Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The school has improved considerably since its last inspection due to the strong leadership and hard work of the headteacher, teachers and governing body. The school evaluates how well it is doing and what needs to be done next accurately.

Current standards at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 are in line with those seen nationally. Leaders, managers and the governing body have made sure that teaching and learning are good in all classes. Teachers show good subject knowledge and promote learning well.

Pupils benefit from a good variety of exciting additional activities and experiences throughout the year. These include visits, residential sta...ys and visitors to the school. Pupils' behaviour and attitudes are good and this contributes strongly to the good learning in lessons.

They say they feel safe in school and are aware of the different forms of bullying. The school accurately evaluates how well it is doing and what needs to be done next to improve. It is not yet an outstanding school because : There are not enough planned opportunities or resources for children in the Reception class to learn to find things out for themselves outdoors.

Some teachers do not always give pupils of different ages and abilities sufficiently demanding work and, in a small minority of lessons, the pace of learning slows after a good brisk start.

Information about this school

The inspector observed 10 lessons, three of which were joint observations with the headteacher. Meetings and discussions were held with governors, members of staff, a representative of the local authority and groups of pupils.

There were insufficient responses to the online questionnaire for parents and carers (Parent View) to allow analysis. The inspector observed the school's work and looked at a number of documents, including the school's own data on pupil mobility, pupils' current progress, planning and monitoring documentation, records relating to behaviour and attendance, and documents relating to safeguarding. Since the previous inspection, the school has been through a prolonged period of significant changes in staffing.
