Summary of key findings for parents and pupils:
This is a good school.
Pupils make rapid progress in all year groups. Lessons are interesting and capture pupils’ imagination, so they enjoy their learning.
Teaching is typically at least good and sometimes outstanding. Pupils are always required to think carefully about their learning.
Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. They love coming to school and are confident that they are safe in school. Their attitudes to learning are exemplary.
The school promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development outstandingly well.
Leaders and managers have focused sharply and effectively on improving teaching and learning.
Teachers’ marking and feedback are consistently good so pupils know exactly how to improve their work.
The specialist resource base is outstanding. Teaching for autistic pupils is excellent and they make outstanding progress.
Governors work closely with the school’s leaders, supporting and challenging them well. Additional funds are used wisely to help individual pupils.
It is not yet an outstanding school because
Pupils have few opportunities to use the skills they learn in mathematics in other subjects.
The extra help given to pupils supported by the pupil premium has not yet had sufficient impact on their attainment levels.
The amount of outstanding teaching is increasing, but there is not yet enough to support exceptional progress.
