This is a good school Cohesion in school improvement direction from school leaders, governors and the trust has resulted in strong teaching and good outcomes for pupils. The proportion of pupils reaching expected standards at the end of each key stage in reading, writing and mathematics is at least similar to, and sometimes better than, the national averages in these subjects.
Many pupils make accelerated progress through key stage 1. The proportion of pupils working at higher standards increases from early years to the end of Year 2. The school's core values of care, collaboration and challenge permeate all aspects of school life and have a positive effect on the prog...ress pupils make.
Leaders are keen to develop this work further by supporting pupils in using their initiative, becoming more independent and developing their leadership skills. Good teaching in early years ensures that children make good progress through Nursery and Reception. Leaders have made a positive start to developing the outdoor learning areas.
However, they know that opportunities to engage children in practising their reading and writing skills outdoors need developing. Pupils display positive attitudes to learning and are eager to please the adults in school. They are polite and enjoy talking about their learning.
Their behaviour in classrooms and around school is very good. Pupils make good progress in most subjects that are delivered through the school's vibrant curriculum. However, although some aspects of British values are taught in assemblies and lessons, pupils' understanding of different faiths and cultures, and equality, is limited.
Well-organised and effective support for pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities and those who are disadvantaged results in pupils making good progress from their different starting points. The vast majority of parents and carers are very pleased with the quality of education and care their children receive. Safeguarding is effective because leaders have made sure that everyone knows, and is regularly updated on, the policies and procedures in place to keep pupils safe.
Pupils are taught how to keep safe. However, leaders agree that further work is needed to ensure that pupils have a deeper understanding of the appropriateness of online applications.
