Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The majority of pupils learn well across all subjects and make good progress during their time in the school. The school has maintained high standards of attainment and pupils consistently leave the school with above average results in reading, writing and mathematics. Children make a good start in Nursery and Reception, where they are encouraged to enjoy their learning. The majority of the teaching is good or outstanding across the school. In English especially, interesting and stimluating learning activities capture pupils’ interest and pupils are enthusiastic about their learning. Behaviour, both in and out of lessons, is exemplary. Pupils are courteous and respectful to their peers, teachers and visitors. Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make outstanding progress as a result of high-quality provision. Inspirational leadership by the headteacher, supported by leaders throughout the school, creates a positive climate for learning where all staff and pupils strive to achieve their best. Leaders and governors know the strengths of the school, and how to use these to continually improve aspects of school life. It is not yet an outstanding school because: High ability pupils do not make as much progress in mathematics as they do in English. In some mathematics lessons, learning activities do not allow the most able pupils to build on what they have learned before.
