Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. From average starting points pupils make good progress throughout the school. At the end of Year 6 overall standards in reading, writing and mathematics are above average.

Pupils with special educational needs and those known to be eligible for the pupil premium funding make good progress because they are supported effectively. Teaching is good with examples of outstanding practice in some classes. High attendance reflects the fact that pupils enjoy school.

Behaviour is good overall and often exemplary. Pupils are friendly and polite and kind to others. They form trusting relationships with staff and so they feel safe and happy at school....

Senior leaders, including the governing body, ensure that improvements are strongly focused on raising pupils' standards and progress. Parents are very positive about the school and all that it does to help their children to achieve well. It is not yet an outstanding school because : While most of the teaching is good, not enough is outstanding to drive pupils' progress more rapidly and make their achievement outstanding.

Occasionally, work in lessons is not always matched entirely accurately to all pupils' ability, and teachers' expectations are not high enough of the pupils when they work on their own. Senior leaders do not always focus sufficiently on how well pupils learn when they observe lessons to determine the quality of teaching. Subject leaders are not involved enough in checking that the teaching and learning are always good or better in their subjects.
