Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher has established a positive culture of high expectations and has a clear understanding of what constitutes effective teaching and learning.

Therefore, pupils' outcomes are improving. Leaders are accurate in their evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the school. They are taking the correct action to drive further improvements.

Middle leaders are knowledgeable about their subjects. However, they do not always play a full part in improving teaching and pupils' outcomes, because they do not visit lessons often enough. Leaders have taken effective action to improve the teaching of reading and writing.

Current p...upils, including disadvantaged pupils, are making stronger progress in English. Pupils are usually taught well and make good progress. Where learning is effective, teachers have high expectations and regularly check pupils' progress Governors and leaders are not rigorous enough in holding the school to account to ensure that improvements are made in a timely manner and additional funding is spent effectively.

The happy atmosphere in the school reflects the way that leaders value and respect all members of the community. Pupils' behaviour in lessons and around the school is good. They feel safe and take good care of each other.

They are friendly, polite and courteous. Good leadership in the early years ensures that children achieve well and are prepared for learning in key stage1. The curriculum is broad and balanced.

It provides pupils with rich experiences which make learning enjoyable. Pupils' emotional and social needs are met very well because of the wide-ranging provision leaders have in place. Teachers and senior leaders do not make good use of their tracking and assessment information to set ambitious targets for all year groups and pupils.

In mathematics, work does not provide a consistent level of challenge for pupils. Too little attention is given to some aspects of the mathematics curriculum, such as developing pupils' reasoning skills.
