Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Teaching is good and is sometimes outstanding.

It is particularly strong in the Reception Year and in Years 5 and 6. Pupils make good progress throughout the school and achieve well. By the time they leave the school standards are above national averages.

Pupils are happy and well cared for by staff. They enjoy learning and are full of praise for the exciting extra-curricular activities particularly in music and sport. Parents also feel this is a good school and praise the way staff manage pupils' behaviour and keep them safe.

Pupils' good, and sometimes impeccable, behaviour in lessons helps them to make good progress. They are... eager to learn and try their very best to succeed. Around the school pupils are considerate and polite.

The school has improved both teaching and achievement since the previous inspection. This has been led strongly by the headteacher and governing body. Improvement is driven by a relentless focus on what is going on in classrooms and how it can be made even better.

Support for pupils whose circumstances make them vulnerable and those with special educational needs is highly effective. It is not yet an outstanding school because : There is not yet enough outstanding teaching and learning across the school. Activities in lessons are not always planned precisely enough to make pupils think hard.

This sometimes results in work that lacks challenge for some pupils. Pupils do not have enough opportunity to develop their thinking and engage in sustained activity independent of their teachers. Not all teachers use marking to help pupils see how they can improve further.
