Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Standards are well above average by the end of Year 6 and pupils achieve well across the school.

Children get off to a good start in Reception, settle quickly and love learning. All groups of pupils make good progress, including those supported by additional government funding. Teaching is consistently strong in all classes with some outstanding elements.

Teachers have high expectations of pupils and make learning fun so that pupils want to do their best. Pupils take a pride in their work and almost always take note of their teachers' advice in their books to improve their learning. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding.

The older pu...pils are excellent role models for the younger ones. Pupils say they feel completely safe at school, a view supported by all parents who expressed an opinion. The new headteacher has worked extremely effectively with staff and governors to drive improvement and build on the school's many existing strengths.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : At times the most-able pupils are not given sufficiently demanding work to do, especially in Year 2. Pupils are sometimes unable to fulfil their numerous targets in writing and mathematics effectively.
