Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Since the last inspection, the headteacher, senior leaders and governors have worked successfully to improve the quality of education.

Senior leaders have improved teaching and overall, it is good. A culture of high expectations for all permeates the school. Standards of attainment across the school in reading, writing and mathematics have risen and are now above average by the end of Year 6.

Pupils are prepared well for secondary school. Children make an excellent start to learning in early years. They thrive in an environment that is exciting, safe and caring.

In key stages 1 and 2, all groups of pupils make good progress in En...glish and mathematics. Work is well matched to pupils' varying abilities. The most able pupils achieve well in these subjects.

An above-average proportion of pupils reach the higher standards by the end of Years 2 and 6. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and those who are disadvantaged make strong progress. A new, more exciting topic-based approach to the curriculum has been developed.

This is helping pupils to develop a wider range of knowledge and skills. Further work is needed, however, to develop pupils' knowledge of different religions and cultures. Pupils' behaviour in and out of lessons is good.

They are polite and well mannered and show good attitudes to learning. They often work together in pairs or groups and cooperate well. Safeguarding pupils is every adults' priority.

Pupils say that they feel safe and know that all adults in school care for them. Welfare and support for vulnerable children and their families are effective. New subject leaders receive considered support from senior leaders, more experienced leaders and the trust.

Their skills in checking the quality of teaching and pupils' work are not yet fully developed. Leaders and teachers give reading a high profile. Pupils read widely, including at home.

Teaching challenges pupils well to develop their reading skills. Phonics is well taught. Sometimes, the books younger pupils read are not well matched to their phonic knowledge.

In subjects beyond English and mathematics, pupils' skills and knowledge do not build consistently well on their prior learning. Tasks are not always pitched correctly for all ability groups. In particular, work for most-able pupils lacks challenge.
