Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and governors have taken effective action to ensure that the quality of teaching and learning has improved since the previous inspection and is now good. From their different starting points, pupils across the school make good progress in a wide range of subjects, including reading, writing and mathematics.

Standards of pupils' attainment are rising. The middle leadership team has become a strength of the school. Pupils enjoy a rich curriculum that promotes their knowledge, understanding and good progress.

The provision in the early years is good. From their starting points, most children make good progress, some of which is rapid.... The most able children however are not challenged or supported well to attain the highest standards.

Most-able pupils' mastery of spelling and punctuation is not as strong as it ought to be. Similarly, too few of these pupils attain high standards in mathematics. Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school.

They speak positively about the levels of support, care and communication, particularly for pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. Teachers plan work that builds effectively on previous learning and ensure that pupils learn well. The school's policy on how teachers feed back to pupils is not yet fully implemented across all classes.

Pupils' excellent attitudes to learning and their conduct in and out of the classroom allow them to enjoy the opportunities presented to them during and beyond the school day. Leaders and governors have an accurate view of the school and know what needs to be done to improve further. Pupils feel safe in school and know how to keep safe when using online technology.

Pupils are highly respectful to each other and adults. They feel very proud of their achievements and support each other very effectively. They are safe and well prepared for the next steps in their education.

Pupils' attendance is broadly average and decisive action is ensuring that this is improving rapidly. However there remains a small group of pupils with persistent absence.
