Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Following a period of turbulence at the school, the two co-headteachers have secured strong teaching and learning leading to improved outcomes for pupils in every key stage. Leaders' and governors' high expectations and aspirations for the academic, social and emotional success of pupils are shared by every member of staff.

Leaders have addressed weaknesses in the teaching and learning of reading, writing and mathematics. As a result, current pupils make much stronger progress than in previous years. Governors bring a breadth of expertise to their roles which enables them to hold leaders sharply to account.

Children in Reception achieve w...ell, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics. Children thrive in the stimulating early years learning environment. Consequently, children are well prepared for study in Year 1.

From their differing starting points, pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, make strong progress in many areas of the curriculum. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress in most areas of the curriculum. Through a well-structured combination of personalised support and whole-class teaching, these pupils thrive academically and socially.

Safeguarding arrangements at the school are fit for purpose. Pupils feel safe and are well cared for by adults. Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school.

They are respectful, welcoming and kind, both towards each other and to adults. The school makes a strong contribution to pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils learn to respect the views of others.

Pupils are highly sensitive to the different needs of other pupils, which prepares them well for life in modern Britain. Pupils develop strong skills, knowledge and understanding of music in every key stage. Pupils have many opportunities to experiment with music, enabling them to compose their own interpretations.

Although the teaching of reading, writing, mathematics and music is strong, history and science are not as strong. The most able pupils, including the most able disadvantaged pupils, do not consistently extend their understanding, knowledge and skills in reading, writing and mathematics at key stage 1 and key stage 2.
