This is a good school Pupils make good progress in all subjects during their time at the school.

However, in writing, the most able do not make as much progress as other ability groups. The achievement of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is good because tasks set for them are sharply focused on their needs. The leadership of the school, including governors, is committed to ensuring a good-quality education for the pupils.

Teaching is good. However, on a small number of occasions, teachers do not challenge some of the most able sufficiently. Pupils apply themselves well to their work, presenting it neatly and taking a pride in its a...ppearance.

Pupils behave sensibly at lunchtime and breaktimes. The inspector found children to be well mannered and polite. The early years provides high-quality experiences for children to thrive.

They are taught well and the setting is well led and managed. The curriculum is good and gives pupils a broad range of experiences across many subjects. However, pupils do not write at length in their topic work.
