Middle leaders support the work of senior leaders well. They have the ability to improve the quality of teaching and pupils' outcomes further. Teachers are supported effectively by their subject leaders and demonstrate good subject knowledge.

Pupils are courteous and friendly. The very large majority of pupils enjoy their learning. This is supported by positive relationships between pupils and staff.

Teachers' planning is effective because it takes account of pupils' needs and starting points. Tasks and learning opportunities engage pupils and help them to embed prior knowledge alongside learning new skills. Pupils' attendance has improved.
