Key findings

This is a good school.

Although the curriculum and pupils' moral and social development are outstanding, the school's overall effectiveness is not outstanding because there is variability in the quality of teaching. The vast majority of parents and carers, pupils and staff are very positive about the school and its work. From starting points that are below age-related expectations, pupils make better than expected progress in the school.

Attainment in Year 6 is above national expectations. Pupils' speaking and listening, reading and number skills are developed well. Standards in reading, mathematics and writing are all above average with reading being higher than mathematics and writing respec...tively.

Improvements in English and mathematics enable a significant proportion of pupils to attain highly. Teaching quality is good. Some is outstanding in Years 5 and 6 while it is typically satisfactory in Reception.

Differences in the pace of learning result from pupils not always being active enough in their work or sufficiently challenged to ensure their needs or abilities are met fully. Progress between key stages is, therefore, uneven. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding.

Pupils have very positive attitudes to learning and manage their own behaviour in classrooms and other situations extremely well. This is confirmed by parent and pupil questionnaire responses. Attendance has consistently improved and is above average.

Leadership and management are good. The headteacher has high ambitions for pupils that are shared by all staff. Regular lesson observations by the headteacher ensure that performance management is securely in place.

The roles of middle managers in leading teaching are developing well but their impact on ensuring consistency of learning across the school is variable. Governors have a good understanding of the school's strengths and areas for development. They support the school effectively, provide constructive challenge and attend extremely well to all aspects of pupils' safety.
