Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils achieve well from their average starting points. Most pupils achieve expected standards by the end of Year 6 and a high percentage of pupils exceed this. Good teaching, teachers’ knowledge of pupils’ past progress and high quality support and interventions enable all groups of pupils to make good progress. Pupils know what they need to do to improve their work because staff mark their work thoroughly and make the next learning steps clear. Pupils are polite and courteous and their good attitudes and behaviour make a significant contribution to their achievement. Pupils say that they feel safe in school. Leadership and management are good. Skilled leaders and governors have focused upon improvement through monitoring and evaluation, staff appraisal and training, so that most pupils reach high standards and make good progress. Pupils’ good spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is evident through all aspects of the very broad and exciting curriculum. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is not yet consistently of the highest standards to promote outstanding progress. Information and communication technology is not yet sufficiently developed to support pupils’ independent research skills. Subject leaders have not yet developed all aspects of monitoring and evaluation in order to help pupils make outstanding progress.
