Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Children achieve well in the Reception classes. They make particularly good progress in developing their speaking and social skills.

Pupils' achievement is rising. School records and work in pupils' books show that the great majority of those currently in the school are making good progress. Teaching is good and some is outstanding, especially in Year 2.

Proficient teaching assistants play an important part in the good progress pupils make. Pupils behave well and feel safe in school. They have positive attitudes to learning.

In Year 2, in response to their teachers' high expectations, pupils' behaviour is outstanding. The school... has improved since the previous inspection because of good leadership, including governance. The headteacher and governing body have realistic plans for the future.

They have high expectations and know what to do to make the school outstanding. Teachers and teaching assistants have excellent relationships with their pupils and plan interesting topics that make pupils keen to learn. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching does not always enable pupils to make rapid progress, especially in learning phonics (letter sounds to help them read and write).

Teachers mark pupils' work very well but do not make sure the suggested improvements are made. On occasions the most-able pupils do not have work to make them think hard. Under the guidance of the headteacher, other leaders are developing their roles well.

However, they are not routinely observing lessons so that they can help colleagues improve their practice further.
