Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. There has been significant and sustained improvement since the last inspection. Areas identified as in need of improvement have been very successfully developed.

Attainment is consistently high in mathematics and above average in reading and writing and standards have continued to rise year-on-year. A significant number of pupils join the school with knowledge and skills that are well below those typical for their age but all groups of pupils make outstanding progress because : the quality of teaching is often outstanding. The excellent role model provided by adults creates mutual respect and harmony in the classrooms, around the school a...nd out in the playground.

As a result behaviour is exemplary. Pupils feel extremely safe and well looked after and this view is fully supported by both pupils and parents. Attendance has improved considerably and is now above average.

The driving force behind the school's success is the ambition and relentless effort of the headteacher, staff and governors to ensure that all pupils achieve to the very best of their ability. The school displays pupils' work attractively and celebrates their efforts. It provides a purposeful environment that fully encourages learning.

Rigorous monitoring and training have developed a strong whole-school teaching team. The headteacher and deputy headteacher lead by example. The exciting curriculum is exceptionally well planned, practical and stimulating.

Pupils' achievement is outstanding because of the very consistent approach to the teaching of literacy and numeracy across the school. Strong provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development underpins all aspects of the school's work.
