Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Leadership and management are outstanding. The headteacher provides exceptionally clear leadership and enjoys the wholehearted support of parents and staff. Senior leaders and governors have secured improvements in the quality of teaching, pupils’ attendance and in their attitudes to learning. As a result, their levels of achievement and personal development are rising. The assistant headteacher has improved provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage to its current outstanding level through inspirational leadership. Governors know the school well and constantly challenge the headteacher to maintain the pace of school improvement. Teaching is consistently good. Lessons are interesting and steadily build on pupils’ knowledge, understanding and skills. Pupils make good progress to achieve expected standards in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 2. Pupils feel very safe and behave exceptionally well. They are happy in school and extremely keen to learn and are therefore very well prepared for the next stage of their education. Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain. Very good provision for their personal development inculcates a strong sense of the equal worth of each individual, regardless of race, religion, background or disability. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Lessons do not provide enough opportunities for pupils to consolidate and apply mathematical skills as they learn them. The curriculum does not provide a wide enough range of opportunities for pupils to express themselves creatively.
