Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Strong, determined leadership by the headteacher has provided clear direction and brought about improvement.

After disappointing results in 2018, determined actions by leaders have resulted in almost all current pupils now making good progress across a range of subjects. Governors provide a high level of challenge and support for school leaders. Governors have a firm grasp of how effectively the pupil premium funding is spent.

Pupils behave well. They are welcoming and respectful and have good relationships with each other and staff. The quality of teaching across the school is good.

Leaders regularly review teaching and devise s...trategies to strengthen it. Teaching in the early years is good. Children make good progress from their typically low starting points.

Leaders are beginning to take action to strengthen the engagement of parents in children's learning. The provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. Leaders and teachers take every opportunity to reinforce these aspects of the school's work.

In most subjects, the curriculum enables pupils to make strong gains in subject-specific skills and knowledge. However, this is not the case in modern foreign languages, religious education (RE) and geography. In general, parents and carers are pleased with the school's work.

Nevertheless, a small proportion of parents have lost confidence in how leaders communicate with them when issues arise.
