Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Since the previous inspection, leaders have worked hard to drive improvement and eradicate weaknesses. Their efforts have been successful, and the school has continued to improve since the previous inspection.

Teachers and teaching assistants are well attuned to the needs of pupils. They question pupils well to find out what they know and understand and adapt their teaching to meet pupils' needs. Governors are skilled, well trained and know the school well.

They use their findings to challenge and support leaders to improve the school further. The local authority has worked closely with the school over the past few years. The high level o...f support put in place has helped staff to grow and develop.

As a result, the local authority now uses these colleagues to support other local schools. Pupils make strong progress in all subjects. High proportions attain at a high standard in mathematics and reading.

Nevertheless, teaching does not routinely equip pupils with the skills to write at a high standard. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding. In class, pupils thrive on the clear boundaries and instruction they receive.

They enjoy their lessons and work hard to do their very best. Pupils embody the school values of courage, love and respect. They are considerate of their peers, families and adults, both within and outside the school gates.

Pupils know how to look after their own mental health and how to keep safe. Children in the early years make a strong start and quickly adopt the excellent behaviour and attitudes seen in the rest of the school. They are taught to read well by skilled and caring staff.

Disadvantaged pupils make strong progress because, when they make mistakes or find learning hard, they are supported to get things right. However, plans to help these pupils do not set out clearly enough how they will be supported to attain at a high standard.
