- Overall effectiveness – Outstanding
- Effectiveness of Leadership and management – Outstanding

- Personal development, behaviour and welfare – Outstanding
- Outcomes for pupils – Outstanding
- Early Years provision – Outstanding
- Since the multi-academy trust (MAT) took over the school in 2016, stringent systems and processes have ensured pupils’ progress has improved.
- Trustees appointed the headteacher in September 2017. She has been steadfast in her determination to secure a safe environment that is conducive to learning.
- The headteacher has worked relentlessly to ensure that parents and carers value the education of their children and help them to make better progress in school.
- Teachers are well trained and provide pupils with consistently strong learning experiences, especially in English and mathematics.
- Leaders spend pupil premium funding wisely and, as a result, disadvantaged pupils are making at least the same progress as other pupils nationally in the end of key stage 2 tests.
- Leaders and staff work vigilantly and successfully to safeguard the many vulnerable children in the catchment.
- Pupils, including disadvantaged pupils, attend school regularly and are keen to engage in their learning. Leaders challenge any nonattendance diligently.
- Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make strong progress from their starting points because teachers understand their needs and plan for them.
- Pupils are aware of the fundamental British values from a young age. They understand the importance of respect and tolerance and exhibit these features in their daily routines.
- Pupils behave well throughout the day. For the pupils who have complex needs that make their behaviour more erratic, there are skilful adults to support them in their learning.
- Children in Reception are making excellent progress, especially in their social and emotional development, so that they are ready to learn in Year 1.
- The curriculum is broad. However, because of pupils’ low starting points, there has been a greater focus on English and mathematics.
- There are very few pupils who enter school with a high level of ability. However, teachers are successfully helping these pupils, and others, to develop work of a higher standard.
