Main findings

This is a good school. As a result of good leadership and its impact, attainment has risen year-on-year since the last inspection.

The attainment of children entering the Nursery is below that typical of their age overall. Nevertheless, because of the good provision, they progress well in the Early Years Foundation Stage and by the end of their year in the Reception class are working comfortably within the early learning goals. Pupils' progress in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 is accelerating because of improved teaching.

As a consequence, attainment is broadly average by the end of Year 2. By the end of Year 6, attainment is above average in English and well above average in mathematics. Pupil...s achieve exceptionally well in ICT and in French.

They have been successful in combining skills in both subject to produce first-rate story books in French. Pupils achieve well because of good teaching and a well-thought-out curriculum. However, although the quality of teaching is good in most lessons and many have outstanding elements.

on occasions, the introduction to lessons is too long for pupils and the pace slows. This reduces pupils' rate of progress. Teachers plan well for the needs of pupils of differing abilities in English and mathematics lessons, but do not do so as effectively in topic work.

Through daily routines and an effective programme for their personal and social education, all pupils make good gains in their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, gaining a range of skills which prepares them well for the next stage of their lives. They receive beneficial support and guidance. The care given to pupils whose circumstances may have made them vulnerable is outstanding.

Attendance is average. Leaders have reduced the number of persistent absentees but have not been successful in reducing the number of families who take holidays in school time which lowers the attendance figures. The school does not give certificates or other acknowledgements for good and full attendance, which disappoints pupils.

Leaders know the school well and have a proven track record of improving it. The previous issues to raise standards and to raise the achievement of average ability pupils have been fully remedied. Self-evaluation is accurate and staff are clear about what is needed to raise attainment further.

Their knowledge and enthusiasm contribute to the school's good capacity to continue to raise pupils' attainment and drive school improvement.
