Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school School leaders have a good understanding of the school.

Their self-evaluation and plans for school improvement identify accurately areas in need of further development. Governance is strong. Governors provide an appropriate balance of challenge and support to senior leaders and understand what the school needs to do to improve further.

The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good. Pupils develop a secure knowledge and understanding from their different starting points. They make good progress overall in English and mathematics.

Teachers and teaching assistants work well together to motivate pupils and ensure their goo...d progress. Pupils feel safe in school. They have positive relationships with staff and enjoy being at school.

Pupils' behaviour is good. Their attitudes to learning and school are positive. Pupils are confident and self-assured.

Leadership of the early years is good. Teachers have high expectations and a thorough knowledge of each child's individual needs and interests. As a result, children make good progress.

Parents are positive about the school. They confirm that outcomes for pupils are improving and that the school works effectively to keep their children safe. Some pupils, particularly those in key stage 1, do not achieve the standards they are capable of in mathematics.

This is because they are unable to confidently use and apply calculation strategies to support their mathematical reasoning and development. The most able pupils are not challenged consistently to use their skills to write at length and to demonstrate their ability to reach the higher standards in the end of year tests in key stage 2. While pupils make good progress overall in writing, for too many the presentation of their work, including handwriting, is not as good as it could be.
