Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Pupils make good progress and achieve well in all subjects. By the time they leave school pupils’ overall standards of attainment are above average. Teaching is consistently good and there is some that is outstanding. Other adults in lessons are highly skilled and make a valuable contribution to pupils’ good progress. Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding in lessons and around the school. They are managed extremely well by all staff and say they feel very safe in school. The school promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very well. Senior leaders and governors do a good job. They have a very clear understanding of what the school does well and where improvement lies. They ensure that the management of performance results in improving teaching across the school. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not enough teaching is outstanding to drive pupils’ progress more rapidly. Occasionally, work in lessons is not matched accurately to pupils’ ability and expectations are not always high enough, particularly of the more able. The pace of learning slows in some lessons because teachers spend too long at the start of lessons, going over work already learned or explaining the tasks to come.
