Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and other leaders are united by a vision of nurture and care for pupils at the school.

This approach is underpinned by strong Christian values that promote equality well. The headteacher and senior leaders have led many significant recent changes in teaching. However, the intended impact of their actions is not always linked to pupils' outcomes in a measureable way.

Teaching, learning and assessment are good. Teachers are skilled and passionate about their work. As a result, pupils achieve well and make good progress.

Teachers do not consistently challenge pupils in mathematics. As a result, the most able disadvan...taged and lower-attaining pupils, in particular, do not achieve their full academic potential. Leaders are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum.

However, opportunities for pupils to develop a deep understanding in a wide range of subjects are limited. Pupil's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. Pupils learn about different faiths and cultures and the importance of respect towards those who are different from themselves.

Pupils are well prepared for their lives in modern Britain. Relationships between staff and pupils are impressive. This enables pupils to build levels of trust with adults in a caring, inclusive environment.

Pupils are proud of their school. They are polite and well mannered. They know how to protect themselves online.

Pupils say they feel safe in the school. Leaders' actions to raise attendance are starting to make improvements. Current attendance is close to the national average.

Children get off to a very good start in Reception, because their needs are assessed carefully and accurately. A well-thought-out learning environment, coupled with high-quality teaching, results in good progress from their starting points. They are well prepared for Year 1.

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are effectively supported. As a result, they make good progress in reading and writing. There is a strong culture of safeguarding that permeates the school.

Pupils are kept safe and feel safe.
