Governors are highly effective in holding the school to account. They have an in-depth understanding of the school's priorities ...and follow these up thoroughly to ensure improvement. Staff are extremely vigilant in ensuring that pupils know how to keep themselves safe in and out of school.

They are extremely polite and welcoming and they are highly positive about their learning. Pupils develop their personal skills extremely well. The school provides a wide range of opportunities and activities for pupils to participate in at lunchtime and after school.

Sporting activities, musical events and visits make a strong impact on pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Disadvantaged pupils are catching up in their learning. They are closing the differences with the rest of the school and are making strong progress in comparison to other pupils nationally.

Children in the Nursery and Reception class make rapid progress with their learning. When the children leave the Reception class the number achieving a good level of development is above the national percentage, which prepares them well for Year 1. In foundation subjects, such as history and geography, middle leaders need to develop work that deepens all pupils' learning as the most able pupils are not achieving the high standards across the wider curriculum.
