Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, leaders and governors have ensured that the quality of teaching has improved rapidly since the previous inspection. Across all year groups, pupils currently in the school are making good progress.

This includes the most able pupils and those who are disadvantaged. Pupils who have special educational needs and/ or disabilities are now making strong, sometimes exceptional, progress. This is because their needs are better identified and supported effectively.

The school promotes a culture of reading that leads to pupils reading well and having a love of reading. Pupils enjoy learning, are keen to improve their work and behav...e well. They feel safe at school because they are listened to by adults.

They know if they have a concern or worry adults will help them. Their parents overwhelmingly agree with this view. Pupils' reasoning in mathematics is good because they have regular opportunities to explain their thinking.

Pupils across the school write purposefully and with enthusiasm. This is because they are effectively taught the key skills they need to write well. Governors challenge school leaders rigorously, holding them to account for pupils' attainment.

The curriculum engages the interest of pupils and provides them with opportunities to extend the skills they have learned in English and mathematics across a range of subjects. It provides particularly well for pupils' social, moral, spiritual and cultural development. The feedback pupils receive about their work is not always in line with the school's marking policy.

It does not tell pupils clearly what to do to improve their work. Some pupils do not get a regular opportunity to respond to the feedback their teachers give them. In mathematics, teachers' questioning does not always challenge the most able pupils to extend their reasoning and understanding to the greatest depth.

The information that the school provides to parents on the progress their children are making is not always clear enough.
