Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and trustees have created a strong culture of improvement. Parents, carers, pupils and staff recognise the advancement since the school became an academy. They wholeheartedly support leaders' vision and ambition for the school and its pupils.

Staff are very well supported to continue developing their teaching and leadership expertise. They make use of a wide range of professional development opportunities on offer as part of the multi-academy trust. Leaders have introduced new approaches to the teaching of reading, writing and mathematics.

This is resulting in increasingly consistent and effective teaching. Consequently, current p...upils are achieving well. An increasing proportion are reaching and exceeding the expected standards for their age.

Phonics teaching is effective. Pupils who struggle to keep up with the programme's pace receive additional support to help them quickly catch up. However, staff miss opportunities to develop pupils' understanding of what they have read in their early stages of learning to read.

Children make a positive start to their learning in the early years. They make good progress and are well prepared for key stage 1. However, leaders do not have a consistent system for assessing children's learning.

In the early years and key stage 1, insufficient emphasis on the teaching of letter and number formation means that this skill is slow to develop. Adults and pupils have positive relationships, built on trust and mutual respect. Consequently, pupils behave well and have positive attitudes to their learning.

A strong sense of community and a wide range of experiences and opportunities mean that pupils develop as rounded individuals. Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted well. Pupils are enthused by the first-hand experiences which they encounter.

This contributes to their positive behaviour and good attendance. Attendance has improved and was in line with the national average by 2017/18. Work continues to further reduce persistent absence for disadvantaged pupils.
