Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress. By the end of Year 6, they reach standards that are above average in reading, writing and mathematics. Teaching is good and pupils respond positively to their teachers’ expectations of them. Teachers’ subject knowledge, expertise and enthusiasm inspire pupils to want to succeed Disabled pupils, those who have special educational needs and those for whom the school receives additional funding make good progress because of good support. Pupils’ behaviour is good. They have positive attitudes and are proud of their school. They feel safe and show great care and respect for adults and for each other. The school gives pupils rich and stimulating learning experiences. Topics and themes are enhanced by exciting trips and visits. This helps to motivate them and contributes strongly to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Leadership is good at all levels. Leaders are committed to continually improving the school, and are valued and supported by staff and pupils. Governors know the school well and provide good levels of support and challenge. This helps ensure that teaching and pupils’ achievement continue to improve. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers do not always set challenging enough work for pupils in their classes. School leaders’ plans to improve the school further are not linked closely enough to information on pupils’ progress.
