Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. From their different starting points, all pupils make good progress.

By age 11, pupils' standards of attainment are average and rising rapidly. The quality of teaching is good and so pupils achieve well during their time at the school. Pupils who speak English as an additional language achieve particularly well.

Lessons and activities are thoughtfully planned to ensure that pupils enjoy their work and develop lifelong learning skills. Pupils behave well and work hard in lessons. They have a good understanding of how to keep safe.

The school takes good care of pupils and promotes their spiritual, moral, social and cultural develo...pment very well. The headteacher has been instrumental in driving forward improvements to the quality of teaching and pupils' learning. In this work she is supported very well by keen and effective senior and middle leaders.

Checks on the progress of every pupil are regular and rigorous. Consequently, any who are falling behind are given extra help to catch up and those who are capable of moving on more rapidly receive additional support to enable them to do so. The governing body is well informed and provides good challenge and support to help the school improve.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Some teaching still requires improvement to be good. Not all pupils have enough opportunities to use mathematical skills in a purposeful way to solve problems. While all groups of pupils make good progress and the gap between the attainment of pupils whose circumstances have made them vulnerable and other pupils in the school is narrowing, the gap is still too wide.
