This is a good school Pupils' achievement in mathematics has improved since the last inspection. Leaders have ensured that teaching matches pupils' needs.

Pupils now achieve well and are enthusiastic about mathematics. Leaders monitor teaching closely. As a result, teachers have high expectations of what pupils can achieve.

This ensures that most pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, make strong progress in writing. Leaders have improved the teaching of reading. Pupils use their phonics skills well to decode words.

They are confident and enthusiastic readers. In the early years, teachers make sure that children develop the skills they need to succee...d in Year 1. Leaders ensure that a broad and balanced curriculum is in place.

Pupils have access to a wide range of engaging learning experiences that capture their interest. However, this is not yet consistent across all subjects. Pupils behave well around the school.

They are polite and work diligently in most lessons. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. A range of activities help pupils to reflect on their values.

The school uses its links with local churches to good effect. Leaders have created an environment where everyone feels included. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are supported effectively and achieve well as a result.

Pupils are proud of the fact that everyone is welcome in their school. Governors have developed their work and hold leaders stringently to account. They have developed a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the school.

Most parents, carers and staff are happy with the work of the school. However, there is a minority who feel that relationships and communication are not as good as they could be.
