Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school Leaders, governors and staff have successfully improved the school since the previous inspection. Outcomes for pupils have improved. Pupils now make good progress in all key stages. The wide choice of clubs and activities, in which many pupils take part, helps provide a broad and balanced experience of learning. The quality of teaching is good because pupils enjoy learning and most develop their ideas and skills well. Pupils say that teachers provide clear explanations and feedback which helps them to improve their work. Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities are provided with carefully organised support, which staff ably deliver. This develops pupils’ learning well. As a result of effective teaching, the number of pupils achieving the expected standard in the Year 1 phonics screening check is above the national average and improving. Pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare are good. Pupils are courteous to each other and to the adults who help them learn and develop. Disruptive behaviour of any form is rare. Pupils have an excellent knowledge of how to keep themselves safe. Parents are very supportive of the school and recognise the good-quality care that their children receive to help them become confident individuals. Senior leaders are ambitious and have raised expectations across the school. Improved staff training and a clear understanding of responsibilities have helped improve learning for all groups of pupils. Almost all disadvantaged pupils achieve as well as other pupils nationally. Until recently, leaders have not paid enough attention to ensuring that the most able and most able disadvantaged pupils make similar rates of progress to other pupils nationally with the same starting points. The early years foundation stage is good. Children get off to a good start and achieve well. However, assessments of children’s skills on entry to the Reception Year sometimes do not accurately identify what children already know and can do. Therefore, planned activities and tasks do not always move their learning on quickly enough.
