Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Pupils achieve well in English and mathematics and make good progress from their starting points. There has been a marked improvement in attainment in English and mathematics this year. High attaining pupils achieve well because : teachers have an accurate understanding of what pupils need to do next in their learning.

Teaching is good and sometimes outstanding. Teaching assistants provide caring, confident and effective support for pupils. Good quality marking ensures that pupils have a clear understanding of how well they are learning and what they need to do to improve.

Clear routines and expectations mean that children settl...e quickly in the Reception year. Pupils want to do their best and behave well. They feel very secure and valued.

The headteacher and senior leaders have a clear vision for the school's development which is shared by all staff. Staff have high expectations of themselves, as well as the pupils, and all are involved in the drive for further improvement. Governors know the school well and provide good levels of support and challenge for school leaders.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : There is not enough outstanding teaching. In a small number of lessons, pupils are given too much time to complete a task and few lose concentration. When this happens, their progress slows.

Occasionally, questioning is not used fully by teachers to explore and check pupils' understanding and to build more strongly on what they already know.
