Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Since the previous inspection, the headteacher and senior leaders have taken decisive action to bring about improvement. This has resulted in improving standards across the school. Leaders have established a positive learning culture where pupils work with concentration, commitment and enjoyment. The governing body provides effective support and challenge for school leaders. While leaders routinely monitor the quality of teaching and learning, they do not monitor the impact of their actions on pupils? outcomes rigorously enough. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good. Teachers have high expectations of pupils and plan learning that is suitably challenging. As a result of effective teaching, the vast majority of pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. In a small number of classes, and in some foundation subjects, teachers? expectations are not high enough. Consequently, the progress that some pupils make is inconsistent. Pupils have positive attitudes to their learning. They take great care with the presentation of their work. Pupils? behaviour is good. Their conduct around the school is calm and orderly. They show kindness and consideration to one another. Typically, pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress. The identification and assessment of their needs, however, are not precise enough. Support plans are not focused enough to enable them to catch up. Children get off to a good start in the early years. Good teaching enables children to make strong progress from their starting points. Safeguarding is effective. Leaders have established a culture where pupils are well looked after. The school?s curriculum and well-established Christian values are effective in supporting pupils? spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and their understanding of fundamental British values.
