Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and governors have taken effective action to improve teaching and outcomes following the disappointing results at the end of key stage 2 in 2016 and 2017.

Improvements to the quality of teaching and to the stability of staffing have led to improvements to the progress of pupils throughout the school. Current pupils are making good progress across a range of subjects. Although standards are improving for pupils in key stage 1, it is too early to see the full impact of improvements to teaching on raising standards, particularly in reading.

Teachers have good subject knowledge and provide activities that interest and engage pupils in... their learning. The positive relationships between staff and pupils promote pupils' self-confidence well and contribute to their good progress. Occasionally, teachers' expectations for pupils' learning are not clear enough or activities are not matched closely to pupils' abilities.

Pupils' conduct in classrooms and around the school is good. Pupils say that they enjoy school and that they feel safe. Leaders and staff work hard to bring about improvements to behaviour for pupils who find managing their own behaviour difficult.

This helps to reduce the number of fixed-term exclusions. However, leaders acknowledge that this is an area for further improvement. Leaders provide a broad and balanced curriculum which engages pupils' interest.

Children in the early years get off to a good start. They make good progress, and most are well prepared for starting Year 1.
