Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher and other leaders, including governors, are highly ambitious and have a clear vision for the school. Their leadership has secured improvements since the previous inspection. Leaders and managers have worked effectively to improve the quality of teaching, learning and assessment. Governors consistently challenge the school and hold senior leaders to account by measuring the impact of their actions. They know the school very well. In the early years, children receive good teaching and make a good start to their school lives. All staff and governors are well trained and fully committed to keeping pupils safe. Pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare are good. Pupils are polite and courteous to each other and to adults and have positive attitudes to learning. Highly skilled teaching assistants use their knowledge well to lead many effective intervention activities. Teachers plan learning activities that enable the vast majority of pupils to make rapid progress. However, expectations of the most able and the most able disadvantaged pupils are not high enough throughout the school. Pupils show a good understanding of British values. They are well prepared for the next stage of their education.
