Key findings

This is a good school. It has improved since its last inspection. It is not yet outstanding because pupils' confidence to spell accurately and to present their work well varies between classes and, although improved, not all teaching is at the level of the very best.

As a result, a few inconsistencies remain in the progress pupils make. Pupils' achievement is good. They have a very positive start in the Reception class.

Pupils continue to make good progress, particularly in their reading, speaking, listening and number skills. All groups of pupils, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, learn and progress well. Teaching is now typically good.

There are occ...asions when teaching is outstanding. In some activities, the pace of learning slows because teachers' explanations to the whole class take up too much time and the links made between what pupils learn and how it can be used in everyday situations are sometimes too few. Teachers promote an excellent atmosphere for learning.

Pupils' excellent behaviour and attitudes to learning are key factors contributing to their improved achievement over time. They behave extremely well. They have an excellent awareness of how to keep themselves safe, for example, when using computers or when out of school.

Senior leaders have succeeded in improving the school's effectiveness since the last inspection. They have rightly and successfully focused on improving weaker aspects of teaching and on addressing some underachievement in English. The majority of middle managers are adept at influencing development in their subject.

The governing body is supportive, yet challenging. The vast majority of staff say they are well managed and feel proud to be a part of the school. Parents and carers are overwhelmingly supportive of the school's work.
