Pupils are eager to learn and their conduct in lessons and around school is often exemplary. They make an excellent contribution to the life of the school. The well-organised curriculum develops the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics well.

It provides a range of rich experiences, which contribute extremely well to pupils' spiritual, m...oral, social and cultural development. Pupils are very well prepared for life in modern Britain. Children in the early years get off to a good start in their school life because of good teaching.

Teaching is good over time and there are examples of outstanding classroom practice. Teachers plan activities that engage and motivate pupils who listen attentively and work hard in lessons. Governors know the school's strengths and areas for improvement well.

By the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 standards in reading and mathematics are above average. Standards in writing are improving and are similar to the national average. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The quality of teaching is not yet leading to outstanding overall achievement.

This is because : achievement in writing is not as strong as in reading and mathematics. Although gaps are closing, boys, particularly the most able, do not achieve as well as girls in this subject. Some of the activities provided for children in the early years do not always support the best development in writing.

On occasion, pupils do not have enough time to make the most of the guidance provided in teachers' marking. Some middle and subject leaders are at an early stage of developing their areas of responsibility.
