Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The high aspirations and dedication of the headteacher are shared by staff and governors. This has led to rapid improvements in teaching, learning and assessment, pupils' behaviour and pupils' achievements since the previous inspection.

Leaders and governors have an accurate view of the school and know where to focus improvement. The school is well placed to improve further. Governance is effective and governors have improved their understanding of pupils' achievements, especially in aspects related to disadvantaged pupils.

The stimulating curriculum and wide range of enrichment activities provide high-quality learning opportunities for p...upils to extend their sporting, musical and artistic skills. Pupils are safe and well cared for. Leaders and governors make sure that there are effective safeguarding arrangements in place.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. School leaders prepare pupils well for life in modern Britain. Pupils treat each other and adults with respect.

Behaviour is good, both in lessons and around the school. Pupils show positive attitudes to learning. Attendance is above the national average.

Standards are improving. In 2016, an above-average proportion of Year 6 pupils met the national expectations in reading, writing and mathematics, and the higher standards in reading and mathematics. During this academic year most pupils are making good progress from their various starting points in reading, writing and mathematics, especially those who are disadvantaged.

The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good. Teachers plan interesting tasks that motivate pupils well in their learning. However, occasionally, when the rate of work slows, pupils do not make the progress that they should.

The most able pupils, including the most able disadvantaged pupils, are not always sufficiently challenged so that they consistently reach the higher standards in English and mathematics across the school. Senior leaders have developed rigorous and robust monitoring systems to check pupils' learning and progress in reading, writing and mathematics. These systems are less well developed for other subjects.

Staff, governors, parents and pupils are supportive of the school.
