Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and her leadership team have shown considerable energy and determination in bringing about substantial improvements since the last inspection. The quality of teaching has improved strongly and is now good.

There has been significant improvement in the performance of pupils at the end of key stage 1 and key stage 2 in reading, writing and mathematics. Most current pupils are making good progress across a range of subjects, including English and mathematics. The vast majority of pupils behave well and show positive attitudes to their learning.

Trustees and governors have a clear overview of standards. They have played an imp...ortant role in ensuring that school leaders have secured rapid improvement. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress.

The same is true of pupils who are disadvantaged. The curriculum is broad and balanced and enables pupils to acquire a wide range of knowledge, skills and understanding. Children in the early years now make strong progress from their starting points.

Leaders ensure that there is a strong culture of safeguarding in the school. Pupils feel safe and know how to stay safe. Subject leaders now have a clear picture of standards in their subjects and systematically check on the quality of teaching and learning.

Leaders support pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development effectively. Although current progress in writing is good, it is not as strong as progress in reading and mathematics. The progress of the most able pupils is not as strong as it could be.

The strategies that leaders have used to reduce absence and persistent absence, though partially successful, have not had a positive enough effect.
