Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

The headteacher, staff and governors have been successful in bringing about improvements in teaching and learning since the previous inspection. Pupils' good behaviour, their positive attitudes to learning and the way they are kept safe together make a real contribution to the life of this happy school. Teaching is consistently good and sometimes outstanding.

Teachers plan lessons that interest pupils and keep them keen to learn. Children get off to a good start in the Early Years and are ready for Year 1 when they leave Reception Good progress continues throughout the school, especially in Key Stage 2. By the end of Year 6 pupils reach ...standards that are above average in English and mathematics.

Pupils' progress is particularly strong in reading, grammar and mathematics. Governance of the school is strong and effective. Governors share the same high expectations as the staff and are ambitious for the school to improve further.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good, because the curriculum gives them ample opportunities to experience art, music and other cultural aspects of life in Britain today. They are encouraged to take on responsibilities and as a result, they grow into capable and confident young people. It is not yet an outstanding school because : In Key Stage 1 planning does not ensure that learning from one year is not repeated in the next and so pupils do not move on to new learning quickly enough.

In some literacy lessons teachers do not insist that pupils make the improvements to their work that they suggest when marking, nor do pupils have the time to make these improvements. As a result, the rate of progress in writing is not as rapid as it is in other subjects.
