 Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.


*  All groups of pupils achieve well. Attainment is, currently, above the latest national averages in both key stages.

*  Most pupils are, currently, making good progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

*  Pupils benefit from teaching that is usually good, with a growing amount that is outstanding.

*  Reading is taught very well. Pupils quickly grasp the skills they need and go on to become fluent readers with a love of books.



*  Pupils behave well and value their school. They have positive attitudes to learning and take good care of each other.

*  The headteacher and senior team provide very strong leadership. They promote high quality teaching, which results in pupils’ achievement being good and improving.

*  Governors are rigorous and efficient in conducting their responsibilities. They are focused exceptionally well on improving outcomes for all pupils.


It is not yet an outstanding school because


*  Not all pupils are able to make accelerated progress and attain the higher levels in all subjects.



*  Teaching is not generally outstanding. Some teaching does not demand enough of the pupils by challenging them to extend their learning and give of their best.
