Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The acting headteacher has ensured that improvements in teaching and learning have continued. She has high expectations of teachers and pupils.

Pupils make good progress across the school, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics. They develop the skills they need to succeed in their learning, and reach standards which are above average by the end of Year 6. Different groups of pupils make similarly good progress, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, those who speak English as an additional language, and the most able.

Leaders frequently review the support given to pupils, and adapt it where necessa...ry. Teaching is good because senior leaders make sure teachers know what is necessary for good learning to take place.The school's constant focus on striving for excellence is increasing the rate of pupils' progress.

The early years provision is effective. Good teaching and well-planned activities ensure children develop the skills and knowledge they need to be confident learners. Behaviour is good because most pupils are eager to work hard.

When teachers harness this enthusiasm effectively, pupils produce a great deal of work. Pupils are proud of the work they do and make sure it is neatly presented. They particularly enjoy reading, which is taught well and strongly valued in the school.

Pupils feel very safe at school because they know the adults care about them. They are well informed about how to keep safe, for example when using the internet. They know that any worries will be dealt with quickly.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is exceptionally strong because it is given a high priority. Governors and leaders work together effectively to check how well the school is performing, and to continue bringing about improvements. They make sure all statutory requirements are met, particular about keeping pupils safe and secure.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers' explanations are not always clear enough for pupils. As a result, occasionally pupils do not know what they should do or how hard they should work. At times, this takes too long to rectify and limits the time pupils have to work.

When marking, a few teachers do not ensure that their comments are precise or detailed enough for pupils to know how to improve their work effectively. Pupils are not always given enough time to correct errors or improve their skills.
