Overall Effectiveness - Good

  • Leaders have brought about good improvement to the school's work since converting to an academy. Teaching and learning are managed well resulting in a rise in standards at the end of Year 6 compared to 2013.
  • Provision in the Early Years, where there is storng leadership, has also improved.
  • Governors know the quality of the school's work well. They provide good challenge and support.
  • Pupils enjoy their learning. Their good behaviour and positive attitudes contribute well to their good achievement. Pupils feel safe and well cared for.
  • The quality of teaching is good. Teachers provide well for their pupils' differing abilities. Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs are supported particularly well. Teaching assistants work skilfully alongside class teachers and contribute well to pupils' learning.
  • Pupils achieve well from starting points on entering Nursery that are significantly below what is typical for their age. They make good progress to reach average standards by the end of Year 6 in reading, writing and mathematics.
