Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Strong leadership is ensuring that the school expands successfully. It has the trust and confidence of parents, carers and the local community. Leaders and governors have high aspirations and know the school well.

They have ensured that good teaching leads to good progress overall in reading, writing and mathematics. There is a culture of self-reflection that results in constant improvement. Progress in reading is good for all pupils.

Until recently, boys made less progress than girls in writing and mathematics. Progress in these subjects is accelerating for all pupils, including boys, and standards are rising across the school. Boys' att...ainment still lags behind that of girls because of weaker progress in the past.

Leaders ensure that there is a very rich curriculum with a broad range of first-hand experiences. Most pupils make good progress in a wide range of subjects, including outdoor education. Leaders use additional funding for disadvantaged pupils carefully.

As a result, most disadvantaged pupils make good progress. Teachers track pupils' progress closely and know them well. They provide work that meets the majority of pupils' needs.

Boys are now given more activities and resources that they find interesting and help them learn. However, this is still being developed. Pupils' personal development, behaviour and welfare are very good.

Pupils are polite, friendly and respectful to adults and to each other. They have very positive attitudes to learning, which support their strong progress. Safeguarding is effective.

Pupils are safe and cared for well. Leaders use extra funding for sport effectively. Pupils appreciate the sporting activities provided, alongside a wide range of other extra-curricular activity.

Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is very effective. Pupils are prepared well for life in modern Britain. Children get off to a very good start in early years, although activities to support the progress of boys in writing and mathematics need to be developed further.

Parents are kept informed well and, consequently, they are able to support their children's learning at home effectively.
