Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders are committed to providing an inclusive and nurturing education which raises pupils' aspirations. Pupils receive specific support that meets their individual needs.

Pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. This is because leaders and governors intervene in a timely way to make sure that no pupil falls behind. The headteacher's drive and ambition have brought about improvements.

She is supported well by the deputy headteacher and together they have established a culture of high expectations. Teaching is consistently good. Leaders tailor professional development to the needs of the staff.

Staff feel we...ll supported, and as a result their morale is high. Pupils behave well. Relationships are positive.

Pupils try hard and are keen to find out new things. They are willing to improve their work. These attitudes help them to make progress in their learning.

Teachers place much emphasis on pupils' spoken language and extending their vocabulary. However, pupils do not have enough opportunities to develop their reasoning skills. The curriculum is interesting and engaging.

Pupils' work shows that they work hard in all the subjects they study. Children get off to a positive start in the early years. They make good progress from very low starting points.

Disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities make good progress. Safeguarding is effective. Staff take all necessary steps to ensure that the pupils are kept safe and well.

However, not all training and policies are up to date. Most-able pupils are given challenging tasks, but not enough of them attain higher standards. Leaders' plans for improvement are not as sharply focused as they could be.

Plans lack the detail that is needed to help governors hold leaders to account more rigorously. Despite some successes as a result of leaders' extensive actions, attendance remains below the national average. Subject leaders know how well pupils are doing, but they do not analyse the performance of distinct groups in detail to inform further actions.
