Inspection January 22 2015

Overall effectiveness Requires improvement

"Achievement requires improvement because standards by the end of Key Stage 2 in 2014 declined and were below average in reading and mathematics."; "The gap between the achievement of disadvantaged and other pupils is too wide."; "Teachers’ expectations are not always high enough and so pupils do not make consistently good progress across the school."; "Not all teachers successfully implement the agreed whole-school approaches to teaching. As a result, pupils do not always learn as well as they should."; "The executive headteacher has injected a renewed determination in the school to provide the best possible learning and experiences for pupils. He provides inspirational and motivating leadership and has rapidly made significant changes to improve the school."
