Pupils understand how the structure of their lessons helps them to remember more. Pupils enjoy maths. They are enthusiastic about their lessons.

Children in early years purposefully encounter number as part of their everyday provision. Opportunities to count and understand patterns are plentiful in early years. Leaders have recently changed assessment in mathematics.

It now matches with more precision what has been taught.Some wider curriculum subjects are well planned and embedded, such as physical education. Planning is progressive and pupils are well supported to build skills and knowledge over time.

This impacts positively on the wider sporting offer. The curriculum in some other subjects, such as art and design, is not as well embedded. Where this is the case, pupils are not remembering or connecting key knowledge and skills as leaders intend them to.

The school has clear procedures to identify pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Leaders make sure pupils with SEND get support through timely referrals to additional agencies. The school uses the advice from professionals when they support pupils with SEND.

What does the school need to do to improve?

(Information for the school and appropriate authority)

• Some subjects are in different stages of development.

The school is aware that some subjects are not implemented consistently so that key learning and skills are building through the teaching of the subject. This means pupils are not consistently remembering and connecting new knowledge and skills. The school must ensure that the planned developments are consistently well implemented in the classroom, so that pupils learn well across all subjects.
