Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Pupils achieve well. They make good progress in each year group as they move through the school. Teaching is good, with some that is outstanding. Pupils enjoy the challenging tasks they are given. The teaching of reading is particularly good throughout the school. Pupils are fluent readers by the time they leave. Pupils feel very safe at school. Bullying and other forms of bad behaviour are extremely rare. Good leadership from the headteacher and governing body is driving the school forward. Leaders have ensured that teaching and achievement are good despite staffing changes. The school’s systems for checking and improving the quality of teaching are effective. It is not yet an outstanding school because : There are not enough outstanding lessons for pupils to make consistently rapid progress. The best practice is not shared enough between teachers to improve this. Teachers’ use of targets is not precise enough when checking on pupils’ learning. Marking does not consistently show pupils how to improve their work.
