Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Achievement is good. From their individual starting points pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. Teaching is usually good and there are examples of outstanding teaching.

Teachers have an accurate understanding of how well pupils are learning. Interesting activities are provided which enable pupils to achieve well. Pupils' behaviour in and around the school is good.

Pupils have a positive attitude toward learning and they enjoy school, which is reflected in the above-average attendance. Pupils feel safe and are kept safe in school. The curriculum interests pupils and gets the best out... of them.

There is also an effective programme for promoting pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Consequently, pupils are considerate and respectful towards adults and each other. The headteacher is ambitious for the school and well supported by the deputy headteacher, staff and a highly committed, well-informed governing body.

Senior leaders regularly check on how well the school is performing and put actions into place which are successfully improving teaching and achievement. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The impact of teaching on pupils' learning is not yet outstanding. Achievement in mathematics is not as strong as it is in reading and writing.

Pupils do not have enough opportunities to practise mathematical skills in other subjects and there are few mathematical displays around school to encourage pupils' interest. There are times when pupils do not get on with their challenging tasks quickly enough to help them make as much progress as possible. Marking does not always provide pupils with advice on how to improve their work.

Pupils do not always correct and edit their work.
