Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Strong and effective leadership and governance have brought about substantial improvements since the last inspection. Improvements have been rapid since the arrival of the new headteacher in January 2016. Her strong leadership, supported by other senior and middle leaders, has brought about considerable improvements in teaching, pupils' achievement and behaviour.

Governors are highly ambitious for the school and are committed to continued improvement. They now provide a balance of effective support and challenge and this has contributed to improvement since the last inspection. There have been many changes in teaching staff since the last inspecti...on.

Because of effective training, high expectations and rigorous performance management, teaching across the school has improved and almost all teaching is now good or better. Pupils across the school, including those who are disadvantaged, are currently making strong progress in reading, writing and mathematics and a range of other subjects, including science, history, geography and physical education. The interesting curriculum supports pupils' development well.

Bright and colourful classrooms promote enjoyment of learning. The early years provision is well led and children in the Nursery and Reception classes make good progress from their starting points. Leaders recognise that there is more to do to ensure that the transition to Year 1 enables pupils to build rapidly on this good start.

Senior leaders are highly organised and effective in their work. Middle leaders have received effective support and guidance and this is enabling them to take increasingly effective action to bring about improvements in their areas. Pupils' attitudes to learning are very positive and most are keen to learn.

Behaviour is typically good in and out of the classroom. Occasionally when pupils are not appropriately challenged, their concentration slips. Pupils are confident and show pride in the school and their achievements.

During the inspection, they spoke politely with inspectors. Pupils are safe and well cared for. They also understand how to keep themselves safe, including when using the internet.

On occasion, pupils struggle to improve their work because teachers do not ensure that pupils respond to the guidance they receive.
