Teaching is now good and pupils' outcomes are improving. Pupils thrive in the happy and motivating atmosphere that is provided by the school. They behave well, feel safe and show resilience and confidence in their learning.

The curriculum is rich and varied. Pupils enjoy exciting activities in lessons, captivating experiences in the forest school and enriching excursions. Such experiences broaden pupils' understanding of the world.

Leaders have secured improvements in teaching through high-quality training and ensuring a consistent approach to teaching and assessment. Pupils are developing fluency in mathematical knowledge and apply it successfully in mathematics lessons.

They have limited opportunities to apply their mathematical and reasoning skills in other subjects, however..Good teaching and accurate assessment support pupils who are currently in school to make good progress in all year groups.

Standards in the early years and key stage 1 have risen steadily over the last three years, providing pupils with strong foundations for further learning. Standards in pupils' work in the current Year 6 class are higher than they have been in previous years in reading and mathematics. Overall progress in writing is good but pupils' spelling, grammar and punctuation are still below the standards expected at key stage 2.

Pupils' skills are not built on effectively so gaps in their learning are not fully closed.

Governors are knowledgeable and provide effective support and challenge to leaders. They are ambitious for pupils and focused on ensuring that pupils' outcomes continue to rise. There is good capacity in the school to secure further improvement.
