Summary of key findings for parents and pupils:
This is a good school.
  • Teaching is good because lessons are well planned to deepen and extend pupils’ knowledge and skills.
  • From average starting points, pupils make good progress across the school to reach levels above those expected nationally at the end of Year 6.
  • A wide range of strategies used by teachers to support disabled pupils or those with special educational needs ensures they make good and sometimes outstanding progress.
  • Pupils’ behaviour is good; they have positive attitudes to learning.
  • In lessons, pupils are unfailingly courteous and respectful to each other. They feel safe in school.
  • The headteacher, senior leaders and the governing body provide focused and clear leadership.
