Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Children enter the school with skills that are typical for their age and get a very good start to their education due to a creative and stimulating learning environment. Pupils make good progress throughout the school to leave in Year 6 with standards that are well above average.

Pupils who are disabled and or have a special educational need also make good progress because the school has been active in improving teaching to ensure the needs of these pupils are fully met. Pupils entitled to support from the pupil premium funding also make good progress because the money has been spent wisely on individual learning support, ensuring they have equal...ity of opportunity to achieve well. Teaching is good.

Pupils enjoy learning independently in the open-plan classrooms. Information communication technology is used well. All staff use well the school's good quality resources in order to develop pupils' creative and physical skills well.

Behaviour and safeguarding are exemplary. Pupils have an extremely good understanding of right and wrong and how to stay safe. The school's curriculum provides excellent support for pupils' personal development.

The headteacher provides strong leadership and empowers staff to take on responsibility. Staff skills are developed well and this has enhanced the quality of teaching and raised achievement. Leaders and governors work together effectively and this is an improving school.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is not consistently good or better. The pace in some lessons is not always brisk and work set for the more able is not always hard enough. Pupils do not always know how to make their work better.

The teaching of letters and the sounds that they make (phonics) is not fully effective because tasks are not always set at the right level to meet pupils' learning needs.
