Inspectors have praised teachers for improving since the school was last visited in 2013, and said: “Pupils achieve particularly well in reading, writing, and mathematics. They make good progress across a range of subjects because of the good quality teaching they receive.”

To improve further, teachers should adapt lessons quicker, in response to what pupils can do, because currently ‘at times learning slows’, Ofsted’s lead inspector Tanya Hughes said in her report recently.

Approaches to teaching that have proven effective elsewhere should also be shared, she said, while pupils should be ‘given further opportunities to practice and apply their writing skills in subjects other than English.’

Governors were described as ‘ambitious’, nursery and reception classes are ‘led well’, and youngsters’ behaviour is ‘exemplary’.

“Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social, and cultural development is of high quality,” Ms Hughes added.
