Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage settle quickly and do well due to a caring environment and a varied range of exciting activities both indoors and outside. All pupils make good progress overall because the quality of teaching has improved significantly.

The enjoyment of reading is exceedingly well promoted. School leaders show great determination and are highly effective in driving the school forward. They ensure that all staff have access to high quality professional development.

The curriculum is rich and widens the pupils' knowledge and understanding of the world. It also contributes very well towards the spiritual, moral, ...social and cultural development of all pupils, preparing them for the next stage in learning. Behaviour is exemplary.

Pupils demonstrate a good deal of respect and care for each other and the adults they work with. They approach their work with energy and enthusiasm. Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Achievement is good overall rather than outstanding. While an increasing number of pupils make better than expected progress, the proportion doing so in mathematics is not yet high enough. Teaching is not yet outstanding.

This is mainly because in a small number of mathematics lessons, the work set by teachers does not provide the right levels of challenge for pupils' different abilities and the pace of learning slows. Pupils in Year 2 are not yet applying their joined up handwriting skills to all their work.
