Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Pupils make good progress from their starting points.

The standards they reach in reading, writing and mathematics are rising. This is the case for all groups of pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. Teachers engage pupils with activities that they enjoy and this means pupils concentrate well in lessons.

Teachers question pupils well and use these opportunities to check how well pupils are doing and to keep pupils focused on their learning. Pupils' conduct is good. This is the case in lessons and around school.

They demonstrate positive attitudes to learning, seen... by their engagement in lessons. The welfare and personal development of pupils are good. Both parents and pupils are happy that pupils are safe and feel well cared for at school.

Attendance is well above the average, showing how much pupils enjoy school. The links that school makes with parents are very strong and parents have a very positive view of school. Leaders have worked effectively to make the improvements identified at the last inspection.

Consequently, teaching and pupils' outcomes have improved and are now good. Governors have a clear understanding of what the school's challenges have been and what improvements the school continues to make. They also pay close attention to the protocols in place to keep pupils safe, to how teaching is monitored and to the impact teaching is having on pupils' progress.

They challenge leaders robustly and have helped the headteacher and her team make the necessary improvements since the last inspection. It is not yet an outstanding school because : In a small number of classes, the work that leaders have done to improve teaching has not had rapid enough impact and this means some teaching requires further improvement. At times, opportunities are missed to ensure that mathematics is regularly reinforced in the broader curriculum areas.

Some teachers' checks on pupils' work do not fully address pupils' needs and subsequent teaching activities do not meet pupils' needs closely or give pupils the chance to improve their work independently.
