Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders' and governors' actions have secured a good quality of teaching, learning and assessment across year groups and subjects. The headteacher's distinctive curriculum vision is shared successfully with staff, parents and pupils. Focusing on the great outdoors to inspire awe and wonder, and to enrich pupils' experiences, is highly valued.

Links to national curriculum subject goals are tightening. Senior leaders have embedded a welcoming, inclusive ethos across the school. Pupils enjoy the distinctively Christian collective worship experiences enormously.

Fundamental British values, such as tolerance and respect, are effectively promote...d and are palpable. Subject leaders have a real passion for their areas of responsibility. They are knowledgeable and particularly effective in raising the profile of their area of the curriculum.

Not all subject leaders, however, focus sharply enough on developing the quality of teaching and learning. Teachers encourage positive attitudes among pupils. A strong rapport and a friendly repartee between adults and pupils are ever present.

Pupils get along well, and encourage and look after each other. Where occasional incidents of poorer behaviour occur, leaders' logs lack the detail and chronology needed to spot patterns. Teachers' subject knowledge is strong.

They use this well to assess pupils' learning and to plan work accordingly. For the most part, therefore, pupils' needs are met effectively. At times, however, reading and writing tasks are not matched closely enough to pupils' phonics knowledge and skills, particularly in Reception and key stage 1.

A small proportion of staff are less confident and proficient in the teaching and learning of phonics. Pupils are curious, confident and outgoing. They are offered a wide range of school and class responsibilities, which they undertake seriously.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is especially strong. Pupils enjoy learning. In key stage 2, they find mathematical challenges especially motivating.

From their broadly typical starting points, most pupils make strong progress across subjects. This said, at times the quality of pupils' handwriting and the consistency of their spelling vary from subject to subject. Reception children are very well looked after by kind, caring staff.

Over time, most make good progress and are well prepared for Year 1. Nevertheless, some children experience too little challenge in their writing, reading and number work. This slows their progress.
