Key findings

This is a good school. The outstanding spiritual ethos enables pupils to develop a strong set of values which they consistently refer to.

Good quality safeguarding ensures pupils feel safe. Pupils' achievement is good overall as they make good progress from their starting points. Attainment in English and mathematics is in line with national averages and improving.

The school is not yet outstanding because pupils are not yet fully challenged in order to ensure rapid and sustained progress across the whole curriculum. The systems for monitoring progression in skills in subjects other than English and mathematics are also not yet fully established. Leaders and managers, including the governing b...ody, have a clear focus on the right priorities to improve the school further.

The leadership of teaching and the management of performance have been effective in improving teaching and learning across the school. This is clear in the improved provision and teaching and therefore rising attainment in the Early Years Foundation Stage. It is also evident in the improved teaching of mathematics, particularly in Key Stage 1, resulting in tasks that are more relevant and standards that are beginning to rise.

Skilled teaching of the sounds that letters make (phonics) enables pupils to develop successful strategies for reading and writing and achieve well. Well- planned support for disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, and those who speak English as an additional language, ensures that they make good and sometimes outstanding progress. Teaching is mainly good, with some outstanding practice evident across the school.

Exciting and well-resourced starters to lessons engage pupils' interest and enthusiasm. They understand the tasks they are set and how they will know if they have been successful. However, occasionally these tasks lack challenge and progress slows.

Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. They respect and support each other. Adults give well-targeted support to pupils who find this difficult and as a result there is no disruption to learning.
