Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school There has been significant change in staffing since the last inspection. The executive headteacher and governors identified what needed to improve and are driving up standards. Leaders use assessment information to check the progress pupils make across key stages.

This is helping teachers to set tasks which challenge pupils. Subject leaders are ambitious to raise standards in their subjects. They have established a consistent approach to teaching.

Teachers use questioning and demonstration effectively to move pupils on with their learning. Stimulating topics help to bring learning to life. Leaders for pupils with special educational needs... and/or disabilities (SEND) and disadvantaged pupils have a good understanding of their needs.

These pupils are making strong progress as a result. Additional support is provided for pupils who need support with their social and emotional needs. This helps them to be successful in their work and social interactions.

Pupils are very respectful of each other. They are keen to take part in lessons and show perseverance and resilience in their learning. Leaders have established a curriculum grounded in the school's values.

Pupils learn well across all subjects and make the links between topics when appropriate. The development of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural education helps pupils to have a well-rounded view of the world they live in. Staff in the early years use their comprehensive knowledge of the early years curriculum to plan for children's next steps in learning.

Children are enthusiastic to learn and work well as a team. Historically, the proportion of pupils achieving the expected combined standard at the end of key stage 2 has been below the national average. Not enough pupils have achieved at the higher standard.

Due to weaker teaching in the past, some pupils, in particular the most able pupils, have not made as much progress as they are capable of. Occasionally, the teaching of phonics is not precise enough to enable the weakest readers to make strong progress. Reading books are not always well matched to pupils' phonics knowledge.
