Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Senior leaders, governors and staff have established a culture where all pupils are expected do well in an atmosphere that is kind and caring.

Governors have a clear understanding of the school's strengths and weaknesses. They provide robust challenge to the school as well as effective support. Senior leaders have ensured improvements to teaching, particularly of writing and mathematics.

This means that current pupils are making stronger progress across the school. More pupils' work is now in line with national expectations. The quality of teaching is good.

Teachers ensure that the majority of lessons are interesting and purposef...ul. Pupils learn well. Sometimes, teachers do not always challenge pupils enough in lessons.

This means that pupils do not always produce their best work. Pupils make a good start with learning to read as a result of careful teaching of phonics. This is then built upon by regular reading practice and by pupils experiencing a wide variety of texts.

Children make a good start in the early years foundation stage. Staff provide a wide range of stimulating activities in a nurturing environment. The school has recognised the need to develop middle leadership to provide more capacity.

Individual teachers have received training and are now responsible for specific areas. It is still early days. Pupils' personal development is promoted well.

Pupils' well-being has a high priority in the school. Pupils enthusiastically take responsibility for leading different aspects of school life. Pupils behave well across the school.

In the majority of lessons, they are diligent. However, if the learning is not challenging enough they can lose interest and there is some low-level disruption. Pupils enjoy a curriculum that they find interesting and stimulating.
