Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Most pupils currently in the school make good progress across all subjects of the curriculum.

After disappointing Year 6 results in 2017 and Year 2 results in 2018, senior leaders identified weaknesses and, alongside governors, took effective action to improve teaching and assessment. Developments in the teaching of mathematics have resulted in pupils, including the most able, making much better progress than in recent years. The quality of pupils' writing is improving.

However, the teaching of writing does not stretch the most able. Pupils of all abilities make too many mistakes in basic spelling and punctuation. Phase and subject leader...s have played a significant role in improvements.

They now have more responsibility for monitoring teaching and progress. Teachers use good subject knowledge to plan dynamic and interesting lessons which motivate pupils to learn. Pupils behave well in lessons and at social times.

They are courteous, considerate and polite. Teachers have taught them not to be afraid to make mistakes but to learn from them. Most pupils attend school regularly.

Early years staff use their considerable experience to make sure that children settle in well and enjoy school. Most children make good progress across most areas of learning. Nevertheless, too few of the most able children reach levels which are above average.

Leaders collect a large amount of performance information to set progress and attainment targets for individuals. However, they do not analyse this information well enough to identify weaknesses in the performance of vulnerable groups. Staff provide a very high level of pastoral care and support for pupils and their families, especially at difficult times in their lives.

Leaders have introduced a new curriculum, which pupils enjoy. It develops numeracy and literacy while providing sufficient opportunities for the teaching of specific skills in subjects such as science, geography and art. The school provides very good opportunities for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Teachers plan activities which enable pupils to collaborate successfully. They give older pupils significant responsibilities.
