Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, conscientiously supported by the deputy headteacher, leads the school well.

He has an accurate view of the school's strengths and a clear view of the areas for improvement. Standards are rising across the school. The vast majority of pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

For some pupils progress is rapid. Pupils' progress in reading, however, is not as rapid as it is in writing and mathematics. The headteacher meticulously checks on the quality of teaching and learning.

This has led to improvements in the quality of teaching, which is now typically good. T...eachers plan interesting learning activities. They match the activities they set to pupils' needs.

Teachers use skilled questioning to check pupils' understanding. Teaching assistants provide high-quality support for pupils. They work well as part of the teaching team and play an important role in accelerating pupils' progress.

Subject leaders are enthusiastic about, and committed to, their respective roles. They make a valuable contribution to improving the school's effectiveness. Pupils are fluent in the use of their mathematical skills.

Teachers do not, however, provide enough opportunities for pupils to solve problems and to explain their learning. All staff help pupils to keep safe. Pupils behave well.

They are considerate towards adults and to each other. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. Children in the early years make good progress.

Adults provide a caring and engaging learning environment. Children work happily and cooperatively together. Most pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities make good progress.

However, procedures to measure which actions best help pupils to catch up are not thorough enough. Pupils benefit from a broad and interesting curriculum. However, leaders do not yet check on pupils' progress well enough in the subjects other than English and mathematics.

The members of the academy trust know the school well. They provide valuable support for school leaders and challenge them appropriately. Parents value the school's work.

They are particularly pleased with leaders' and staff's communication with them.
