Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage and in reading, writing and mathematics in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Disabled pupils, those with special educational needs and those supported by the pupil premium make good progress in line with other children in the school as a result of targeted support.

The teaching across the school is good overall with some that is outstanding. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is very strong throughout the school. Pupils have very positive attitudes towards the school and their learning.

Pupils behave well and feel safe. The curriculum is well-matched to the n...eeds of the pupils and enhanced by the use of opportunities to learn outside of the school. Leaders and managers monitor teaching and pupils' progress closely and take action when a concern is identified.

This has a positive impact on achievement and the quality of teaching. Leaders, managers and governors have high ambitions for the school. They know what the next steps are and ensure that the school is improving.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is not consistently good and not enough is outstanding. A small amount still requires improvement especially when work is not set at the correct level. Marking and assessment does not always inform pupils how to improve especially in mathematics.

Pupils do not have enough opportunities to use mental methods of calculation in mathematics. Teachers do not always provide enough opportunities for pupils to extend their answers or evaluate their own work.
