Key Findings

This is a good school. Since her appointment in 2010, the headteacher's leadership has had significant impact in the school.

Good improvement is evident in many key areas of the school's work. As a result, attainment has risen and pupils' overall achievement has improved Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage are given a good start to their learning and development from broadly expected starting points for their age on entering Reception. Good progress continues as pupils move through the school because they are taught well.

Attainment at the end of Key Stage 1 is average and improving quickly. Pupils' current work in Year 6 indicates that most are on track to meet at least expected and significant numbers to achieve higher. The vast majority of pupils behave well around the school.

They are keen to learn and are diligent in lessons. Typically, they take pride in what they do and are mindful of others needs. Pupils say they feel safe and well cared for and this view is consistent with views expressed by parents and carers.

The quality of teaching and learning is mainly good and some is outstanding. Teaching has improved under the new leadership and contributes well to the school's effectiveness. Nevertheless, there is some less effective teaching in some lessons.

Leaders and managers enthuse and motivate the staff well. All share the vision for, and are committed to, school improvement. The headteacher and teachers are supported by an effective governing body.
