Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The Executive Headteacher provides visionary and inspirational leadership. She motivates the staff well and gets the best from them. The school has improved significantly since the previous inspection.

Standards have risen. Most pupils now make expected rates of progress and many make even better progress, particularly in mathematics and writing. The quality of teaching has improved.

Most teaching is good and some is outstanding. Most pupils behave well and try very hard with their work. Pupils say they feel safe in school and that they would have someone to turn to in school if they encountered any difficulties.

Older ...pupils are encouraged to care for the younger pupils. For example, Playground Leaders play a part in helping to keep playtimes safe and happy. They maturely run a range of group activities, explaining that 'if someone does not have anyone to play with, they can always come and play with us'.

Senior leaders and governors have a clear understanding of how well the school is doing. They set high expectations and give the school very clear direction for the future. The school's leadership has been significantly strengthened by its developing collaborative practice with its partner school.

The school has benefitted from the sharing of expertise in many key areas, but is now increasingly sharing its own strengths within the school and with other schools in the locality. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is not yet outstanding. Occasionally, teachers do not check what pupils know and understand well enough.

This means pupils are sometimes given work that is too hard or too easy for them. Pupils make slower progress in reading than they do in mathematics and writing. Standards in reading are rising, but they remain broadly average.
