Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher leads the school very well with a consistent focus on improvement. He is ably supported by the deputy headteachers, the trust partner and the wider school team. As a result, pupils receive a good education and make strong progress in a friendly and inclusive environment.

Leaders are accurate in their evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the school. They identify the right priorities for improvement. Systems to check closely on pupils' attainment and progress are used well to identify pupils who need extra help.

Governors and trustees know the school well and strike a happy balance between support and challenge. As... a result, they are effective in holding leaders to account for how well pupils are doing. The quality of teaching is good.

Teachers and teaching assistants know their pupils well and have high expectations of them. They ask questions that tackle pupils' misconceptions. As a result, pupils are focused, work hard and make strong progress from their starting points.

The progress of the disadvantaged pupils and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is good, because of the effective support that they receive. The curriculum is regularly reviewed, and it is broad and balanced. Pupils' experiences are enriched by a wide range of activities and visits.

Pupils' personal development, behaviour and welfare are good. Pupils conduct themselves well in lessons and around the school. They are confident, polite and courteous to one another.

Most pupils show positive attitudes to learning. Due to the hard work of leaders and the school's attendance team, pupils' attendance overall is improving. However, disadvantaged pupils and boys remain more likely to be absent than their peers.

Pupils make strong progress from their starting points to reach expected standards. However, not enough pupils, including the most able, reach the higher standards at the end of Year 6 in reading, writing and mathematics. Generally, teachers plan learning to meet the needs of most pupils.

However, in some cases, the level of challenge for pupils is inconsistent and, as a result, not all groups of pupils, including the most able, learn as effectively as they could.
