The leadership of the early years provision is effective. Children in the early years are well looked after and make good progress. Staff in the Nursery and Reception classes are well qualified and attentive to the development needs of children.

The provision for two-year-old children has been developed sensitively over the years and offers effective care to support their development. The environment in the early years is adequate. However, both indoor and outdoor areas are in need of further development to provide children with more opportunities to be stimulated in their learning.

Leaders have addressed past issues with progress at key stage 2 and have implemented effective new teaching and assessment strategies.
