Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and governors have a strong vision for the future of the school to help pupils to be successful. They have the support of the majority of parents and carers, who are largely positive about the school. Leaders know the strengths and weaknesses of the school well.

Training for staff is very effective. As a result, the quality of teaching is improving significantly. GCSE results in 2018 were well below those of other schools nationally.

Leaders have taken swift action to ensure that current pupils are doing much better. Current pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, are attaining the standards expected from their starting po...ints. Leaders set high expectations for behaviour and academic progress.

Pupils behave well and conduct themselves very well in lessons and around the school. High numbers of pupil exclusions have reduced significantly. Vulnerable pupils are supported well, and the school is highly inclusive.

Governors know the school very well. They challenge leaders very effectively about pupils' progress. There is a strong culture of praise.

Pupils are proud to have their achievements recognised. Pupils are confident, discuss their ideas well and are exceedingly courteous. Leaders encourage pupils to respect the diversity of people in society.

As a result, pupils are tolerant and respectful towards each other. Progress is improving in many subjects, but is not consistently strong in all, particularly art and technology at GCSE. In the main, teachers plan lessons well.

They provide valuable and constructive feedback to pupils. Consequently, the progress of all groups of pupils is improving. Teachers' effective questioning of pupils helps to deepen pupils' knowledge and understanding.

Pupils are not yet adept in spelling, punctuating and using grammar. Leaders have improved pupils' attendance for all groups. It is close to the national average.

However, those pupils who are frequently absent do not make enough progress. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), and those who are particularly vulnerable, are guided extremely well so that they make strong progress from their starting points. Safeguarding is highly effective.

Typically, pupils feel very safe and understand the risks when online and know how to keep themselves safe.
