Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The headteacher provides strong leadership and direction and is very well supported by staff and governors. Leaders' thorough checks on teaching and learning have been instrumental in improving standards. Pupils achieve well.

They start school in the Early Years Foundation Stage with abilities broadly expected of children their age. By the time they leave in year 6, pupils are reaching standards well above that expected in reading, writing and maths. Pupils have good attitudes towards their learning.

They are keen, polite and well mannered. They work collaboratively and help each other to learn. Teaching is consistently good acr...oss the school.

Teachers have high expectations and create a positive climate for learning. The school promotes spiritual, social and moral development very successfully. As a result, pupils are reflective, are supportive of one another and build positive relationships with other pupils and staff.

Pupils feel safe in school. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teaching is not outstanding and consequently is not leading to outstanding progress for all groups, especially the most able. The school does not place the same emphasis on promoting cultural development as successfully as it does, social, moral and spiritual.

Not enough opportunity is given for younger pupils to develop and extend their answers in class. Subject leaders are not having sufficient impact on raising standards further. Senior leaders have not implemented highly successful links that ensures all parents are fully engaged with the work of the school.
