Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Following the school's last inspection, there was a decline in the quality of teaching, leading to a drop in the standards achieved by pupils. The headteacher and senior leaders have arrested this decline.

Recent improvements are ensuring that current pupils are making good progress. Leaders have successfully worked with the local authority to broker appropriate support to improve the quality of teaching. Teaching is now good.

Leaders recognise the differences that each pupil brings to the school. Their efforts to promote pupils' personal development and welfare are good. Pupils behave well in lessons and when moving around the school..../>
They are considerate of one another. Pupils have a thorough understanding of the behaviour systems in the school. Attendance has remained above the national average for several years.

Disadvantaged pupils and those with special education needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress. Pupils' outcomes are improving. Although progress in reading and writing declined at the end of key stage 2 in 2018, school performance information indicates an improving picture throughout the school.

The teaching of mathematics and English is good overall. However, sometimes pupils do not have enough opportunities to develop their writing and presentation skills across a range of subjects. Opportunities to apply mathematical skills in other subject areas, although improving, are also limited.

In key stage 1, the teaching of phonics is good. However, sometimes pupils do not have opportunities to learn new words in context. At time, adults' questioning does not enable pupils to develop and deepen their responses.

The teaching of science in key stage 1 is sometimes not challenging enough for the most able pupils. The curriculum prepares pupils well for life in modern Britain. Opportunities to develop pupils' spiritual, moral and social development are good.

However, pupils have limited opportunities to learn about different cultures and religions. Early years provision is good. A structured learning environment is in place across the Nursery and Reception classes.

Leaders have put effective measures in place to continue to improve children's poor moving and handling skills.
