Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The very large majority of pupils achieves well. Good proportions of pupils make expected progress and more than expected progress and these are increasing. This is the result of consistently good teaching and the high expectations staff have that every pupil, whatever their circumstances, reaches their potential. The school is effective in ensuring that pupils are well-prepared for the next stage of education. Teaching is consistently good from Nursery Year through to Year 6. A key strength of teaching is in its thorough planning of lessons. Mixed year groups in each classroom and the wide range of ability are catered for effectively. Assessment of pupils’ progress is thorough and teachers know pupils’ attainment levels in reading, writing and mathematics. Teachers are also clear on what pupils need to achieve next and over time. Pupils enjoy school because their work is interesting and relevant to their experiences. They appreciate their learning and honour the school’s values. Behaviour is good and pupils feel safe, respect staff and each other. Leaders and governors have raised the school’s expectations and have made improvements which have strengthened teaching and raised pupils’ achievement. Both the ambition for the school and the drive for improvement are strong. Further improvement benefits from an effective leadership team and a united staff that sustain the school’s improvement. It is not yet an outstanding school because : The most-able pupils do not always reach their full potential in reading, writing and mathematics. Teachers do not always ensure that all pupils become adept at working in pairs and teams. Less-able pupils do not consistently have opportunities to take charge of their own learning. Pupils have few opportunities to gain first-hand experience of different cultures in Britain.
