Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher's calm, considered and caring leadership unites the staff and governors in a concerted and successful drive to bring about school improvement. Subject leaders have a good understanding of their roles and responsibilities and a clear focus on what needs to be done to improve pupils' outcomes further.

Governors make a strong contribution to the vision and rigour that is moving the school forward. During their time at the school, pupils make good progress from their starting points. Disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities make the same good progress as others.

Teachers carefully c...heck what pupils know and plan thoroughly to meet the needs of different groups of pupils. Pupils are keen to learn because the school's curriculum interests and engages them through a wide range of experiences and hands-on learning opportunities, particularly in science, art and physical education. Pupils' attendance is consistently above average.

Pupils behave well and get on well with each other. Children make a good start to their education in the early years. They benefit from interesting and motivating activities that they enjoy.

These help them to learn confidently. In all years, including the Reception Year, the school's caring ethos is reflected in the mutually respectful relationships between pupils and staff. Leaders and staff make sure that all pupils feel safe and well cared for.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not all teaching is of the same consistently high quality as some of the strongest teaching in the school. Teachers do not always use their accurate assessment of pupils' progress precisely enough to deepen and extend pupils' understanding. Rapid improvements in leadership and management systems across the school, although effective, are not yet fully embedded in how the school functions.
