Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The strong, inspiring leadership of the headteacher and senior leaders, with the support of governors, has ensured that teaching has improved and is now good. From their starting points, pupils make good progress. Standards have risen and continue to rise.

The school's work to develop safeguarding systems and structures are good. They ensure that all pupils feel safe and that they are safe. The new induction process for all pupils makes sure that staff have an accurate picture of the pupils' starting points and allow progress in all aspects of learning to be measured and celebrated.

Relationships between adults and pupils are go...od. This makes pupils feel happy, respected and thoughtfully looked after. Pupils come to lessons ready to learn.

The good behaviour of pupils is a reflection of the way in which skilful staff use a range of strategies to support them. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is not yet consistently outstanding. Teachers currently have a range of data from which to work.

However, this is not yet a unified data system and so is over-complicated. While increasing, pupils are not given every opportunity to manage their own behaviour, so that they are given trust in and responsibility for their actions. The school's resources for teaching the new curriculum and associated skills are limited.

Some learning areas do not celebrate pupils' work or extend pupils' learning further. Outdoor space to meet the needs of pupil's social and physical development is limited.
