Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and governors have shown determination to improve all aspects of the school's performance since the previous inspection. They are ambitious and have high expectations about what the pupils can achieve.

Teachers plan lessons that engage pupils and move their learning forward. As a result, pupils make good progress from their starting points. Pupils' attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is high.

Pupils of all abilities are well challenged. They receive work that makes them think. Teachers used questioning very effectively to develop pupils' thinking further.

Leaders are highly effective in promoting pupils...' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils develop an informed understanding of global issues and show high levels of respect and consideration for others. Pupils are extremely polite and their behaviour is excellent.

Pupils are, rightly, very proud of their school. They enjoy learning, attend school regularly and are independent, confident and articulate. Leaders ensure that pupils are safe and happy, including through developing positive mental health strategies.

Outcomes at key stage 1 and key stage 2 have been high over the past three years. The proportion achieving the higher standards is continuing to improve, with more pupils across the school working at a deeper level. The teaching of mathematics has improved significantly.

Pupils are well challenged and are making strong progress. Parents and carers say that they have noticed their children's confidence and resilience in mathematics improving. Due to the significant increase in mathematics challenge, at times, some teachers are not as confident in identifying misconceptions because : their subject knowledge is not as strong as the specialist mathematics teacher.

Pupils benefit from a rich curriculum which deepens their learning. They are given plentiful opportunities to develop writing and mathematical skills across the curriculum. However, the quality of the curriculum teaching is not fully consistent across the whole school, as some teaching of the curriculum is not as strong as it could be.

Children get off to a strong start in the early years and make good progress. Children leave Reception very well prepared for Year 1. Parental involvement has improved significantly.
