Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher is well supported by the new deputy headteacher and has high expectations of pupils and teachers. Together they provide determined and effective leadership. Senior leaders have taken resolute action to rectify concerns identified in the previous inspection.

They have raised expectations and brought about significant improvement to secure good teaching and pupils' achievement. Governors provide strong levels of challenge to staff leaders and help them to identify and address the right priorities for improvement. The school's senior and middle leadership teams make effective contributions to the improvement of teaching and learning.<>
However, some are new to their responsibilities and have yet to make a full impact. All staff implement rigorous safeguarding procedures and promote supportive relationships with the pupils. As a result, pupils enjoy school and feel safe.

The curriculum is well planned to promote the school motto, 'Nurture, Inspire, Flourish'. Teachers plan exciting learning activities for pupils. However, some teachers do not develop the pupils' mathematical skills sufficiently across the wider curriculum.

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) achieve well. They receive effective support that is much appreciated by parents. The behaviour of pupils is good.

Pupils are polite and work happily and supportively together. They are very proud of their school. Pupils make strong progress in a range of subjects, including in phonics, writing and science.

New approaches to the teaching of reading and mathematics are improving pupils' progress, especially that of the most able pupils. However, some lower attainers and disadvantaged pupils are not sufficiently developing their numeracy skills and their breadth and understanding of vocabulary. Children get off to a good start and settle confidently into school routines in the early years.

They thrive because of the good teaching and high-quality care they receive.
