Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Pupils do well at this academy. They make good progress and achieve standards that ensure that they are well prepared for the next stage of their education.

Children in the early years get off to a good start. Good teaching and effective leadership ensure that, by the end of the Reception Year, they are ready to begin Year 1. Good-quality teaching across key stages 1 and 2 engages pupils and enables them to develop a strong desire to learn.

Teachers and teaching assistants work together very well to support pupils' development. Pupils' attitudes to learning are excellent. They are motivated and keen to achieve their best.

Behavio...ur in lessons and around the school is very good. Pupils are polite, courteous and helpful. Staff know pupils very well.

They ensure that pupils' safety and welfare are paramount. The academy's strong Christian ethos contributes well to pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The acting headteacher is highly motivational.

His leadership style is proving very successful at drawing everyone together into a highly effective team. Governors are strong advocates for the academy. Like the headteacher, they are very ambitious for the academy's future improvement.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers do not plan activities with enough challenge for the most-able pupils and thereby enable them to fully reach their potential. Middle leaders are not yet playing a full part in checking the progress of pupils over time in their respective areas of responsibility. The success criteria used to judge the impact of the changes being implemented are not precise enough.
