Pupils who receive extra support through additional government funding make the same rapid progress as their classmates. These pupils achieve exceptionally well. The headteacher's relentless drive to ensure high expectations results in excellence for all pupils.

Leaders have used pro...cedures to manage the performance of staff exceptionally well to bring about significant improvements in teaching and achievement since the school was last inspected.

Teachers set tasks that challenge all groups of pupils effectively and make them think hard. Pupils enjoy learning and they do so very well. Teachers regularly and accurately assess pupils' work.

Information about this school

This school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. About half of the pupils are White British, half come from minority ethnic backgrounds and approximately one in ten speaks English as an additional language.

A higher-than-average proportion of pupils join or leave during the school year. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium is almost double the national average. The pupil premium is additional funding provided by the government to support disadvantaged pupils including those who are known to be eligible for free school meals or in local authority care.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is broadly average. Early years provision is part-time in Nursery and full-time in the Reception Year. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress by the end of Year 6.
