Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Following disappointing results in 2017, leaders' swift action has brought about rapid improvement.

Current pupils are now making good progress across a range of subjects. The headteacher acts with determination and sets high expectations for staff and pupils. This has helped to ensure that the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good.

Leaders have used training well to tackle weaknesses identified at the previous inspection. Governors are committed to the school. They use their skills effectively to support the school and contribute to its continuous improvement.

A carefully constructed curriculum provides pupils wit...h opportunities to study different subjects. It contributes well to their academic progress and personal development. Teachers plan tasks that meet the needs of all pupils effectively.

Teachers ask good questions to check pupils' understanding and provide help for those that need it. Pupils are proud of their achievements. They welcome the guidance they receive from their teachers and the care shown by all the staff.

The pastoral support for pupils helps to ensure that they feel safe at school. Exciting and engaging activities ensure that children make good progress in the early years. Pupils are taught to write well.

They write for different purposes and apply their skills across the curriculum. This means they are writing with increasing fluency and expression. The teaching of phonics is good.

Pupils have a secure understanding of the sounds letters make and use it well to read and write. Disadvantaged pupils and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) receive well-targeted support. This ensures that they make good progress.

Subject leaders have embraced their roles enthusiastically. They are continuing to develop their skills, but do not yet have a full understanding of how well pupils achieve across the curriculum. There have been significant improvements in the teaching of mathematics.

However, teachers do not routinely plan opportunities to develop pupils' reasoning skills. Many parents say that pupils are looked after well. However, some parents do not consider that leaders address poor behaviour effectively or respond quickly to their concern.
