Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils make good progress through the school to reach above-average standards in their work by the time they leave in Year 6.

Teaching is good and pupils are given a clear understanding of how to improve their work, especially in writing. The headteacher and deputy headteacher give a clear steer to school improvement and in raising pupils' achievement. They have provided additional guidance and training for teachers that have successfully improved the quality of teaching through the school.

The governors have made good progress in using the information they are given about the school's performance to challenge the staff and support impro...vement. Pupils enjoy school and want to do well. They attend very regularly.

They behave well in lessons and around the school. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils' progress in mathematics, although good overall, is not yet as strong as that in reading and writing. Teaching is good but teachers' subject knowledge in mathematics and their use of marking to help pupils understand how to improve are not as effective as they are in English.

Children make good progress in the Reception classes but there is a lack of clarity about their levels of skill and knowledge when they start school and about how much they achieve. This limits teachers' understanding of how well children are progressing.
