Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and governors have acted decisively to bring about improvements since the previous inspection. Pupils make good progress from their starting points because teaching is effective.

Progress is particularly quick in reading because the teaching of phonics is good. Checks on teaching and learning are rigorous and systematic. Carefully tailored support and training, along with challenging targets, means that teachers' performance is developed effectively.

Teaching is now good. Teachers plan activities that interest and engage pupils. All groups of pupils learn well in reading, writing and mathematics.

The curriculum covers an ...exciting range of subjects, topics and experiences. The school promotes pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well, so that pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. The curriculum interests and motivates pupils.

The most able pupils are not consistently challenged, which means that they do not make the same progress from their starting points as others. In the early years, children are well cared for and make good progress. Teachers and teaching assistants develop children's skills effectively, leading imaginative learning and play activities skilfully.

Pupils behave well and have positive attitudes to learning. They take pride in their work and their school. Pupils are safe, confident and well cared for.

There are positive relationships with adults who know individual pupils well. Leaders, including governors, have grasped what needs to be done and have provided effective support to staff to improve teaching and learning. Pupils' writing skills have improved but are not as strong as their reading and mathematical skills.

Pupils do not have enough times to write extended pieces of work often enough to allow them to improve their use of different structures and styles. Teachers do not consistently check that pupils are learning quickly enough. Consequently, the progress pupils make sometimes slows.
