Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The headteacher, senior and middle leaders provide a strong steer and clear direction for further development, and ensure that the school continues to improve. The governing body has a good grasp of the school's strengths and areas for further development. The governors also ensure that safeguarding procedures meet statutory requirements.

Leadership in the early years is focused and purposeful. This, together with good quality teaching and high expectations, enables all children from their typically below age-related starting points to make good progress in all areas of learning. Reception children are well prepared for learning in Year ...1.

Teaching over time and in all subjects is consistently good. Pupils, therefore, make good progress in literacy and mathematics and in other subjects of the curriculum. Achievement is good because pupils make good progress in the development of their literacy and numeracy skills.

Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make consistently good progress across the school. The school is supported well by the local authority. Pupils' behaviour is impeccable.

Attendance is above average and pupils say they feel very safe and enjoy school life. The exciting curriculum engages pupils well and promotes their understanding of traditional British values successfully, preparing them well for life in modern Britain. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Marking is not consistently good across the school.

It does not give effective guidance to pupils telling them how to improve their work. Pupils are not given time to respond to any comments made by staff. There is insufficient challenge for a minority of pupils, especially the most able, in some lessons.
