Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

  • This is a good school
  • Senior leaders and governors, ably supported by the local authority and the diocese, have made significant improvements to the quality of teaching and pupils’ outcomes since the previous inspection.
  • Outcomes are now good. Pupils make above average progress from their starting points, especially in key stage 2.
  • The proportion of pupils who reached the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics in Year 6 in 2017 was above average. However, at the end of key stage 1, too few pupils from average starting points reached greater depth in their learning.
  • Leaders and governors have made sure that pupils learn well across the curriculum. Teaching staff now have secure subject knowledge and specialist teaching has enhanced subjects such as art and music. However, in history and geography, pupils with low starting points find some work too difficult.
  • Pupils conduct themselves well. They are courteous and caring and focus well in lessons.
  • Safeguarding is effective. Pupils feel safe in school and appreciate the many ways in which the school helps them to learn how to stay safe.
  • The senior leadership team is highly effective. There is also strong leadership of some subjects, including English, mathematics science and physical education, which is contributing to improved provision and standards. However, a few subjects remain without the leadership needed to make similar improvements.
  • Most of the small sample of parents and carers who spoke with or wrote to the inspector were very positive about the school and the recent changes. However, leaders are aware that a few parents still have concerns about aspects of the school’s work.
  • Children get a good start to their school life in the early years. They make good progress, so most are well prepared for Year 1.
