Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The co-headteachers have successfully established a culture of high expectations for all leaders, staff and pupils. Since the last inspection, the quality of education provided by the school and pupils' outcomes have improved considerably. Leadership and management are much improved.

The governing body now provides strong support for school improvement and senior and middle leaders carry out their roles well. Leaders focus their efforts on ensuring that pupils in all year groups achieve well. Good-quality teaching and the effective use of assessment have led to a trend of improvement in pupils' attainment in reading, writing and mathematics and a ...range of other subjects.

Standards in writing remain below those in reading and mathematics. All groups of pupils make good progress from their varied starting points. The curriculum is suitably modified to meet the learning needs of the most able pupils, and also of those who find learning more difficult.

Disadvantaged pupils achieve well. Those who speak English as an additional language soon grow in confidence in their spoken and written English. The great majority of parents and carers are fully supportive of the school and would recommend it to other parents.

Not only do pupils achieve well in English and mathematics, but also achieve well in a wide range of other subjects. Pupils do particularly well in art and design, music, physical education and games (PE) and in Spanish. The school's ethos and curriculum give high priority to pupils' spiritual moral, social and cultural development.

Pupils are thoughtful and considerate to one another and form good relationships with adults in the school. Teachers use their good subject knowledge and questioning to good effect. Staff are particularly skilful at using pupils' mistakes and misconceptions to help pupils overcome any difficulties they have in their learning.

Safeguarding is effective. Pupils behave safely and act with respect for the safety of others. A strong culture of safeguarding is evident throughout the school.

Pupils' behaviour around the school and in lessons is good. They respond sensibly and calmly to routines and instructions and are keen learners. Rates of attendance have been persistently below average recently.

The school has undertaken some work to address this weakness, but the impact of this work is not sufficiently evident.
