great enthusiasm for learning. Pupils are proud to belong to their school and they appreciate its close and caring community.

Pupils' safety is paramount. Systems in place are rigorous and regularly checked to keep pupils as safe as possible. Outcomes for pupils in Year 1, in phonics screening checks, are above the national average.
