Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The attainment and progress of the vast majority of pupils has been consistently above average by the end of Year 6. The leadership of the school is dynamic, ambitious and forward thinking. The headteacher and his senior leadership team articulate a clear vision to a cohesive staff who are committed to ensuring the best for pupils.

The quality of teaching is good. Teachers, teaching assistants and other adults are a talented, well trained, caring and dedicated team. They have high expectations of pupils and form very positive and productive relationships with them.

Pupils say that they feel safe and are proud of their school. Th...ey form strong bonds with each other and behave well during lessons, at play and around the school. Governors have a good knowledge of the school and are fully aware of its strengths and what it needs to do to improve.

Parents speak very highly of the school and say that they appreciate the school's 'open-door' policy, the approachability of the headteacher, and the care, guidance and support provided for their children. The curriculum provides many outstanding opportunities for pupils to learn from first hand experiences through their visits and visitors who come into school. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Attainment in writing, though above average, is not as good as in reading and mathematics.

Standards achieved in 2012 were not as good as in previous years. The quality of the monitoring of teaching is not yet consistent enough to support the school in its ambition to make more of its teaching outstanding.
