Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

Children make rapid progress in the Reception year due to outstanding teaching and very effective leadership. Teaching is good. Teachers and support staff make sure pupils work hard and know how to succeed.

They secure equality of opportunity by making sure all groups of pupils achieve well. Pupils behave with impeccably good manners and look after one another well. They have excellent attitudes to learning.

Pupils have also been taught very well to consider their own safety in a wide variety of circumstances. The headteacher, aided by his deputy, has built a strong and happy learning community with very clear shared values. Lea...ders have secured the good quality of teaching and are making sure that new teachers quickly understand the school's policies and expectations.

Pupils are taught to consider the moral implications of their actions exceptionally well. Parents are overwhelmingly and effusively supportive of the school. Governors have a well-informed understanding of teaching and learning.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is not outstanding because the work teachers ask pupils to do is not always at the right level for them. Leaders do not use the information they have about pupil achievement effectively enough when checking on teaching and setting targets for success.
