Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher has established a positive culture of high expectations.

She is a strong and inspirational leader and has created an effective leadership team. Leaders are accurate in their evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the school. They use this information to take the correct action to drive further improvement.

Current pupils from the early years to Year 6, including disadvantaged pupils and those pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), are achieving well. Pupils behave well because of the care provided by adults. Leaders monitor pupils' progress in reading, writing and mathematics routinely, so... that they can quickly support those pupils who need to catch up.

This is leading to pupils making good progress and attaining at least what is expected of pupils of the same age. Pupils experience an enriching and broad and balanced curriculum. Pupils enjoy the subjects they are taught and are motivated to learn well.

Pupils are safe. Staff care for the pupils. Adults respond well to pupils' welfare needs and ensure that pupils are well looked after.

Safeguarding is effective. Teachers' good subject knowledge and questioning skills enable pupils to make good progress. Teaching assistants support and promote pupils' learning effectively.

In 2018, the proportion of key stage 2 pupils who achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics combined was in line with the national average. Not all assessment information is used effectively by teachers to set challenging targets, particularly for the most able pupils. Too little attention is given to some aspects of the mathematics curriculum, such as the development of pupils' reasoning skills.

Some middle leaders are not rigorous or precise enough in carrying out their responsibilities. They are not effective at measuring the impact that they are having on pupils' outcomes. Governors ask leaders challenging questions and know the school well.

The vast majority of parents and carers are extremely supportive of the school, its leaders and the provision. They feel that their children are happy and well taught.
