Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Under the headteacher's leadership, the staff team has worked successfully to create a calm, welcoming and happy school. Pupils say, 'Mr Griffiths is the boss and he's very kind to everyone.' Senior leaders have worked hard to improve teaching and outcomes.

Their monitoring has improved the quality of teaching, although some unproductive teaching remains. Most current pupils make strong progress in a range of subjects. Although outcomes are not yet good at key stage 2, the impact of improvements across the school demonstrates that its overall effectiveness is good.

Governors have an accurate overview of the school's strengths and areas fo...r improvement. They provide effective support and challenge for leaders. The curriculum provides a wide range of opportunities and experiences that deliver memorable moments for pupils.

For many subjects, the curriculum develops skills, knowledge and understanding at an appropriate level. Nevertheless, pupils would benefit from more opportunities to engage in a range of scientific enquiries. There are strengths in the quality of teaching and learning within the school.

This is clearly seen in the pupils' books. However, inconsistencies sometimes mean that work is not planned at the right level of challenge and this limits some pupils' ability to make the progress which they are capable of. Some pupils show care and pride in their work and present it to a high standard.

As yet, standards of presentation vary between classes and year groups. A very wide range of support, nurture and help is available for pupils who are disadvantaged or those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). This aids their educational, social and emotional development.

Subject leaders benefit from training to develop their leadership skills. Leaders of some subjects need further development to enable them to have greater impact on school improvement. Sometimes, pupils are limited in how they present their work.

The overuse of worksheets restricts pupils' ability to set their work out and to show their capabilities as an independent learner. The teaching of phonics is effective in providing pupils with early reading skills. Pupils of all ages read well.

They enjoy reading and read challenging vocabulary well, using effective strategies to help read unfamiliar words. Pupils can discuss the meanings of words and talk about the story in detail. Leaders in the early years have developed routines and a curriculum that recognises and responds to the needs of children entering the setting.

They make sure that high-quality teaching is a consistent part of each and every day. Adults in the early years are knowledgeable and skilled practitioners. They sensitively support and challenge children to grow and develop as independent, inquisitive confident and articulate learners.

Pupils enjoy school and feel safe. Most pupils behave well in lessons and value their learning.
