Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The co-headteachers lead the school with passion and determination.

They have established an ambitious and positive ethos which is helping to drive improvement. Dedicated staff are fully supportive. Effective leaders at all levels are committed to enabling further improvement and are developing well.

Highly committed governors carry out their duties conscientiously and visit the school regularly. Leaders have improved the quality of teaching, which is now good overall. The teaching of English is particularly effective.

However, there are some inconsistencies in teaching, and not all pupils are supported or challenged enough to do... their best. The 2018 key stage 2 results, alongside the good progress of current pupils, clearly show that the school has recovered from the weaker outcomes of the past. Pupils' achievement is not as strong in mathematics as it is in reading and writing.

Teachers and teaching assistants provide effective support for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Pupils' behaviour is good. Pupils are keen to learn.

Strong relationships between staff and pupils help pupils feel secure and promote their learning and personal development well. Pupils are happy and thrive because they are well looked after in a caring environment. Individual academic, social and emotional needs are carefully identified and supported.

Vulnerable pupils and their families benefit from timely and effective support when required. Leaders ensure that pupils enjoy a wide curriculum that is enhanced through enrichment activities and extra-curricular activities. Learning in subjects other than English and mathematics is highly valued.

Parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school.
