Headteacher Sarah Clayton

Chair Ian Keating

Inspection April 24 2014

Overall effectiveness Good

"Pupils’ achievement in reading, writing and mathematics is improving. Pupils make good progress from starting points which are often low and reach standards which are average by the end of Year 6."; "The new headteacher has been highly effective in raising the expectations of staff and pupils. She has inspired self-confidence and ambition in both."; "Governors and leaders at all levels work as a team and have been successful in improving the quality of teaching and raising standards."; "There is not enough outstanding teaching and a small amount requires improvement."
