Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Senior leaders have set high expectations of pupils and staff.

They have taken effective action to secure significant improvements across the school. The Park Federation Academy Trust provides a good balance of carefully targeted support and robust challenge for school leaders. Governors know the school very well.

They routinely monitor the impact of leaders' initiatives and the spending of additional funding on outcomes for pupils. Leaders have developed a curriculum that ignites pupils' interest and enables them to make good progress. There is some variability in the effectiveness of subject leadership.

Some subjects have been ...developed carefully and they are monitored and evaluated rigorously. The progression of skills and knowledge in some other subjects, however, are less well developed. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is good.

Teachers have strong subject knowledge. They give clear explanations of concepts and model skills well. Teaching focuses sharply on the development of pupils' language.

Over time, pupils become confident to use increasingly interesting and sophisticated vocabulary when articulating their learning and in their writing. As a result of strong teaching, pupils make good progress across the curriculum. They make particularly strong progress in writing and mathematics, using and applying their skills in a range of subjects.

The leadership of special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) is particularly strong. Effective interventions and support ensure that these pupils make strong progress from their starting points, including those pupils attending the specially resourced provision. Pupils have very positive attitudes to learning.

They work with high levels of concentration and enthusiasm. Pupils take great pride in the presentation of their work. Leaders have established a wide range of strategies and initiatives to support pupils' personal development and welfare.

Pupils value the support they receive from adults in school. They feel safe and enjoy coming to school. Pupils' behaviour and conduct during lessons, breaktimes and lunchtimes are good.

Pupils are friendly and welcoming. Leaders have developed a strong culture of safeguarding throughout the school. This ensures that pupils' welfare remains paramount and they are kept safe from harm.
