“The vast majority of parents stated, their children feel safe, happy and well looked after at school. The parents who spoke to inspectors during this inspection were confident that the school does all that it can to ensure that pupils are safe and secure”.

“Pupils behaviour is good. Pupils work hard in lessons and develop very good attitudes to learning. they listen carefully to their teachers, work well with each other and try their best.”

“The proportion of pupils attaining the expected standard in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of key stage 2, was well above the national average between 2016 and 2018. The proportion attaining the higher standard was also above average.”

The teaching of phonics is a strength of the school”.

“Teachers provide regular opportunities for pupils to practise their calculation skills. They also challenge pupils to apply their knowledge and skills to investigate and solve problems. Pupils are making good progress.”

“Pupils learn well in subjects across the wider curriculum. Teaching is effective. The curriculum is enriched by a wide range of extra-curricular activities, especially in sport.”
