Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

This school inspires pupils, raises their aspirations and successfully promotes their excellent all-round achievement. Leadership at every level is highly effective. Leaders' highest expectations are reflected in how all staff work and in what pupils achieve.

The management of teaching is excellent. Leaders leave nothing to chance in checking the quality of teachers' work and providing whatever guidance and support teachers and teaching assistants need. As a result, pupils make rapid progress in every class.

Governors' incisive knowledge of the school and how well it works, and their continuous challenge are crucial to t...he school's rapid success since the previous inspection when it was judged to require improvement. Governors work hard to reach out to all parents to promote their understanding of the school's work, and of how important good attendance is to their child's learning. Even more could be done to engage with parents so that attendance rises to above average.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is excellent. Children develop excellent social skills in the early years and build on these throughout their time in school. Pupils behave extremely well, demonstrate first-class attitudes to learning and feel entirely safe in school.

Teaching is never less than good; it is frequently outstanding. During lessons, adults check pupils' progress continually. Excellent questioning helps pupils to think deeply about their work and move on rapidly to their next steps.

In the early years, staff provide exciting activities and excellent teaching so that children make rapid progress in all areas of learning. From starting points below those typical for their age in the early years, pupils achieve standards that match and at times exceed national averages at the end of Year 6.
