Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. This is a very caring and welcoming school where pupils and staff feel valued and appreciated. There are very supportive relationships and a positive climate for learning.

Children make a good and sometimes outstanding start to school in the highly stimulating Early Years Foundation Stage. Pupils make good progress and achieve well across the school. Teaching is nearly always good and sometimes outstanding.

Pupils are proud of their school and have positive attitudes to learning. Their behaviour in lessons, and when playing outside, is good and sometimes outstanding. They feel safe.

The headteacher provides highly skilled leader...ship. Her high expectations, ambition and clear vision for making the school the best it can be are fully shared by senior leaders, staff and governors. This has led to many successful improvements since the last inspection.

As a result, the quality of teaching and the achievement of pupils have improved and standards are rising. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The quality of teaching is not always good enough to accelerate the progress of pupils, particularly the more-able. Feedback from teachers is not always as useful as it should be in helping pupils to improve their work.

Pupils do not always have sufficient opportunities to apply their writing and mathematical skills when working in other subjects. Not all subject leaders are fully involved in improving the quality of teaching and the amount of progress pupils make. School leaders do not always make clear how planned changes will improve pupils' quality of learning and progress.
