Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher leads a caring, inclusive school.

Leaders' recent work to merge two separate schools into one has been successful. Leaders' evaluation of the school's strengths and weaknesses is accurate. The priorities to develop are the right ones.

Middle leaders are confident and enthusiastic. Their potential to have a greater impact on improving the school is clear to see. The curriculum meets the needs of pupils well.

Enrichment and extra-curricular activities are appreciated and enjoyed by pupils. The quality of teaching is good, leading to good outcomes for most pupils across all phases of the school. Children get off to a... good start in Nursery and Reception.

Leadership and management of the early years are strong. Governance is a growing strength of the school. Governors are dedicated and active in the day-to-day life of the school.

Pupils behave well. They are keen to learn and show a pride in themselves, their work, and the school overall. Pupils' social and emotional development are supported well by the curriculum and the school's distinctive Catholic ethos.

This includes pupils from vulnerable groups. The local authority has provided good-quality support to the school over time. This has been particularly successful in improving the quality of teaching, learning and assessment.

Safeguarding is effective. All staff understand that they have a key role in keeping pupils safe. Most pupils enjoy learning and make good progress in a range of subjects.

However, pupils from vulnerable groups do not make as much progress as they could. Although leaders have reduced absence, rates of persistent absence for pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds are too high.
