Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Most pupils make good progress and achieve well. In the Early Years Foundation Stage, children make good progress and most achieve the goals expected of them.

Good progress continues in Key Stages 1 and 2. Despite an unusual dip in standards in 2011, attainment at the end of Key Stage 2 is once again well above average. Teaching and learning are good.

Teachers use their subject knowledge well to ensure that pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Teachers plan good lessons which have clear objectives and use a range of strategies to involve and engage the pupils. Teachers often make the learning more relevant by us...ing news stories or current events as a stimulus.

Behaviour is good and most pupils enjoy lessons. The school fosters a very positive ethos based on mutual respect and celebration of diversity. Pupils say they feel safe and the vast majority of pupils have positive attitudes to learning.

Attendance is above average and pupils arrive at school on time. The high quality of leadership and management of the senior leadership team is driving improvement at a rapid pace. Morale is high and staff wholeheartedly agree that the school is well led and managed.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers sometimes spend too much time talking to the class. Not all marking gives pupils enough help to improve their work. Teaching assistants are not always deployed to best effect to support pupils' learning.
