Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher's determined and effective leadership, supported by governors, has promoted rapid and significant improvement. Pupils enjoy their learning in lessons and through the wider curriculum.

The school community is supportive and vibrant. Pupils behave well. They support each other's learning because relationships are positive.

They are keen to find out new things and share ideas. They keep trying if they find something difficult, and they work hard. The school promotes pupils' personal development and welfare effectively.

Pupils demonstrate maturity and show respect for others. They value their relationships with teache...rs and other adults, who know them well and keep them safe. Parents and pupils are overwhelmingly supportive of the school's work.

Leaders work effectively to help parents understand how they can support their children's learning. The early years provision is well led and prepares most to make a strong start to key stage 1. Children usually develop their knowledge, understanding and social skills well.

Significant improvements in the effectiveness of teaching, learning and assessment are ensuring that, overall, current key stage 2 pupils are making good progress. Teachers plan activities that enable pupils to make good progress across many subjects, particularly in mathematics. Most pupils achieve well by the end of key stage 1.

Teachers use questioning well to identify which pupils need more help, and which are ready to broaden or deepen their learning. Teachers encourage pupils to discuss and debate. This helps pupils to think more deeply.

Pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities are well supported. Typically, these pupils make good progress from their individual starting points as a result. Too often, older pupils do not spell or use punctuation and grammar accurately enough.

Too few pupils read a wide variety of books outside of school. Sometimes, pupils do not develop subject-specific skills in subjects other than English and mathematics as well as they might.
