He works well with other leaders, staff and governors so that all pupils make good progress. Leaders provide good training for teachers to improve their skills. Leaders are well trained and thi...s helps them to be effective in their roles.

The school is improving. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils do not always fully follow the guidance they are given on how to improve their work. Teachers do not always make sure that pupils know what the next steps in learning are so pupils can make links to previous work to help them move on in their learning.

Sometimes teachers' questioning does not involve enough pupils in discussing what is being learned. Occasionally teachers talk for too long so that pupils do not have enough time to learn on their own.

Information about this school

The school is average in size.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups has increased since the time of the previous inspection. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is broadly average and a very small number are in the early stages of learning English. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is below average, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with statements of special educational needs is above average.

The school has a small number of pupils with a combination of learning and emotional difficulties. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is low. This is additional government funding given to schools for children looked after by the local authority, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who have a parent in the armed forces.

Currently there are no pupils with a parent in the armed services. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. There is a privately managed and run preschool on the school's site which was not inspected at this time.
