Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school. Children have a successful start to school. They enter the Early Years Foundation Stage with skills and abilities similar to those expected nationally. As a result of the good support they receive and the stimulating learning environment they make good progress which continues throughout Years 1 and 2. High proportions of pupils make more-than-expected progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Teaching is typically good. Both teachers and teaching assistants have high expectations for pupils’ learning and behaviour. Pupils say that the teachers make learning fun. Pupils have good attitudes to learning and usually behave well around the school. Pupils are proud of their school and say that they feel safe. Parents also consider that the school cares well for their children. Leaders, including the headteacher, provide clear direction for the school, resulting in above-average standards. The governing body has a good understanding of the school’s strengths and areas for development. They support and challenge the school effectively. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Middle leaders are not yet fully accountable for the progress of pupils in their areas of responsibility. There is a small gap between the attainment of disadvantaged boys in writing when compared to that of other pupils in the school. Pupils do not have enough chances to respond to teachers’ feedback on their work.
