Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, well supported by other leaders, governors and the multi-academy trust, has set high expectations for all aspects of school life. As a result, leaders have ensured that outcomes for pupils have improved since the school opened as an academy and pupils' safety and well-being are at the heart of the school's work. Pupils attain standards that are above the national averages by the time they leave in Year 6, particularly in reading.

While outcomes for the most able pupils are improving, the work that these pupils are set is still not sufficiently challenging. Questions do not always require them to think deeply. The teaching of early... reading has greatly improved.

As a result, there has been a dramatic improvement in the proportion of pupils achieving the expected standard in the Year 1 phonics screening check. Children make a positive start in the early years and settle quickly and happily. Teaching is well matched to their needs and abilities.

Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities make good progress from their starting points. This is the result of strong leadership and support that is well matched to pupils' individual needs. Pupils are well behaved, polite and caring towards each other.

They have a good awareness of how to keep themselves safe. Pupils respond positively to the many opportunities that the school offers them, including a wide range of sporting activities. Leaders undertake a range of monitoring activities and have a generally accurate understanding of the school's strengths and weaknesses.

However, they do not fully use the outcomes of their monitoring to evaluate the impact of the school improvement priorities on further improving teaching. Leaders are aware that additional support can be deployed more effectively to support the learning needs of pupils in large classes. While the overwhelming majority of parents would recommend the school, a number expressed concern about this aspect of the school's work.

Teachers ensure that that there is a good range of opportunities for pupils to apply their writing skills in meaningful and extended pieces of writing. However, opportunities for pupils to use their mathematical knowledge in problem solving are not as well developed. Attendance is consistently above the national average.

Parents recognise the importance that regular attendance has in supporting their children's learning.
