Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils, parents and staff are proud of their school. Parents say that it is a happy community and offers many exciting opportunities to enrich their children’s lives. The overall quality of teaching throughout the school is good. At times, it is outstanding. All groups of pupils make good progress so that by the end of Year 6 attainment in writing is average but improving rapidly. Attainment in reading and mathematics is well above average. The youngest children and those new to the school settle quickly into school routines because of the high level of care that adults provide. Relationships between pupils and adults are excellent. Pupils’ behaviour in and outside classrooms is exemplary. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding. Pupils willingly take on roles of responsibility because they believe it is a way of giving something back to the school for the support and friendship that adults offer them. Leaders and managers have a secure knowledge of the school. Actions are focused on improving the quality of teaching and increasing the rate at which pupils make progress. Governors have a very clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities, and hold leaders to account for the quality of education the school provides. Attendance is above average. It is not yet an outstanding school because : While teaching is consistently good or better there is not yet enough that is outstanding in order to accelerate pupils’ progress further, especially in writing. Work planned for pupils is not always hard enough and in some lessons, pupils who show they can do the work are not always moved on quickly enough. Pupils do not have enough opportunities to be involved in extended pieces of writing in subjects other than English. Marking and feedback do not always inform pupils of what they have done well or what they need to do to improve further.
