Key Findings

This is a good school because teaching is good and the curriculum meets pupils' needs well. All pupils are cared for and nurtured exceptionally well. The school's overall effectiveness is not outstanding because the school's use of assessment information, particularly in mathematics, is not fully developed.

Pupils' achievement is good. Attainment in English at the end of Key Stage 2 is above average. In recent years, attainment in mathematics has not as been as high as that seen in English.

However, progress seen in lessons and in the school's tracking data, shows that progress in reading, writing and mathematics is accelerating for all groups of pupils. Teaching is good. Respectful relationsh...ips between staff and pupils promote a calm, purposeful atmosphere for learning.

In most lessons, the activities have a clear learning purpose and pupils of all abilities receive an appropriate level of challenge and support. The school keeps careful records of how well pupils are doing and uses this information well to identify pupils who may be at risk of falling behind. These pupils are then provided with extra help and support.

However, the use of on-going assessment to help teachers plan for next steps in learning, and to give feedback to pupils about what they need to do next to improve their work, is underdeveloped. Pupils' behaviour is good. Pupils feel safe and report that bullying, 'Just does not happen here because everyone is kind and helpful'.

Procedures for managing risk are effective. The headteacher leads teaching effectively and manages teachers' performance well. Staff and governors have a clear understanding of the school's strengths and areas for further development.

Good teamwork at all levels helps to drive forward school improvement and ensures that all in the school community feel valued.
