Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, ably supported by senior leaders and governors, leads the school with clear vision and strong ambition. High expectations for pupils’ learning and well-being are at the heart of the school’s developments. The thoughtfully designed curriculum motivates pupils to develop their knowledge and skills across a wide range of subjects. Pupils enjoy many experiences that enrich their learning. Strong teaching ensures that pupils achieve good outcomes and make well-above-average progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of key stage 2. The early years provision is outstanding. Children make rapid and sustained progress from lower-than-typical starting points because : teaching is precisely matched to their individual needs. Safeguarding is effective. Pupils are taught to keep themselves safe by well-trained and knowledgeable staff. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress from their individual starting points because they receive effective support. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. Pupils are kind and thoughtful. They are very understanding of each other’s differences. Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. They conduct themselves impeccably throughout the school day. They show great respect for each other and staff in the school. Pupils’ personal development and welfare are good. This is a friendly and happy school. Pupils care for each other and feel well supported by staff. Occasionally, written records of pupils’ welfare do not provide leaders with sufficient detail to inform their strategic overview of this work. The assessment of pupils’ learning in subjects across the wider curriculum is not as well developed as it is in English and mathematics. As a result, sometimes work is not matched precisely enough to pupils’ needs, particularly for the most able pupils. Most disadvantaged pupils make good progress from their starting points. However, the most able disadvantaged pupils do not achieve as well as others in English by the end of key stage 2.
