The following strengths were identified in the report:

  • Since the appointment of the headteacher in 2015 and the increased involvement of the executive principal, improvement has accelerated.
  • It is clear that where school leaders have identified an area of weakness, they are relentless in their drive to secure improvement.
  • Senior and middle leaders, the executive principal and the trust, have complementary skills and expertise.
  • Leaders are robust in tackling weaker teaching. The support to improve the practice of teachers has borne fruit and is now resulting in pupils making better progress.
  • The provision for pupils who are very new to speaking English is excellent. These pupils get a very positive start to school life and the rapid progress they make means that they can quickly access learning across subjects.
  • Teaching in upper key stage 2 is carefully matched to the needs of pupils of all abilities and provides appropriate challenge. As a result, pupils make good gains in their learning.
  • Work to engage pupils in developing their knowledge and skills through a broader curriculum has got off to a good start.
  • Investigative work in science is strong.
