Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good and sometimes outstanding progress. Achievement improved significantly during the last school year and pupils are continuing to do as well in the current year.

Teaching is consistently good, with some outstanding practice. Very effective action by leaders has resulted in on-going improvements in teaching since the school's previous inspection. Pupils who speak English as an additional language, pupils with special educational needs and pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium funding are all supported extremely well to make outstanding progress.

Pupils with differing backgrounds and beliefs learn together happil...y. Their behaviour is excellent, attendance is above average and pupils feel safe and secure in school. A parent's comment that 'the school is central to this community', was typical of views expressed by adults and children.

The headteacher is an outstanding leader, who is strongly supported by a talented leadership team, by knowledgeable and effective governors and by all of the staff. Leaders keep a very systematic check on the impact and quality of teaching and the curriculum to ensure that pupils' needs are met well. This is driving improvements forward vigorously and helping pupils to achieve increasingly well.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : The overall quality of teaching is good. It is improving continuously, but it is not yet consistently outstanding. This is the main reason why pupils' achievement across the school is also good, rather than outstanding.

More time is needed for some improvements to impact fully, all across the school. More work is needed, for example, in Key Stage 1 to help more-able pupils to reach the higher levels by the end of Year 2.
