Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Under the effective leadership of the headteacher and governors, the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement have improved since the last inspection. Subject leaders support improvements in teaching by closely checking its impact on pupils' learning. Teachers are well supported.

Teaching is good and continues to improve. It ensures that progress over time is consistently good and standards are rising. Pupils in all year groups are learning well and are currently making rapid progress in reading.

The stimulating curriculum and very positive culture of learning across the school contribute to consistently good learning and pro...gress. The school's arrangements for safeguarding pupils and ensuring their well-being are outstanding. Pupils feel very safe in school.

Pupils' behaviour is good in lessons and around the school. They are polite and friendly. Leaders measure pupils' progress accurately and often.

Consequently, pupils at risk of falling behind are noticed quickly. Well-organised support helps them to catch up rapidly. Children in the early years make good progress, although some have weak literacy skills when they arrive.

They thrive personally and academically in the stimulating environment provided. The school prepares pupils well for life in modern Britain. Many learning opportunities help pupils to take responsibility and strongly support their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils do not make as much progress and reach as high standards in writing as they do in reading and mathematics. Very occasionally, teachers set work which is too easy for the most-able pupils.
