Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Leadership and management are good. The headteacher and other leaders, including governors, have a clear vision for the school and are very ambitious. They set high standards and expectations for everyone.

The areas for improvement from the previous inspection have been addressed systematically and effectively. As a result, the quality of teaching, learning and assessment has improved and is now good. Leaders have ensured that pupils falling behind receive appropriate interventions and support to catch up.

As a result, by the end of key stage 2, standards in 2018 were above the national average in reading, writing and mathematic...s. Disadvantaged pupils are making good progress across the school. However, teaching does not consistently challenge the most able pupils to work at greater depth.

Provision for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is exemplary. The high levels of adult support, training and staff experience ensure that pupils are making admirable progress. Children in early years make a good start to their education.

Provision is imaginative and well planned. This supports children in making good rates of progress. Leaders have made significant improvements to the system for feedback to pupils.

This new system is working particularly well in mathematics. However, it is not applied consistently in writing for pupils to know how they can improve their work. The school's curriculum is well balanced to meet the needs and interests of pupils.

However, there are too few opportunities for pupils to practise their writing in subjects other than English. A strong climate and focus on spiritual, moral, social and cultural development allow pupils to understand issues and have knowledge of life in modern Britain. As a result of strong engagement with families, levels of attendance have improved and are now in line with those seen nationally.

The arrangements for safeguarding are effective. All staff and governors are continually mindful of pupils' welfare. The school's work with parents and carers and pupils is strong in promoting positive behaviour and overcoming barriers to learning.
