It is not yet outstanding because although progress in writing and mathematics has accelerated, careless spelling and presentation of pupils’ written work sometimes limit attainment. Pupils are not always confident to apply mathematical skills in different contexts. Although teaching is good, it does not always challenge all pupils to reach levels above those expected for their age.”
