Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Since the previous inspection, senior leaders have managed the growth of the school well. The headteacher, alongside new leaders, works hard to ensure that all pupils receive the best care and a good education. Teachers plan lessons that strengthen pupils' understanding and help them to make good progress across the school.

Teachers make accurate assessments of pupils' work to identify strengths and gaps in learning. This information is used well to plan lessons that strengthen pupils' understanding. Pupils make good progress in their learning and develop secure knowledge and skills.

Pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or ...disabilities, and disadvantaged pupils, make good progress. Teachers provide high-quality support and encourage these pupils to develop as independent learners. Leaders put in place a broad, balanced and interesting curriculum that engages pupils.

Staff provide pupils with good opportunities to participate in arts, science and sports activities, which helps them to develop new skills and aspirations. In early years, opportunities for different types of learning, including through play, are effectively planned and enthusiastically taught. As a result, children are well prepared for learning in key stage 1.

Most parents are positive about the school and say that their children are safe and happy. Pupils behave well and are considerate to each other. Many have leadership responsibilities that allow them to make a positive contribution to school life.

Teachers do not ensure that they maintain sufficient challenge to promote the best possible progress over time. Teachers do not always ensure that pupils present their work well, and do not routinely challenge poor-quality work. Governors keep themselves informed about the school's progress and make a positive difference to pupils' learning and outcomes by holding leaders to account well.
