Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school After a period of instability, leaders and governors now provide clear direction for the school. This has led to improvement in all aspects of the school's work.

Senior leaders have a positive influence on pupils' attainment and progress, which are now rapidly improving. They are ambitious for the school's further development. Safeguarding in the school is a strength.

Pupils feel safe due to effective procedures. Staff are vigilant and receive regular safeguarding training. Pupils in all year groups enjoy reading.

They read a wide range of books and make good progress. The school's detailed tracking information gives a clear indi...cation of the progress pupils make. Consequently, leaders and governors identify any groups who fall behind.

The small proportion of pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities make strong progress. Leaders have developed the school's core values well. Pupils speak confidently of these and how they apply them to their lives.

Middle leaders receive effective training to enable them to lead their subjects well. They use ongoing assessment well to improve pupils' attainment and progress. Pupils' conduct around school is good.

They are polite and show respect to each other. Relationships between pupils and adults are positive. Learning in the early years is a strength.

Adults' expectations are high and children achieve well. Leaders have improved the quality of teaching and the accuracy of assessment. Consequently, pupils make strong progress.

However, there is still some legacy of underachievement, resulting in gaps in pupils' learning. As a result of the effective curriculum, pupils' knowledge in a range of subjects is good. However, pupils do not gain the necessary skills and knowledge they need in geography.

The most able pupils do not make enough progress to enable them to achieve at higher standards. This is because teachers do not always provide them with learning that is sufficiently challenging.

Information about this school

Most pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is low, as is the proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium funding is below the national average.

The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is below average. In 2017, the school did not meet the government's current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6.
