Music and sport are given a high priority. Pupils develop a good sense of fairness and respect for others. Most parents said the school has improved in most aspects and that teachers were easy to talk to and helpful.

It is not yet an outstanding school because : Teachers do not always check quickly enough how well pupils are coping, resulting in a few pupils persisting with unsuitable tasks for too long. Pupils do not have enough opportunities to practise and develop their skills in mathematical reasoning. Parents are not receiving important information about events and changes in the school day quickly enough.

Information about this school

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (extra government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or children who are looked after by the local authority) is below average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is around the national average. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics.
