Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The headteacher's and deputy headteacher's relentless drive for improvement has resulted in significant improvement to teaching, pupils' achievement and behaviour. Pupils across the school make good progress because teaching is good and sometimes outstanding. A varied range of activities caters for the different abilities and interests of pupils and ensures good attention in lessons.

Pupils are proud of and care about themselves, each other and the school. They enjoy school and want to do well. Pupils' warm welcome to new starters helps them to make friends quickly and, in particular, helps those who speak another language to learn Engli...sh rapidly.

Governors ensure that staff training is making a positive difference to the quality of teaching and pupils' progress. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers do not share and review targets with pupils often enough to help them to make the necessary improvements to their work independently. Pupils are not always given enough opportunity in lessons to talk about their learning and so develop their vocabulary and language skills.

Information about individual pupils' progress is not used sufficiently to identify whether all groups of pupils are making enough progress throughout the year in order to reach the school's challenging targets for their attainment.
