Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school. Pupils achieve well in all subjects and in all parts of the school. Teaching is usually good and encourages all pupils to do their best and produce work of good quality. Behaviour in lessons is always good. Pupils are confident, polite and courteous. They feel safe in school. They enjoy their lessons and are well prepared for the next steps in their education. The headteacher has high expectations and sets high standards. She is well supported by the staff team and governors in creating a lively and caring place for children to learn and succeed. There is a very good range of extra activities and opportunities for pupils to excel in particular sports. Parents praise the school and its teachers highly and are pleased with the care and encouragement given to their children. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Some lessons do not challenge all pupils and more-able pupils in particular. Pupils are not always sure of what it is they need to do next in order to improve their work. Governors do not use data confidently to challenge leaders and teachers to further improve pupil achievement.
