Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school Leaders have an accurate picture of the school’s strengths and weaknesses. They have taken swift and effective action to improve teaching and learning so that the quality of teaching is at least good, and outcomes are improving. Leaders are developing a rich curriculum with a broad range of experiences. Pupils deepen their knowledge, skills and understanding well in a range of subjects across the curriculum. Following a decline in standards, current leaders now hold teachers to account more rigorously for the progress that pupils make. Sometimes, some teachers do not have consistently high enough expectations of pupils. Senior leaders are developing the roles of middle leaders so that they have a strategic overview of school improvement. Middle leaders are now beginning to contribute effectively to school improvement. Generally, pupils apply their skills in reading, writing and mathematics well. However, pupils have not fully developed their ability to reason effectively in mathematics. Leaders support pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well. Pupils have positive attitudes, and work hard and behave well. In early years, children make good progress. On occasion, children are not challenged sufficiently to apply their skills in reading, writing and mathematics in independent activities. Governors are committed to the school and to further improving standards. Currently, not all governors are fully involved in monitoring and evaluating the work of the school rigorously enough. Safeguarding is a strength of the school. Leaders are aware of local issues and take positive action to address them.
