Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders have acted with increasing purpose to halt a decline in pupils' outcomes since the last inspection. Their actions have brought about marked improvement to the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. Pupils' progress has improved considerably and is now good.

Across the school, pupils' attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is rising quickly. As a result of good teaching and effective leadership, learning gets off to a good start in the early years. Children are well prepared for learning in Year 1.

Across the school, pupils are responding well to the more challenging work they are now given. However, teachers' higher... expectations are not yet fully reflected in pupils' outcomes. Leaders know that there remains scope to further increase the proportion of pupils reaching the higher standards by the end of each key stage.

Leaders offer a rich curriculum that engages pupils' interests and inspires them to learn. Pupils enjoy coming to school and feel safe. As a result, their attendance is good.

Most pupils behave well, show good attitudes to learning and take pride in their work A few pupils sometimes display very challenging behaviour that previous behaviour policies have not suitably addressed. Leaders are improving systems to manage the behaviour of these pupils, and as a result the number of exclusions is declining. Governors are a school strength.

They know their school well and effectively hold leaders to account for their actions. Governors have the academic, social and emotional development of every pupil at the heart of their decisions. Middle leaders play an increasingly effective role in school improvement.

Newly qualified teachers speak highly of the support and help they receive from colleagues. Although the large majority of parents and carers have positive views of the school, a small minority express concerns, especially about behaviour. Parents are not always kept well informed about the school's work.
