Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher has successfully created an environment in which pupils thrive in their personal development and learning. Other leaders and staff share his vision, enthusiasm and commitment to develop well-rounded individuals.

The curriculum provides extensive opportunities for pupils' personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The school takes very good care of pupils and they behave exceptionally well. Early years provision is innovative and enables the children to make good progress.

The quality of teaching is good overall. There are examples of outstanding practice where teachers set very high expectations, model th...e required skills and provide incisive feedback to enable all pupils to excel. Since the last inspection in 2011, pupils have attained consistently high standards in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of key stage 2.

They make particularly good progress in mathematics. The previous gap in achievement between disadvantaged pupils and others in the school and nationally is closing rapidly. Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities make at least good progress due to very effective specialist provision and support.

Governors passionately support the school's values and hold senior leaders to account to sustain high standards. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils' progress and attainment across the early years and key stage 1 are not consistently strong, especially for the most able pupils. Some teachers do not evaluate the progress of individual pupils and groups of pupils from their starting points and make sure they reach challenging standards.

Some lessons do not get off to a prompt start. Some leaders and managers do not check and evaluate the impact of teaching on the learning of individual pupils and groups of pupils. The most effective practice in teaching is not shared across key stages.

A few parents do not feel well informed about their children's progress.
