Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher provides effective leadership and is well supported by the deputy headteacher and senior leadership team. She has addressed the issues that were preventing improvement in teaching.

She has worked tirelessly to improve teaching so that pupils fulfil their potential. Teaching, learning and assessment are good across the school. Teachers and other adults who work at the school share the high expectations that leaders have for pupils.

All pupils, including those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, or who are disadvantaged, make good progress from their respective starting points and across all subjects in a... wide and stimulating curriculum. Leaders and staff make sure that the most vulnerable pupils are supported effectively. The school supports the development of the most able pupils and tracks their progress rigorously to make sure that they maintain the highest standards.

Pupils behave well around the school and in lessons. They appreciate what teachers and other adults do to help them learn and make progress. They feel safe at school and are taught how to keep themselves safe.

Nursery and Reception classes benefit from a welcoming learning environment and effective teaching. As a result, children enjoy learning, are safe and are well prepared for learning in Year 1. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength of the school.

Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain because they are taught to be tolerant, to respect the beliefs of others and the importance of understanding what is right and wrong. Governors have refocused their activities and developed their skills through training since the previous inspection. They now have a clear understanding of how the school is doing.

As a result, they can support leaders effectively and hold them to account. Teaching in key stage 1 and lower key stage 2 is occasionally less effective than the more consistently strong practice in upper key stage 2. Administrative systems are in some instances not as effective as they could be in allowing leaders to gain swift access to the key information they need to monitor key areas of the school and inform their next steps.
