Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher provides clear and effective leadership. She is ably supported by a united staff team and knowledgeable governing body. Leaders have responded well to the areas for improvement identified at the last inspection.

Improvement is evident in all areas, including behaviour, early years and safeguarding. The school works in close partnership with three other schools in the federation. Joint training and sharing good practice have helped improve teaching and outcomes.

Leaders' evaluation skills are accurate. They have identified appropriate priorities and have developed effective plans to address areas of weakness. The headteache...r and executive headteacher carry out regular and effective checks on teaching and learning.

However, the mathematics leader is not involved sufficiently in this process. This limits the impact of middle leadership. Teaching, learning and assessment are good.

Teachers use their detailed knowledge of pupils to plan interesting activities that pupils enjoy. Pupils make strong progress in phonics. This is because it is taught well from the outset.

Sometimes, teachers do not challenge or move pupils on in mathematics swiftly enough, especially the most able. This hinders their progress. Pupils' problem-solving and reasoning skills in mathematics are in the early stages of development.

As a result, too few reach the higher standards at the end of key stage 2. Some pupils in key stage 2 lack strategies to help them spell correctly. Occasionally, work is not presented well as teachers accept untidy work too readily.

Pupils behave well in class and around school. They readily take on additional responsibilities and actively fundraise for different charities. Leadership of the curriculum is good.

Pupils enjoy and benefit from the wide range of subjects taught, as well as experiences. Pupils make good progress in reading and writing. Attainment has risen at the end of each key stage for the last three years.

Progress in mathematics is less consistent. Children in the early years make a good start to school life. The needs of mixed-aged groups are catered for particularly well.

All staff provide high-quality care and support.
