Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. All pupils make good progress and achieve well from the time they join the school.

Teaching is good because teachers plan activities that the pupils find interesting and enjoyable. Teaching assistants boost pupils' achievement because they support individuals or guide the learning of small groups of pupils very well. Pupils enjoy school and attendance is good.

They say they feel safe and cared for well and most parents agree with this view. The behaviour of pupils is good because they respond well to the high expectations of staff. The headteacher offers strong and well -considered leadership.

The very small number of teachers a...nd the business manager all carry out a leadership role and support the headteacher very well. This means that the school is continuing to improve at a fast rate. The governing body makes an excellent contribution to leadership.

The expertise of the Chair of Governors has meant that governors have supported the school and asked searching questions of its leaders to make rapid progress in improving issues from the previous inspection. It is not yet an outstanding school because : More-able pupils do not make as much progress as they could do. Pupils do not write enough longer pieces of work.

At times teachers spend too much time talking when pupils could be getting on with their work. Not enough teaching is outstanding to drive progress at an even faster rate. There is too much focus on what pupils will do rather than on what they will learn.

Marking does not always make clear to pupils how to improve their work.
