Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher sets high expectations and leads the school with determination. He has established a cohesive and effective team who share his vision for success. Leaders and teachers have a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the school.

They work together well to share their practice and ensure that the quality of teaching is consistently good. Governors are committed to the school. They ask challenging questions and know the school well.

However, plans provided by leaders are not precise about how rapidly they expect their planned actions to have impact. Leaders and governors ensure that the curriculum provides pupils... with exciting experiences and engages them in their learning. It promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well.

Middle leaders are new to their roles but have benefited from training to support their effectiveness. However, they are not yet fully involved in checking the impact of their work. Current pupils are making strong progress, especially in reading and writing.

The provision for disadvantaged pupils and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is well planned. They make good progress because of the effective support they receive. Teachers have positive relationships with pupils.

They support pupils well and instil strong attitudes to learning. Children make a good start to their education. Teachers plan activities that engage children's interests and support their good progress.

In mathematics, teachers do not consistently plan for pupils to use their reasoning skills to think deeply about their learning. This limits the progress they make, especially for the most able pupils. Not all teachers insist that pupils present their work neatly when writing across the curriculum.
