Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders are highly aspirational for the future of the school and its pupils. A relentless drive and ambition from the leadership team, governors and the trust have ensured that the school remains on a continuous trajectory of improvement.

Since her appointment in 2017, the headteacher has wasted no time in addressing the quality of teaching and learning and outcomes for pupils. As a result, both have improved and are now good. Leaders have made strategic appointments to continue to drive the school forward.

Staff work together well and share good practice. They value the support and professional development they receive from the trust. Le...aders have planned a curriculum that meets the needs and interests of pupils well.

The curriculum is carefully sequenced to build on pupils' previous learning. Subject themes address sensitive and current issues so that pupils' social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is strong. The quality of teaching and provision in early years is good and as a result, children are well prepared for Year 1.

Parents appreciate the positive changes and the visible differences that have been made in school. Teachers use assessment effectively to plan appropriate work for pupils. They now provide the most able pupils with greater challenge.

However, on occasion, pupils require more support to deepen their knowledge and understanding. Sometimes, in mathematics, pupils are not confident to apply the skills that they already have to harder challenges. Most pupils take a pride in their work.

However, the quality of handwriting, presentation and spelling is inconsistent, especially in key stage 1. Pupils behave well. They are polite and courteous and enjoy their learning.

They respond well to adults in school and know that they are well cared for. Safeguarding is a strength of the school. A high level of vigilance and strong links with external agencies ensure that pupils and families receive the right support at the right time.

Disadvantaged pupils and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are well supported and as a result make strong progress.
