Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Leaders have ensured that rapid school improvement continues. The curriculum is an important strength of the school. Leaders have carefully considered how pupils can best acquire skills and knowledge as they progress through the school. Senior and middle leaders are effective in helping teachers and teaching assistants improve their practice. Pupils are making strong progress across a range of subjects. This is because teaching challenges pupils of all abilities well. Teachers develop pupils’ reading, writing and mathematical skills effectively. Pupils use these skills to help them learn well in other subjects. Children benefit from high-quality teaching in the early years. Disadvantaged pupils benefit from effective teaching which addresses any barriers to learning. Parents and carers are very positive. They value the school’s work, which encourages their children to be respectful of others and to value their diverse local community. Pupils conduct themselves very well, both during lessons and at breaktimes. They enjoy their learning and thrive on the challenging work set. Pupils are safe, and they know how to keep themselves safe. Although overall attendance rates are below the national average, pupils’ attendance is improving. Punctuality at the start of the school day could be improved further.
