Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils' achievement is outstanding.

They consistently reach high standards of attainment in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. They make excellent progress, often from very low starting points on entry to school and often exceeding the progress expected for primary-age pupils across the country. Outstanding teaching means that after an excellent start in the Nursery and Reception classes pupils continue to build on their skills, year by year, as they move up through the school.

Teachers have high expectations. Learning activities are carefully matched to pupils' needs, with a well-judged balance between challe...nge and support for pupils of all abilities. This contributes strongly to pupils' excellent achievement.

Pupils' behaviour is exemplary. They feel extremely safe, they are happy and secure, ready and able to learn and progress successfully. They have trusting relationships with the adults in school.

Their attendance is above average. Pupils are proud of their school. They contribute in many ways to making it a happy place for everyone, including acting as influential school councillors.

The headteacher's excellent leadership is strongly supported by an effective deputy headteacher, by very knowledgeable governors and by staff at every level in the school. There is a relentless pursuit of on-going improvement; for example, the school is currently focusing on ways to help pupils develop their literacy skills even more rapidly.

Information about this school

The school is similar in size to most other primary schools.

Most pupils are White British, with English as their home language. Currently, no pupils are at an early stage of learning English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is above average as is the number of pupils at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil-premium funding is above average. The school meets the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. The school provides a breakfast club every day during term-time.

A new headteacher was appointed in April 2010 and a new deputy headteacher was appointed in September 2011. There have also been a number of changes in teaching and support staff since the time of the school's previous inspection, in the Early Years Foundation Stage and in Key Stages 1 and 2. Since the school's previous inspection it has gained the International Schools Award (Intermediate Level) and has received the National Princess Diana Award for its work on school buddies.
