Leaders have taken effective action to ensure that the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is typically good and improving rapidly.

Together with a highly dedicated staff team, they are committed to improving the school further. Pupils behave well and take great pride in their school. They enjoy learning and are ...excited about the wide range of activities on offer.

Pupils are safe and cared for well. Punnetts Town is a nurturing school where all pupils are made to feel welcome. The leadership of provision for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is strong.

Pupils with SEND and those who are vulnerable are supported to a high standard. Their emotional well-being needs are cared for particularly well. As a result, pupils with SEND make strong progress.

Children in the early years are happy and confident. Children make good progress from their starting points and are ready to achieve well when they start Year 1. Leaders have ensured that pupils enjoy an exciting curriculum.

Pupils have a breadth of knowledge on a wide range of topics. However, opportunities to improve specific skills, in subjects other than English, mathematics and science, are not always sequenced effectively to build on pupils' skills and knowledge. The work of some middle leaders is underdeveloped.

Some are new to their roles and have not had time to lead improvements in the quality of teaching in their subjects. The most able pupils are not yet achieving well enough. Sometimes teaching lacks challenge for these pupils.
