Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The new leadership team has established an ethos of high expectations within a caring and inclusive environment. They ensure that pupils receive a good standard of education.

As one parent put it: 'the headteacher and his team have really turned this school around.' Across the school, pupils make strong progress. Teaching develops their knowledge effectively and inspires them to work hard.

Leaders and staff continuously seek ways to improve the quality of pupils' learning. The leadership team is skilled in helping staff to develop their teaching skills. Leaders' work is sharply focused on making sure that teaching caters for pupils' abili...ties, including the most able and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

Standards are high in reading, writing and mathematics. An above-average proportion of Year 6 pupils attained the expected standard in the 2018 key stage 2 assessments. High-quality teaching means that pupils who have fallen behind in the past are making up for lost ground.

Disadvantaged pupils and those with SEND make the same good progress as their peers. Leaders and governors use additional funding well and ensure that it makes a positive difference to these pupils' outcomes. Pupils are confident and considerate individuals.

They are rightly proud of the work they do to help others, both in the school and in the wider community. Children in the early years usually make strong progress. They are well prepared for Year 1.

Sometimes, however, teaching does not challenge children as much as it could, especially in the outdoor area and in writing. The curriculum is broad and stimulating. It combines experiences which contribute effectively to both pupils' academic outcomes and their personal development.

In most subjects, the curriculum enables pupils to make strong gains in subject-specific skills and knowledge. However, this is not embedded in history, geography and design and technology. Safeguarding is effective.

Leaders ensure that pupils behave well and deal effectively with any poor behaviour, including bullying. However, leaders do not analyse information on behaviour systematically nor identify where further improvements could be made. Most parents and carers are pleased with the school's work.

Nevertheless, a small proportion of parents have lost confidence in the school's work to promote pupils' behaviour and welfare. On occasions, leaders do not inform parents enough about the school's work in this respect.
