The overall performance of the school is acceptable and it has many good features. Standards have risen in all the core subjects since the last inspection. Children in the Kindergarten are provided with stimulating activities, resources and child-centred teaching which develops their basic skills well. All students have a positive attitude to their studies and stay focused on lesson tasks and activities. They are well behaved in lessons and around the school. Teaching has improved since the last inspection but a majority of teachers do not provide enough opportunities in lessons for students to demonstrate what they know, understand and can do. Students collaborate well together and are developing as self-directed learners. Opportunities to develop other learning skills are more limited. The curriculum is meets requirements and provides an appropriate foundation for students moving on to the next phase of their education. Students are well cared for in a safe and secure learning environment. Procedures and support for students with special educational needs (SEN) are developing effectively with the newly-appointed SEN teacher. Arrangements for gifted and talented students are less well developed. The principal and senior team provide calm and purposeful leadership with a clear vision and the drive to improve all aspects of provision. The school is now well supported by parents who appreciate the work of staff and the regular and comprehensive information they receive on their children’s academic and social development.
