Ofsted, May 2017:
The school has the following strengths:

* Provision in the early years is effective. Leaders ensure that children get off to a good start in all that they do and are well prepared for Year 1.

* The leadership and teaching of phonics is effective. Most pupils reach the required standard by the end of Year 1.

* As a result of effective teaching and leadership, pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities achieve well.

* Parents, carers and staff hold the school in high regard. They are supportive of the recently appointed headteacher and other school leaders.

* Most pupils behave well. They show respect and tolerance for staff and one another. Pupils are happy and safe because of the support they receive from adults.
