Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The vast majority of pupils makes good progress,especially in reading.

They get off to a good start in the Reception class. Attanment at the end of both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 is above average. Teaching is good with some examples of outstanding practice.

Pupils' behaviour is good and attendance is above the national average. Inspection evidence supports pupils' and parents' views that pupils feel very safe in school and any incidents of bullying are dealt with promptly and effectvely. Pupils' learning is of a good quality because : teachers ensure that lessons are matched to pupils' prior learning and capture the pupils' interests.<>
Pupils who sometimes find learning more difficult are well-supported and make good progress. The headteacher leads and manages the school very well. Despite staffing difficulties, she has ensured a strong focus on continous improvement.

She has the full support of her staff and also from a knowledgeable governing body. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Achievement is good rather than outstanding. While an increasing number of pupils make more than the progress expected of them, the proportion exceeding the expected progress is not high.

Teaching is not yet outstanding, mainly because more-able pupils are not always provided with sufficient challenge in mathematics. Also, marking is not always used to best effect. The role of middle and senior leaders,other than the headteacher, is not fully developed.
