Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher is a strong and determined leader. Working with his effective leadership team, he has meticulously addressed the areas for improvement from the previous inspection.

Leadership demonstrates a good capacity for further improvement. Governors and trust board members provide robust support and challenge to school leaders. They have the skills, experience and expertise to offer highly effective strategic leadership.

Leaders, including governors, use pupils' performance information skilfully as they pursue improvements in teaching and learning. Children get off to a good start in the early years. Children are keen, enthusiastic ...learners.

Consequently, they make good progress. Phonics is taught well. Pupils quickly develop a love of reading.

They enjoy a wide range of attractive books in the school and class libraries. Pupils make strong progress across the school in reading, writing and mathematics. Results of national assessments have improved year on year.

However, too few pupils are reaching the higher standard. This is particularly the case in writing. Safeguarding procedures are effective and ensure pupils' safety.

A culture of safeguarding permeates all aspects of school life. The quality of teaching is strong, leading to good progress. However, at times, the most able pupils are not sufficiently challenged and the work set for them is too easy.

Educational trips, visits to museums and local places of interest, and regular visitors enhance the school's engaging curriculum. Pupils' behaviour is good. Their attitudes to learning are positive and they are keen to improve.

Relationships between staff and pupils are very positive. Attendance rates are improving but there is a small group of pupils who are persistently absent. This has a negative impact on their achievement.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, as well as their appreciation of British values, is good. This is evident in the good-quality discussions pupils have in lessons and in the way in which they treat one another. Parents and carers are highly complimentary about the school.

They say their children are happy, safe and progressing well.
