Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The school has improved significantly since the last inspection. It is now good in all areas. Senior and middle leaders are effective in their roles.

There is strong capacity to ensure sustained improvement. Teachers have good subject knowledge. They use questions effectively to encourage pupils to reflect on, and explain, their learning.

Pupils have frequent opportunities to edit and improve their work. As a result, they are becoming increasingly resilient, independent learners. The high standard of work in pupils' English, phonics and mathematics books reflects their positive attitudes to learning.

However, work in topic books ...shows that pupils do not consistently apply their skills across a wide range of subjects. Leadership and teaching in the early years are strong. Children make good progress and are well prepared for the transition to Year 1.

Leaders and staff have ensured that behaviour has improved significantly since the last inspection. Pupils' conduct around school and in lessons is calm and orderly. Leaders and staff promote pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development effectively, through the well-designed curriculum.

This is a strength of the school's provision. Attainment at the expected standard has improved considerably in reading, writing and mathematics. This applies equally to disadvantaged pupils.

The proportion of pupils who attain at greater depth has been consistently below average. No disadvantaged pupil attained at greater depth in reading or mathematics in 2018. The most able pupils are not consistently given work that is sufficiently challenging.

Consequently, this sometimes limits their learning and progress.
