Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Governors have a clear understanding of how well the school is doing.

They carefully check all aspects of the leaders' work and provide good levels of support and challenge. The executive headteacher and head of school lead with passion and commitment. The school is a caring community, based on Christian values, where the needs of the pupils are well met.

Leadership responsibilities are shared among the staff. The enthusiasm, commitment and skills of senior and middle leaders ensure that the school has the capacity to improve further. Leadership of the early years is strong.

Staff in the Nursery and Reception classes provide exci...ting activities which are matched closely to the children's needs and enable them to make good progress. Teaching is good. Teachers check pupils' learning regularly and provide them with careful explanations to move learning on.

A rich curriculum is enhanced by a broad range of visits in the locality, arts events and learning outside the classroom. Pupils feel safe and their behaviour is exemplary. Pupils of different ages get on very well together and support each other.

Their attitudes to learning make a significant contribution to good achievement across key stages. There is an extremely successful partnership with other schools. This has enabled the school to make swift and sustained improvements since the last inspection.

For example, the quality of teaching and pupils' outcomes are both stronger. Parents hold the school in high regard. Written and verbal praise received by the inspection team was overwhelmingly positive and heartening.

Outcomes in history and geography are not as strong as those achieved in other subjects.
