Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Teaching is almost always good or better. There are some examples of outstanding teaching across the school that inspires pupils to achieve highly.

Best practice is now shared across the school. Leaders have secured strong improvements in teaching and in the rates of progress pupils make, since the last inspection. This is because leaders check the progress of pupils carefully.

Pupils make good progress from different starting levels across the school and reach standards above the national levels at the end of Year 6. The teaching of reading is strong across the school. Pupils get a good start by learning their letters and sounds (phonic...s) well and go on to read in groups and undertake more challenging reading activities effectively.

The leadership team communicate their high expectations to all staff. Governors support and challenge the school appropriately. Pupils' personal development is a strength of the school.

Behaviour is never less than good. It is sometimes exemplary in assemblies and in lessons where teaching is outstanding. This is reflected in pupils' highly positive attitudes and enthusiasm for learning.

Pupils understand each other's differences well so that pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is excellent. The good curriculum means that pupils have the chance to experience an extensive range of creative activities. These help pupils to enjoy learning and make good progress.

The headteacher and deputy headteacher have effectively created a well-motivated staff team where each person is striving to ensure all pupils learn as well as they can. Everyone is working to a common goal of becoming a better school. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Not enough teaching is yet outstanding.

Some of the most capable pupils in writing do not always reach the highest levels they could.
