Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Under the skilled and tenacious leadership of the headteacher, the whole school community has pulled together to try to provide the best possible opportunities and experiences for all pupils. Leaders are determined to eradicate anything that is second best. Leaders' effective evaluation ensures that they know the school inside out.

As a result, school development planning is incisive, detailed and actions are evaluated regularly. Governors provide effective challenge and high-quality support for the school. They too are committed to providing the best possible experiences and resources for pupils such as seen in the recent investment in the early ...years outdoor environment.

This resource is yet to be used to its full potential by teachers. Children in the early years make good progress. An above-average proportion of children reach a good level of development by the time they leave the Reception class.

They are well prepared to start Year 1. Pupils' personal development and welfare are outstanding. Their behaviour is exemplary, rooted in the respect and care they have for each other.

Pupils listen to each other attentively, display excellent manners and clearly love being at school. Over time, the attainment of pupils in key stages 1 and 2 has been above average, and current pupils are making good progress from their individual starting points. In the last two years, pupils have made weaker progress across key stage 2 in reading and mathematics.

Leaders' continuing actions to improve teaching even further are bearing fruit. As a result of consistently good teaching, pupils are learning quickly. Teachers and teaching assistants alike are skilled at supporting pupils' learning.

Ongoing strategies to further improve teaching are not yet consistently seen in every year group. Teachers generally match work accurately to pupils' varying abilities. However, further work is needed to develop pupils' reasoning skills in mathematics.

The leadership of the well-planned curriculum ensures that pupils are enthusiastic and engaged in their learning. Subject-specific skills are effectively planned and taught.
