Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Since the academy opened, leaders have worked tirelessly to drive improvement. The head of school is supported well by the executive headteacher and the trust.

Together they use training well to address weaknesses. Their relentless drive is shared by all. The school's plans for improvement are informed by a plethora of information that leaders gather.

Senior leaders do not use this information well enough to identify emerging and key priorities. Leaders are not always able to track the impact of the actions they have taken. Outcomes at the end of key stages 1 and 2 since the academy opened, have been at least in line with national average...s and on occasion above.

They show improvement over the past two years. Children in the early years achieve at least the same as their peers nationally. Teaching over time is good.

As a result, pupils' progress is largely good across the school, including those pupils who are disadvantaged or those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. The most able pupils do not always achieve as well as they might. Middle leaders' roles are well developed.

They play a vital role in the school, providing specialisms in such areas as history, art and religious education. As a result, the curriculum is rich and well developed. Pupils' individual interests and talents are nurtured well.

Some teachers' expectations of the quality of presentation of pupils' work are not as high as they could be. Pupils do not always take pride in their work and produce their best. The teaching of grammar, punctuation and spelling and handwriting, although enabling good outcomes in Year 6, is not as effective as it should be, particularly in key stage 2.

Children get off to a flying start to their education in the early years. They are confident, articulate children who are keen to explore learning in the well-developed Nursery and Reception classes. Attendance of the majority of pupils is at least in line with the national average.

Where it has not been, there is clear evidence of improvement over time. Parents who responded to Ofsted's online questionnaire, Parent View, are overwhelmingly positive and supportive of the school. As one parent said about her son, 'He is developing his love of learning.'
