Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Achievement is outstanding because all groups of pupils make rapid and consistent progress throughout the school and attain much higher standards in reading and writing than similar pupils nationally, despite weaker but improving standards in the Year 1 national phonics screening check. Progress in mathematics is at least good and rapidly improving. Pupils make rapid and sustained progress across many subjects because teachers inspire and enthuse them by making learning relevant and linking it to real-life situations.

Teachers and leaders have high expectations of themselves and of pupils. Pupils know they are expected to do well..., work conscientiously and take pride in their outstanding achievements. Teachers frequently use information about how well pupils have learned to help them plan future lessons.

This information is checked regularly and teaching changed to make sure that all pupils continue to do exceptionally well. Much of the teaching is outstanding and never less than good. It involves and interests all pupils and meets their individual needs exceptionally well.

The curriculum is exciting and pupils are keen to learn. They have many opportunities to extend their learning through visits and visitors to school. Clubs are well attended.

Behaviour is outstanding because pupils' attitudes to learning are extremely positive across all subjects. They care very well for one another, feel safe, and take pride in all that they do. Leaders and governors have exceptionally high ambitions for the school.
