Key Findings

Children enter school with skills that are well below what is typical for their age. However, they get a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They settle quickly due to a caring and supportive approach; this ensures they make outstanding progress in their personal development.

Pupils make good and improving progress across Key Stage 1 to reach standards that are below average but rapidly improving. Pupils make good and sometimes outstanding progress across Key Stage 2 to reach standards that are broadly average and improving by the time they leave the school.

Teaching is good and sometimes outstanding. Teachers are effective at engaging pupils in learning. Questioning is used well in all lessons to develop pupils’ understanding and ensure they make at least good progress. Teaching assistants provide invaluable support, which meets a range of pupils’ needs well, both in and out of lessons.

Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary at all times. They have an excellent understanding of how to stay safe. Relationships are very good. Pupils’ personal development ensures they are keen and ready to learn.

The school’s curriculum significantly enriches pupils’ lives and raises their aspirations. A myriad of activities during and after school inspires pupils to learn.

The inspirational leadership of the headteacher, working in partnership with a very skilful deputy headteacher and committed staff, ensures that the school continues to improve. They have identified areas for improvement in teaching and raising standards and are acting upon these effectively.

Governors challenge the school to improve further and use the pupil premium funding effectively to raise standards. They know their school well and understand its strengths and areas for development.
