Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Achievement is good throughout the school. Teachers plan effectively for pupils' needs and, as a result, pupils make good progress.

Children make good progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They are well equipped to make a good start in Year 1. The corridors and classrooms are very attractive and pupils become quickly absorbed into a learning culture.

Good progress is made by those pupils who are disabled or who have special educational needs including those pupils who access the specialist base provision. Spiritual, moral, cultural and social education is a key feature of the curriculum and the wider work of the school. It is pro...moted very well.

Pupils have very good attitudes to learning and each other. Their behaviour in lessons and around the school is good. They are passionate about school and their teachers.

They feel very safe. Pupil premium funding is well used to ensure their achievement is similar to that of other pupils. The headteacher, senior team and governing body are rigorously driving standards and checking teaching scrupulously.

As a result teaching is continuing to improve. It is not yet an outstanding school because: Marking which informs pupils of how to improve is not yet consistently effective throughout the school. Middle leaders are not yet consistent in their use of information about how well pupils are progressing.
