Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Attainment is above average by the end of Year 6 and pupils' progress in reading, writing and mathematics is outstanding given their starting points. Pupils learn very effectively. High expectations, stimulating activities, effective questioning and excellent relationships are hallmarks of the outstanding teaching.

Reading provision is exceptional. Whole-school focused reading four times a week helps to develop pupils' reading skills extremely well and a love of reading is fostered. Parents and volunteers play a vital role in enabling this provision to happen.

Excellent, well-trained, highly committed teaching assistants... play a very effective role in supporting the learning of small groups and individuals. Pupils with disabilities and special educational needs, and those supported by the pupil premium, have their needs met exceptionally well, enabling them to make outstanding progress. Strong, positive relationships and a very caring, supportive school community keep pupils extremely safe, and mean they behave in an exemplary manner and are highly motivated learners.

Excellent topics fully engage pupils in their learning and ensure they do extremely well, particularly in art and physical education, and in the outstanding range of after-school clubs that the school provides. Parents are extremely happy with the school and this is reflected in their high levels of support for all school activities, especially the early-morning reading sessions. Strong, inspirational leadership by the headteacher, fully supported by senior leaders and all staff in his quest to develop all pupils to their full potential, means that the school provides an outstanding education.

Highly effective governors give a strong level of challenge and support to the school and have played an important role in ensuring excellent provision.
