Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and deputy headteacher provide high-quality leadership. They are assisted very effectively by leaders at all levels and by an extremely strong governing body.

School leaders work in unison to sustain a strong drive for improvement. Teaching is good. Leaders ensure that it is strengthened further through focused professional development for all staff.

Consequently, an increasing amount of outstanding teaching accelerates pupils' progress, especially in Years 5 and 6. Pupils enjoy school because of the outstanding curriculum and wide range of sporting clubs and activities provided for them. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social a...nd cultural development is strong.

The pupils' respect of each other's differing backgrounds underpins their good understanding of British values. Parents and teachers share a productive partnership that also supports the pupils' above- average attendance. All staff provide high levels of care and welfare.

They sustain a welcoming atmosphere and safeguard pupils effectively. As a result, pupils feel safe and behave well. The pupils' very positive attitudes to learning and relationships with each other and with staff underpin their good progress.

The pupils' good levels of skill, knowledge and understanding prepare them well for their future education. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The school's new assessment system does not always provide leaders with clear enough information to help pupils who find learning difficult make best progress. The handwriting and spelling skills of some lower attaining pupils in Years 3 and 4 need further improvement.

At times, a few pupils are not encouraged to think and learn enough for themselves.
