Overall effectiveness Good

"Teaching is almost always good, and occasionally outstanding, because teachers are knowledgeable and give pupils interesting work to do."; "Pupils are very keen to learn and make good progress to reach high standards of attainment, particularly in reading and mathematics."; "Teaching of specialist subjects, including music and French, is often outstanding because teachers are highly enthusiastic about what they are teaching."; "Pupils’ attendance is much higher than the average figures for primary schools."
