Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Senior leaders have created an inclusive culture that has high expectations of staff and pupils.

These high expectations have led to improvements in the quality of teaching and pupils' outcomes since the last inspection. Achievement in key stages 1 and 2 is good, particularly in reading and writing. Gaps in achievement between those pupils who are disadvantaged and other pupils nationally at key stage 2 have closed in reading, writing and mathematics.

Teachers plan lessons well to meet the needs of their pupils and to ensure that pupils engage with their learning. To this end, teachers and adults provide pupils with effective support. The... provision in the early years is good, because : of the good leadership and the good-quality teaching that children receive.

Subject and phase leaders receive effective support from senior leaders. Pupils behave well. Pupils have positive relationships with their teachers and show great sensitivity to the needs of their peers.

Pupils' personal development is outstanding. Pupils have a profound understanding of their own spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The school engages well with parents to enable them to support their children in their learning.

Teachers and support staff provide effective care and guidance for those pupils with complex emotional or behavioural needs. Governance is highly effective. Governors have a precise understanding of the quality of the school's provision.

They provide support and challenge to all leaders in equal measure. It is not yet an outstanding school because : While attendance is rising, the proportion of pupils who are absent from school remains slightly above national levels, particularly for disadvantaged pupils. Some most-able pupils and pupils who speak English as an additional language do not make as much progress in mathematics as they should.
