Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and governors have successfully addressed the decline in outcomes which was evident at the previous inspection.

The quality of teaching has improved and, as a result, current pupils' progress in most subjects, including English and mathematics, is good. Leaders, governors and staff share high morale and a commitment to making further improvement in the school. Improvements to the quality of assessment mean that teaching is generally matched well to pupils' skills and abilities.

On occasion, teaching does not challenge pupils sufficiently in writing, including disadvantaged pupils. Teachers question pupils well to develop their thi...nking skills. Pupils' mathematical reasoning skills are generally developed well, but in some year groups these are not as strong.

Pupils behave well. They say that they feel safe in school and show a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe. Children in early years thrive in the newly improved learning environment.

They make good progress from their starting points. At times, activities do not fully extend their learning. Leadership of English and mathematics is strong and contributes well to improving teaching and pupils' outcomes.

The leadership of other subjects is developing. Leaders have worked well to improve attendance and reduce levels of persistent absence. This, however, remains an area for further improvement.

The curriculum provides a broad range of experiences and extra-curricular activities that develop learning well. Leaders and governors have an accurate view of the quality of the school. Plans for further improvement are clearly focused and regularly reviewed.
