Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. It has improved well since the last inspection.

This is due to the strong leadership of the headteacher and the deputy headteacher with the support of staff and governors. Pupils enjoy learning and achieve well. All groups make good progress from their starting points and test results at the end of Year 6 are above average in English and mathematics.

Teaching is good across the school because : lessons are interesting and expectations are mostly high. Some teaching is outstanding. Children get off to a good start in the Nursery with good attention given not only to developing skills in reading, writing and mathematics but also to childre...n's personal development.

Pupils at risk of falling behind in their learning are well supported through small group work or one-to-one teaching. Pupils behave well not just in lessons but in and around the school. They are very friendly and rightly feel safe and secure.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is good rather than outstanding. Teachers' questioning is not always as effective as it might be. At times, teachers do not take the opportunity to change what they have planned for pupils to do in lessons when the planned task is not challenging enough.

In the Reception class, there are many opportunities for children to develop their skills well in the classroom but far less so in the outside area. The planned curriculum does not provide enough challenging opportunities for pupils to use their good mental arithmetic skills well in solving mathematical problems.
