Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress from starting points that are often significantly below those typically found.

Their progress has rapidly improved since the last inspection due to consistently good-quality teaching. Attainment has risen over the last three years. In Year 6 in 2013 it was above average overall, and especially in reading.

This year, more pupils are on track to reach the higher levels in reading, writing and mathematics. Pupils' behaviour in and around the school is exemplary and this has a very positive impact on their learning. The school's work to ensure pupils' safety is excellent.

The improvements made to leadership... and pupils' achievement since the previous inspection show the school has the capacity to continue improving. The school has actively sought extra support, advice and training through a range of partnerships. This has had a very positive impact on the quality of teaching and learning.

The governing body has improved the way it challenges and supports leaders by developing an innovative system for closely checking the school's work. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The standard of boys' writing remains below that of the girls. Some teachers do not ask pupils searching questions in lessons to check the success of their teaching.

The school does not make effective use of the outdoor environment to support pupils' learning. Teachers' expectations of the quality of pupils' work are not high enough in some subjects.
