Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school The headteacher, with highly effective support from leaders and governors, has provided clear and determined leadership since the previous inspection. Leaders have established a culture of high expectations, with the motto ‘There is no glass ceiling for any child’. Teachers plan extremely well to meet pupils’ learning needs. This is an important factor in almost all pupils making outstanding progress. Teachers ask really challenging questions to encourage pupils to think about their learning. The curriculum captures pupils’ interests. A flexible timetable means that pupils spend good-quality time developing skills in subjects other than mathematics and English. The curriculum is supported by a variety of extra-curricular activities, which children enjoy. The curriculum is underpinned by an effective assessment system. Regular assessments lead to detailed planning for every child. Pupils’ personal development and welfare are outstanding. Exceptional support is provided for all pupils, ensuring that any barriers to learning can be overcome. Pupils are eager to succeed, have positive attitudes to learning and are able to work independently. High standards are evident for all groups of pupils. It is the expectation that all pupils have at least the knowledge, skills and understanding appropriate to their age. Outcomes are outstanding. Mathematics is a particular strength. Children thrive in the early years. They want to learn and rapidly develop knowledge and skills. Highly effective provision leads to outstanding progress. On occasions, teachers do not ensure that pupils think deeply enough before responding and take up more challenging work as soon as they are ready.
