Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher provides inspirational and effective leadership.

She is persistent in her drive to improve all aspects of the school so that pupils have every opportunity to succeed. Strong senior leaders share the headteacher's vision and ambition and drive the school forward. Leaders make this a special place in which to learn and work.

Everyone is valued and respected and all work together as a team. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good because of the effective action taken by senior leaders. Developing middle leaders will help to achieve greater consistency of good teaching and more pupils would make strong progres...s across the curriculum.

Pupils are extremely polite, and their behaviour is impeccable. Pupils feel very safe at school. They have a thorough understanding about how to keep safe, and help one another to do so.

They are well supported by the school's meticulous attention to detail for the safety of everyone. All pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), or who are disadvantaged, and those who speak English as an additional language, make good progress. Children in the Nursery and Reception classes benefit from very high levels of care and support.

They make outstanding progress from their different starting points. The large majority of parents and carers are very supportive of the school. They believe that their children are well cared for and make strong progress in their learning.

Leaders and staff make a strong contribution to pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain because they are taught to be tolerant and show respect for other people's beliefs. They appreciate the importance of understanding what is right and wrong.

Governors have a good knowledge of the school and community and contribute well to the continual drive to improve the school. They are effective in supporting leaders and holding them to account, but should be checking progress more regularly against the school improvement plan. The school's curriculum is very engaging and supports pupils' progress well.

However, in some subjects, more thought should be given to the knowledge and skills that need to be taught in order for pupils to deepen their learning effectively.
