Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and senior leaders sustain strong leadership during the current absence of the executive headteacher. Subject leaders make a strong contribution to school improvement and possess a secure understanding of current standards. The teaching ensures that pupils sustain good progress across the range of subjects taught. Reading and mathematics are taught consistently well. Teachers are less successful in providing pupils with the support they need to improve their spelling, grammar and handwriting. Teachers make sure that pupils understand what they are meant to be learning. They provide interesting lessons and insist that pupils work hard. However, the way teachers use what they know about pupils to adapt lessons is more variable. Some teaching is less successful in encouraging pupils who have social and emotional needs to stay focused on learning. This is because : leaders have not provided relevant training in this area. Additional funding for disadvantaged pupils and the primary physical education and sport premium are spent on the right priorities. Parents, carers and pupils are typically very positive about pupils’ behaviour. Pupils benefit from a wide range of opportunities in the curriculum to broaden their cultural horizons and become more familiar with British institutions. Pupils learn how to stay safe online and the school helps parents continue this work at home. The early years does a good job of helping most pupils make progress from typically low starting points. Safeguarding is effective because there is a shared understanding of agreed safeguarding procedures and a strong culture of vigilance. Governors work hard to gather extensive information about the school. However, they possess an overgenerous view of its current effectiveness and do not always check that staff receive the most recent updates.
