Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher has brought strong and focused leadership to the school. She has established high expectations for pupils and staff. School leaders have successfully implemented necessary improvements to ensure that the school provides a good-quality education and continues to improve.

Governors are knowledgeable and ambitious for the future of the school. They possess a range of relevant skills and contribute effectively to school improvement. Pupils are nurtured and kept safe.

Their behaviour is good. Leaders develop pupils' spiritual, moral, social, cultural and personal education well through the school's curriculum and experiences. Children in the early years make an excellent start to school life in the vibrant nursery environment.

Good teaching and exciting activities successfully engage children in their learning. By the end of Year 2, pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, attain outcomes that are above the national averages for reading, writing and mathematics. Parents and carers are very supportive of the school.

They appreciate the improved communication and the opportunities provided to participate in school and community events. Pupils benefit from a broad curriculum that is designed to meet their needs and interests. Pupils enjoy learning about issues that are pertinent to their local community as well as to the wider world.

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are supported well. Most make good progress from their starting points. The quality of teaching and learning is good.

However, not all teachers ensure that time in lessons is used effectively for pupils to make consistently strong progress. This is particularly the case with the most able pupils. Mathematical problem-solving and reasoning skills are inconsistently taught across the school.

Although knowledgeable and skilled, subject leaders do not have a strong enough impact on improving pupils' outcomes in their areas of responsibility. Rates of absence, particularly for those who are persistently absent, although improving, remain high.
