Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The principal and the new leadership team have transformed the school. They have brought about rapid improvements to all areas of the school's work. Leaders have been successful in eradicating previously inadequate teaching.

The quality of teaching is now consistently good. Current pupils are making much better progress than has previously been the case. Leaders, including from the trust, have an accurate view of the school's strengths and areas for development.

Leaders responsible for the pupil premium funding and for those pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are knowledgeable and ensure that these pupils hav...e the right support to achieve well. The principal and leadership team have the overwhelming support of the staff and parents. Pupils benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum.

There are many opportunities for pupils to participate in a variety of after-school activities and educational visits. Pupils are polite, behave well and are kept safe. Instances of bullying and low-level disruption are extremely rare.

Pupils who arrive at the school with little or no English settle quickly and make good progress. Relationships between adults and pupils are extremely positive. There is a harmonious, busy and purposeful atmosphere in classrooms.

Children in the early years get off to a good start. They make good progress from their low and sometimes very low starting points. Despite improvements to the quality of teaching and pupils' progress, some pupils are not currently working at age-related expectations in reading, writing and mathematics.

In 2018, not enough pupils achieved the expected standards in the end-of-key-stage tests. Some teachers do not consistently challenge pupils or have high enough expectations of what they can achieve. Despite recent improvements, pupils' rates of absence and persistent absence have been higher than the national averages over recent years.
