Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher has led the school skilfully since the previous inspection. She has built a talented staff team which shares her ambitions for pupils to achieve high standards.

In recent years, pupils' attainment in English and mathematics at the end of key stages 1 and 2 has been below the national average. Current pupils are making strong progress to reverse this trend. Leaders and teachers have successfully addressed the school's past weaknesses, particularly in mathematics.

They are held rigorously to account by an effective governing body. The quality of teaching and learning is good because teachers make effective use of their asses...sments of pupils' learning. They ensure that learning activities in English and mathematics build upon what pupils already know and can do.

Pupils appreciate their friendly, happy and well-resourced school. They say that they always feel safe in school. They like their teachers because they make lessons interesting.

Pupils' conduct is exemplary in the classroom and around the school. A group of pupils confidently told inspectors, 'We don't like school; actually, we love it.' Pupils show that they understand the school's values through their considerate relationships.

Positive attitudes towards learning are helping pupils to catch up where they have previously fallen behind. Parents and carers of children in the Reception class are pleased with how well their children learn. Typically, parents say that their children are 'achieving beyond their expectations'.

Children thoroughly enjoy the wide range of learning and play that the adults provide. Leaders use the pupil premium funding to help disadvantaged pupils to achieve at least as well as other pupils. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are supported effectively to make strong progress.

There are times when teaching does not meet the needs of all pupils. In a few year groups, learning tasks are not matched consistently enough to pupils' prior knowledge. Leaders have designed the curriculum to provide interesting learning activities across a broad range of subjects.

However, subjects other than English and mathematics do not fully support pupils to deepen their skills, knowledge and understanding.
