Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders are ambitious for the school. They have worked hard to successfully drive improvements. As a result, outcomes, teaching and behaviour have improved.

The trust provides effective challenge and support. As a result, leaders have successfully tackled all areas identified at the time of the last inspection as requiring improvement. Leaders gather assessment information from a range of different sources.

However, this sometimes leads to variations in results produced. Additionally, some teachers' assessments of pupils' writing are too high. Teaching is good.

Teachers provide pupils with regular opportunities to use and apply t...heir skills in reading and mathematics. However, pupils' writing skills are not as well developed, and their skills in spelling, punctuation and grammar are not secure. Leaders make effective use of the additional funding for disadvantaged pupils.

Consequently, these pupils make as much progress as their classmates. Excellent use is made of the sports funding received. Pupils hugely enjoy and benefit from the strong focus placed on being physically and mentally fit.

Leaders have developed a well-balanced curriculum. Enrichment activities are a strength. Pupils, parents and staff all spoke passionately about the excellent and exciting range of activities offered.

Safeguarding is effective. Leaders ensure that when concerns are raised, they are dealt with in a timely way, ensuring that pupils are kept safe. Pupils work hard, enjoy their learning and behave well.

They say they feel safe in school and that everyone gets on well together. Leaders strongly promote the importance of regular attendance. As a result, attendance is above average for all groups of pupils.

Progress at the end of key stage 2, in 2018, was significantly above the national average in all subjects. Work in pupils' books shows that current pupils are making good progress. Most parents and carers are highly supportive of the school and value the recent improvements.

Pupils from all backgrounds work and play together happily. However, pupils do not have a secure understanding of fundamental British values.
