Overall effectiveness Requires improvement

"The quality of teaching is not yet consistently good in all classes."; "Teaching is better in the core subjects of reading and mathematics than in foundation subjects such as physical education."; "Progress is uneven across the school and pupils do not make fast enough progress in writing."; "Speaking and listening skills are not taught systematically."; "Strong leadership by the executive headteacher and head of school is ensuring that the school is improving rapidly.'; "Standards are rising. Well-targeted support and consistently good teaching enabled pupils in Year 6 to make significant progress last year."
