Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school.

  • Standards in reading, writing and mathematics are above average by the time pupils leave at the end of Year 6.
  • Pupils learn well because teaching is good. Marking and feedback are effective and teachers have a good subject knowledge.
  • Disadvantaged pupils and those who are disabled and have special educational needs make similar good progress to others.
  • Leaders’ high expectations have led to recent improvements in pupils’ achievement.
  • Children have a good start to school and make good progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They are well prepared to start Year 1.
  • Behaviour is good. Pupils are caring, polite and friendly.
  • Pupils enjoy school. They feel safe and secure and well looked after. Attendance is above average.
  • Parents are very supportive of the school and pleased with the education their children receive.
  • Since the previous inspection, the acting headteacher, senior leaders and governors have been effective in maintaining good-quality teaching and achievement.
  • Governors are knowledgeable about the school’s work and have an accurate understanding of its strengths and weaknesses. Governors review their own effectiveness to ensure they can fully hold the school to account for its performance.

It is not yet an outstanding school because

  • There is not enough outstanding teaching. Not enough pupils make the rapid progress that they are capable of achieving.
  • On occasion, teaching does not fully engage pupils and so they become distracted and lose concentration.
