Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher's dedication and high expectations have been central to recent improvements of the school.

An inclusive and nurturing environment is evident within the school. Staff are attentive and support pupils' emotional well-being effectively. Since July 2018, outcomes have risen.

Pupils' starting points on entry to the school are typically low. Good teaching enables them to make good progress. Leaders are developing the curriculum.

Strong examples can be seen of where this is working well in science and computing. The teaching of reading has improved. Pupils develop their skills through a wide range of texts, and their pro...gress is carefully monitored by staff.

The teaching of mathematics is improving. Pupils are now given opportunities to use and apply their mathematical skills, solve problems and reason. Because teaching sometimes lacks challenge, the proportion of pupils reaching higher standards in reading, writing and mathematics across the school is below the national average.

Pupils behave well in lessons and at social times. They are keen to learn but sometimes they do not take enough care with presenting their work. Early years is well led.

Staff in the early years are highly skilled. They provide a wealth of learning opportunities for children within an attractive and stimulating environment. The pupil premium is put to good use.

Disadvantaged pupils benefit from the school's strategies. The use of the physical education (PE) and sport premium funding has only been partially effective. Too few pupils learn to swim by the time they leave the school.

The Trust Improvement Board (TIB) of DRB Ignite Multi Academy Trust (MAT) provides appropriate challenge for school leaders. Although leaders provide good training, staff would benefit from more opportunities to learn from others' good practice to improve their own. The speech and language base at the school provides high-quality provision for those with additional communication needs.

The safeguarding culture within school is effective.
