Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The school has been well led through a time of expansion and significant change. Leaders have remained steadfast, prioritising pupils and families throughout. The school is well placed to improve further.

Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent. Pupils fizz with enthusiasm, mimicking their teachers' passion for learning. The positive attitudes displayed in class ensure that not a moment is wasted.

Behaviour is outstanding. Pupils write well for a range of purposes. They construct their texts carefully and use this to support their thinking and communication in a range of subjects, such as the humanities.

Leaders have... stemmed a decline in reading progress. The teaching of phonics in early years and key stage 1 has been revitalised. Older pupils read complex and mature texts that test and expand their skills and understanding.

As a result, pupils' progress has improved. Children in early years get off to a strong start and develop excellent attitudes and behaviours that are in line with those of other pupils in the school. Children are well prepared for the challenges of Year 1.

The unique curriculum enables pupils to develop their academic, artistic and physical understanding and abilities. The wide range of trips, visits and themed weeks sparks pupils' interest and provides them with many experiences they will never forget. Pupils possess strong calculation skills and, increasingly, use these to solve problems and reason.

In a small proportion of classes, pupils have gaps in their mathematical understanding, which has slowed their progress. Teachers typically use their strong understanding of pupils' needs to develop well-judged sequences of lessons. Nevertheless, some learning is not as effectively planned and does not build well enough on pupils' prior knowledge.

Additional funding is used well to help pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). The accurate identification of pupils' needs and the skilled support from staff help these pupils to thrive.
