Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school This school has improved. Since the previous inspection, leaders, governors and the trust have worked together to improve teaching, the curriculum and pupils' behaviour.

Now, the school is a calm, orderly place where pupils work hard and make good progress. Academic standards coming up through the school are much higher than they used to be. At the end of key stage 1, standards in reading, writing and mathematics are in line with national figures and pupils are ready for their work in key stage 2.

In key stage 2, the standard of current pupils' work is also on the up. The majority of pupils are working at age-related expectations. They en...joy feelings of success across the curriculum, although attention to spelling could be better.

Good leadership has won the trust of parents, united the staff team and raised expectations. The executive headteacher provides strong leadership and has developed the leadership skills of others. There is now potential to strengthen the impact of other leaders' work across the school.

The Nursery and Reception classes give children a great start to school. Well-organised phonics teaching helps children on their way with reading and writing. The school's rules are fair, and most pupils behave well.

Any rough or rude behaviour on the playground is dealt with properly by staff. In class, pupils are usually attentive and respectful. The teaching of reading and writing is more organised and consistent than the teaching of mathematics.

In mathematics, teaching and resources are better in some classes than in others. In a few cases, staff give a lot of instructions that confuse pupils or limit what they can do. Systems for keeping pupils safe work well.

Staff act quickly when they have a concern about a pupil's welfare. A small number of pupils miss too much school without good reason and fall behind in their learning. Parents express positive views about the school.

They have many opportunities to find out about school life and classroom learning. In some
