Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. Teaching is good and sometimes outstanding. Staff have high expectations of what pupils can achieve. Pupils respond well, make good progress and have outstanding attitudes to learning. Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs make particularly good progress. Teachers plan interesting and practical lessons for the wide ability range in each class. All groups of pupils are fully involved when working on their own or in small groups. Pupils are given an exciting range of opportunities to apply their mathematical skills to challenging problem-solving activities. All staff have excellent relationships with their pupils. This spurs pupils on to do well. Teachers mark work thoroughly and the next steps in learning are made clear. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary in lessons and around the school. They enjoy school and feel extremely safe. They are happy, secure and ready to learn. As a result, pupils’ attendance is above average. Mutual respect, high levels of courtesy and consideration lead to purposeful and enjoyable learning. The school is well led. The impact of leadership and management at all levels is positive in bringing about improvements in teaching and pupils’ attainment and progress. All teaching staff hold responsibilities for subjects. They work closely as a team, rigorously checking teaching and learning. This means that teaching and pupils’ progress is consistently good or better. Governors have an in-depth understanding of the school’s provision and outcomes. They offer support and challenge to leaders and hold them to account. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils’ progress in writing is not as good as in mathematics. This is because pupils are not expected, or given enough encouragement, to apply their skills to create extended and descriptive accounts across a range of subjects. The level of work set by the teachers does not always offer enough challenge, especially for the more-able pupils, to bring about outstanding levels of achievement.
