Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Effective leadership, including governance, has improved the quality of teaching and rates of pupils' progress.

Leaders have established thorough systems to check the progress pupils make and to identify those in danger of falling behind. Changes to the curriculum and training for staff have contributed to rising standards in reading, writing and mathematics. Most pupils now make good progress in a range of subjects.

Pupils' behaviour is good. They say they feel safe because the school's work to keep them safe is effective. Teaching, learning and assessment are consistently good.

Teachers make sure that pupils enjoy their learnin...g. Relationships are good. Staff ensure strong pastoral care with a positive effect on pupils' emotional and social development.

The rich curriculum and extra activities promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as well as their personal development. Disadvantaged pupils now do well because a good level of support is given to those who need it. As a result, they make strides in their learning.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Some weaknesses remain in mathematics. In particular, some lower attaining pupils make slower progress than their classmates; and some of the most able pupils do not have the opportunities to apply what they have learned and to deepen their mathematical understanding. Subject leaders do not yet use the school's systems fully to analyse how well pupils are doing in their subjects.

The school's development plans do not include milestones against which leaders can check the progress made towards their improvement targets.
