Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The school has an effective team where leaders, staff and governors work together well and are committed to continuing to improve the school.

Leaders are strong in tackling any underperformance of staff. They support and challenge staff appropriately. Leaders use professional development effectively to develop teachers' skills so that the quality of teaching and learning continues to improve rapidly.

Children in the early years get off to a good start to school. Adults ensure that children have interesting opportunities to learn independently, together and with older pupils in their mixed-aged class. Attendance is good because pupils enjoy coming to school.

Leaders quickly address any absences with parents. Parental support for the school is high. Parents and carers have confidence in leaders and appreciate the work all staff do to help their children in school.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted effectively. As a result, pupils develop their academic and personal skills well. Pupils leave the school well prepared for future learning and life in modern Britain.

Teaching is not consistently to the same high standard in all classes. Some pupils in key stage 1 are not making as much progress as they are capable of making, particularly in writing. The large majority of pupils behave well in lessons and around the school.

However, where teaching is less effective, pupils do not focus on their learning as much as they should and learning time is lost. A broad curriculum is in place and is being reviewed. Current curriculum plans do not ensure that pupils develop their skills, knowledge and understanding progressively in subjects such as history and science.
