Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Strong foundations are laid for children's learning in the Nursery and Reception. The children make good progress throughout the school and Year 2 pupils reach higher than average standards in reading, writing and mathematics.

Those who fall behind in their learning are quickly given extra help to catch up. Staff are proud to belong to the school. They engage pupils well in interesting activities.

Teachers carefully check pupils' progress and pupils know how to improve their work. Staff take care of all the children extremely well. Pupils feel safe and know how to keep themselves safe.

Their behaviour is excellent. Pupils' very ...good attendance is evidence of their great enjoyment of school. They regularly help teachers to make decisions about improving provision.

Under the headteacher's strong leadership and wise management, the school continues to improve. There is excellent provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The school has an excellent partnership with parents who are extremely supportive.

The Governing Body is challenging and knowledgeable and keeps a close eye on the progress of pupils and teachers' work. It is not yet an outstanding school because : In occasional lessons, teachers are not sufficiently clear about what they intend pupils to learn and do not give them enough time to do their own work. Teachers' appraisal objectives are not always precisely matched to improvements in pupils' learning.

When teachers in charge of subjects and areas check colleagues' work, they do not identify how pupils' learning has been influenced.
