Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher has a clear understanding of the school's strengths and areas for further development. Following disappointing key stage 2 results in 2018, she took assertive and timely action to develop middle leadership and improve the quality of teaching throughout the school. These actions are paying dividends.

Governors skilfully challenge and support senior leaders. Members of the local governing body, together with the trust's chief executive officer (CEO) and the chair of the trust's board, have a deep knowledge of the school and its community. Expert leadership of English and mathematics is having a significant impact on pupils' learning....

Current assessments show that all pupils are making improved progress. Pupils model the school's values to a high standard. Everyone is included and valued.

A range of effective strategies enhances pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development to ensure that they are well prepared for life in modern Britain. Outcomes for all pupils are improving. The proportion of pupils achieving expected or higher standards at key stage 2 are improving.

Disadvantaged pupils are now making stronger progress. So too are those pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). The progress of the most able pupils is improving.

However, at times, they are not moved on to challenging work quickly enough. The provision for pupils with SEND is improving. Consequently, these pupils' diverse needs are increasingly well met.

However, the special educational needs coordinator (SENCo) is not yet fully involved in the monitoring of special needs teaching across the school. The curriculum is broad and balanced. Pupils enjoy a wide range of activities and experiences.

However, these are not always sequenced effectively to build on pupils' skills and knowledge in all curriculum areas. The early years setting is good. Children make good progress from their starting points and are ready to achieve well when they start Year 1.
