Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school This is a happy, welcoming school that sits at the heart of the local community.

Every person in school, adults and pupils, strives to ensure that it is a 'kind, safe and respectful family'. Under the determined leadership of the headteacher, the desire to provide the best possible teaching, outcomes and experiences for all pupils is tangible. As a result, the school has improved markedly since the previous inspection.

The school's determination to eliminate underperformance underpins robust and effective actions to ensure continuing improvement. Children in early years make a good start to their learning. They make good progress and are ...well prepared to start Year 1.

Outcomes for pupils are now good. Current pupils are making good progress from their individual starting points in reading, writing and mathematics. The behaviour of pupils is good, and is rooted in the respect and care they have for each other.

Pupils are polite and display good manners. Pupils' personal development and welfare are good. They are well prepared for the next steps in their education.

Most pupils work hard, but occasionally there is a lack of drive and urgency to succeed. This is sometimes seen in a lack of concentration and productivity, or not sticking at a difficult task. The school has worked hard to improve pupils' rates of attendance with some success.

These improvements need to continue. Because of consistently good teaching, pupils learn quickly. Teachers and teaching assistants alike are skilled at supporting pupils' learning.

Teachers generally match work accurately to pupils' varying abilities. On occasions, work can lack challenge, usually for the most able pupils. The school's wider curriculum is under review to ensure that subject-specific skills and knowledge are planned and taught more sequentially.

The leadership of mathematics is strong. Further work is needed to ensure that the leadership of other subjects is of equally good quality.
