Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Senior leaders have successfully created a positive culture of care and respect. The school is a happy and welcoming place to learn. The carefully planned curriculum successfully stimulates pupils' learning across a broad range of subjects.

As a result, pupils are inquisitive and work hard. Leaders are taking decisive action to improve the quality of teaching and assessment in mathematics following the disappointing dip in pupils' progress and outcomes in 2018. Leaders provide teachers with helpful support and guidance to improve their teaching and strengthen their subject knowledge.

As a result, the quality of teaching and learning is im...proving. Most pupils achieve good outcomes in reading and writing by the end of key stage 2. Adept teaching enables pupils to make good progress from their starting points in these subjects.

Phonics is taught well. In 2018, the proportion of pupils achieving the expected standard in the national phonics screening check was well above the national average. Safeguarding is effective.

Pupils' well-being is at the core of the school's work. The most able pupils achieve well in reading, writing and mathematics in key stage 1, and also in reading in key stage 2. However, in 2018, by the end of Year 6, the proportions of the most able pupils achieving the higher standards in writing and mathematics were below the national averages.

In the early years, children get a happy and positive start to their education. Children achieve good outcomes because teaching meets their needs. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding.

Their conduct in and around the school is exemplary. Pupils show great respect for each other and for staff. The school's strong Christian values provide a firm foundation for the school's excellent provision for pupils' personal development and welfare.

Pupils flourish because they are well cared for. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make good progress from their starting points because support is well matched to their needs. Leaders do not incisively evaluate the impact of their actions in securing improvement, particularly for disadvantaged pupils.
