Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Under the good leadership of the headteacher and senior leaders, there has been a successful drive to improve pupils' achievement and the quality of teaching throughout the school. Senior leaders are well supported by other leaders and governors. Together, they have successfully addressed the dip in some areas of pupils' performance since the previous inspection.

As a result of the good quality of teaching, pupils make good progress in their reading, writing and mathematics. They are well prepared for the next stage in their education. In tests of their spelling, punctuation and grammar, pupils consistently achieve standards above the na...tional average.

Their writing skills are in line with the national average. The most able pupils reach high standards in reading, writing and particularly mathematics because of the school's high expectations for their achievement. Standards in reading and mathematics are consistently above national averages.

The school provides good support for the very small numbers of disadvantaged pupils, as well as for those who are disabled pupils or who have special educational needs. They make similar progress to other pupils. Pupils' behaviour is good.

They are courteous and polite. As a result of strong relationships between adults and pupils, attitudes to learning are very positive. Pupils learn to be safe in school, outside of school and on the internet, and so safety is good.

Pupils' artistic and cultural development is very well promoted through lessons and activities, such as the school's own orchestra. The school has a strong commitment to sports and the physical well-being of all pupils. This also leads to many pupils successfully competing at an exceptionally high level.

It is not yet an outstanding school because: The longer writing tasks that teachers set do not always provide pupils with the opportunity to extend and develop their skills. Parents and carers are not always clear how to find school information and how best to communicate any queries or concerns they may have.
