This is a good school The school is well led and managed.

The headteacher provides strong leadership. She knows the school well and has a clear vision for its future development. Leaders and managers, including governors, are effective in making sure that teaching and pupils' achievement are improving.

Teaching, pupils' progress and the quality of leadership and management have all improved since the previous inspection. Pupils behave well and have good attitudes towards learning. Members of staff form good relationships with them and set a good example.

The school's work to keep pupils safe is outstanding. Consequently, pupils feel very safe at schoo...l and are very knowledgeable about how to stay safe. The quality of teaching is good.

Teachers are particularly skilled in helping pupils to extend their vocabulary. They also manage behaviour well so that pupils are keen to learn. Children achieve well in the Reception class because they thoroughly enjoy learning.

Their behaviour is exemplary. Pupils make good progress across the school and do especially well in reading. Standards in reading, writing and mathematics are broadly average by the end of Year 6.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers do not always make clear what pupils of differing ability are expected to learn next or give them, especially the most able, suitably challenging work. Not all pupils form letters correctly or write neatly. They do not have enough opportunity to check and improve their written work.
