Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher, together with his skilled leadership team and governors, has maintained the good quality of education provided by the school since the previous inspection. Despite changes to the staff team, the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good.

This is because school leaders provide effective support to teachers to help them to improve their skills. Most pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. This is because : teachers plan work that is at the right level for most pupils.

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress because they receive additional help fro...m skilled teaching assistants. Pupils are happy and they enjoy school. They have very positive attitudes towards learning and they behave well in school.

They feel safe in school due to the high quality of care that staff provide. The curriculum is very well planned and provides pupils with extensive opportunities to use their literacy skills when learning other subjects. School leaders promote values such as respect, tolerance and understanding through assemblies and through the wider curriculum.

Consequently, pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted well. Leaders at all levels have an accurate understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of their areas of expertise. They have well-founded plans in place for further improvements.

School leaders are outward looking and seek to build on partnerships with local schools as well as further afield. They also access support from the local authority to enable them to be even more effective in their roles. Overall the quality of pupils' writing is good.

However, some pupils do not spell or punctuate their work as accurately as they should. Some pupils do not write neatly or present their work as well as they should. There is not always a high enough level of challenge for the most able pupils.

As a result, too few pupils are working at the higher levels across the school. While pupils study a broad range of subjects to some depth, there is not always enough coverage of science in some year groups.
