Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Achievement is good and has improved rapidly since the last inspection. Pupils make good progress from their starting points.

Teaching is good. The work is organised to motivate and involve pupils in lessons. Very positive relationships support pupils' learning.

Behaviour is good, pupils are respectful, polite and well mannered. Pupils feel safe. All statutory requirements in relation to safeguarding procedures are met.

Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs are supported well, which results in them making good progress. Leadership and management are good and have been instrumental in improving pupils' achievem...ent and the quality of teaching. Leaders can demonstrate that there are effective systems and procedures in place to make improvements.

The acting headteacher has been successful in identifying what the school needs to do to improve. The governance of the school is strong. The governing body has supported the change in leadership very well.

The governors have continued to challenge the senior leaders to improve the pupils' learning and they have high expectations for all pupils. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not all pupils make good progress in reading and writing in Key Stage 1. The teaching of letters and sounds does not match all pupils' needs.

Not all teaching is good or better. For example, information and communication technology is not used enough to develop pupils' skills. More-able pupils do not always make enough progress in their work.

Information about this school

The school is an average sized primary school. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is below average. The proportion of pupils supported at school action is broadly average.

The proportion at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also broadly average. There is an acting headteacher and deputy headteacher in post because the governing body is in the process of advertising for permanent appointments to these positions. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
