Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a school that requires improvement In the past, leaders and governors have not been quick enough to address weaknesses in the school’s performance. They have not acted swiftly enough to improve teaching, learning and assessment and thereby the progress pupils make. Outcomes in reading, writing and mathematics have been below national averages since the last inspection. Disadvantaged pupils are not making the rapid progress they need to so as to catch up with other pupils. Middle leaders’ focus on improving teaching, learning and assessment is not sharp enough. Despite recent improvements secured in teaching, the quality of teaching, learning and assessment varies. In mathematics, pupils often complete work that is too easy. As a result, pupils are not achieving standards of which they are capable. In some classes, pupils are not given enough opportunities to practise and apply their writing skills in other subjects. Leaders have not ensured that the curriculum helps pupils understand enough about different cultures and beliefs. Occasionally, the work that pupils do is sometimes poorly presented and untidy. Too often, teachers are not helping pupils spell common everyday words correctly. The school has the following strengths The interim executive headteacher, ably supported by his senior leaders, have brought stability to the school following a period of turbulence. Signs of improvement are already showing in the quality of teaching and the progress pupils are making. Teaching in some classes, particularly in Year 6, is ensuring that pupils make strong progress. Improvements to the teaching of reading are beginning to have a positive effect on pupils’ progress. Pupils feel safe. They behave well around school and get on well together. Teaching assistants provide effective support for pupils.
