Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, deputy headteacher and the teachers with responsibility for subjects have worked well as a team to make sure that the school has improved since the last inspection. Teachers plan activities that are interesting and suitably challenging for pupils of different abilities.

Current pupils make good progress over time. Achievement is particularly strong in reading and mathematics. The gaps between disadvantaged pupils and their classmates are closing quickly bec...ause of the personalised support they receive.

They are polite, confident and cheerful. They treat everyone they encounter with respect. Governors have been instrumental in securing the improvements in the school.

They effectively hold senior leaders to account for the achievement of different groups of pupils. Senior leaders, staff and governors make sure that pupils are kept safe. Pupils feel safe and know how to take care of themselves around the school and in the playground.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Occasionally, teaching is not of the highest quality and this slows the progress that some pupils make. Outcomes in writing are improving, but they are not as strong as in reading and mathematics. Pupils do not have sufficient chances to extend their writing skills in English and across different subjects and some do not present their written work neatly.

The attendance of a few disadvantaged pupils and pupils who have special educational needs or disability is rising but remains below average.
