Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Children get off to a good start in the lively and welcoming Early Years Foundation Stage. Throughout the rest of the school, pupils, including those with disabilities and special educational needs, achieve well in English and mathematics to reach above average standards by the time they leave.

The quality of teaching has improved and is typically energetic and engaging across a range of subjects. Pupils' behaviour is exemplary in lessons and around the school. They feel well cared for and extremely safe, a view shared by their parents.

Teaching and achievement have improved considerably since the previous inspection as a result of the dr...ive and determination of the headteacher, supported by an enthusiastic and committed staff team and governing body. The school's caring atmosphere promotes pupils' social, moral, spiritual and cultural development extremely well. As a result, the school is an extremely harmonious community.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Occasionally, activities in different parts of lessons are too easy for some pupils, especially the more able. In a few lessons, introductions are too long, not allowing enough time for pupils to get on with individual or group work. Pupils' targets do not consistently show them how to improve their work, especially in mathematics.
