Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders and governors have worked relentlessly to successfully improve standards since the previous inspection.

They have established a culture of high expectations. Their actions are ensuring that children make good progress in English and mathematics. Governors challenge and support leaders effectively.

They know the school well and check that leaders' actions are improving the quality of teaching and learning. Teachers are extremely proud to work at the school. They are positive about the support that they have received to improve their skills in the teaching of English and mathematics.

Teachers ask probing questions to check ...pupils' understanding and develop pupils' reasoning skills. Teachers use their subject knowledge to develop pupils' knowledge and understanding. However, sometimes teachers do not provide tasks that challenge the most able pupils sufficiently.

Leaders and governors recognise the curriculum in subjects other than English and mathematics is less well developed. This means that pupils cannot develop a range of subject-specific knowledge and skills. Leaders acknowledge that more work is needed to improve the wider curriculum.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a strength of the school. Through lessons and assemblies, pupils talk about how they can show respect for one another. Pupils behave extremely well in lessons and around the school.

Their behaviour reflects the school's values of respect, excellence, awareness, courage and honesty (REACH). Disadvantaged pupils and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are making better progress than their peers. This is because leaders ensure that these pupils receive the quality of teaching and support that meets their needs.

Leaders provide a range of learning experiences for children in the early years that ensure that children make good progress from their starting points. However, activities in the outdoor area do not always extend children's learning well enough.
