Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Pupils make good progress throughout the school. Pupils’ work, school data and end of Key Stage results for 2015 show that standards have improved especially in reading and writing. Strong, determined and ambitious leadership by the headteacher, supported by the deputy headteacher, has effectively improved teaching and is raising pupils’ achievement. Early years provision is outstanding because : children learn in a nurturing environment. They make rapid progress and enter Year 1 with above- average achievement. Teaching is typically good in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Pupils are given clear guidance on how to improve their work. As a result they make good progress. Behaviour around the school is good. Pupils are enthusiastic learners. The school ensures all pupils are safe and well cared for. Pupils all say they feel safe in school. The governing body knows the strengths and weaknesses of the school. They effectively challenge and support school leaders. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Progress in mathematics is not as strong as it is in reading and writing. Not all teachers move pupils on to harder work quickly enough or give them the opportunity to solve mathematical problems. Subject leaders know what they need to do to improve standards but they are not rigorous enough in measuring the impact of their work on improving pupil progress.
