Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, ably assisted by her deputy, has rapidly raised standards.

Their unrelenting approach and accurate analysis of strengths and weaknesses have played a key role in improving the school. Middle leadership has improved strongly since the last inspection. Middle leaders share senior leaders' drive and determination to improve standards.

Staff morale is high. Teachers are overwhelmingly positive about the leadership of the school. Improvements in writing, especially for boys, have been rapid.

This is because leaders have carefully analysed practice and have focused on what helps individual pupils to improve. Pupils' at...tendance is improving and the proportion of pupils who are absent persistently is decreasing quickly. The wider curriculum provides a range of experiences that pupils enjoy.

Provision for the most able pupils is improving across the majority of classes. However, too few pupils are currently working at greater depth by the end of key stage 2. Provision in the early years is good, and as a result, children make a positive start in school.

Teachers have high expectations of pupils. Pupils are rightly proud of their work. Governors know the school well.

They provide strong challenge and support, and have a clear overview of the school's strengths and weaknesses. Weak teaching has been eradicated. Teachers' professional development has been carefully tailored to meet individual needs.

Teachers continually strive to improve. The needs of disadvantaged pupils are well met. They make good and, on occasion, rapid progress.

Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities make excellent progress. The additional support they receive is well targeted to meet both academic and personal needs. Pastoral care for pupils has a positive effect on their personal development.

Pupils feel safe and secure. Safeguarding is effective. Progress in reading does not yet match the rapid progress made in writing, especially for boys.

At key stage 1, teachers do not consistently identify basic errors, meaning some mistakes are repeated.
