The impact of this work is now evident across all subjects. Leadership of the early years is also highly effective. The governing body is extremely diligent and provides school leaders with effective support and challenge.

Governors have a long association with the school and have been instrumental in improving it. Staff provide pupils with a balance of excellent care and guidance, and academic challenge across a range of subjects. This prepares them very well for junior school.

Pupils in all year ...groups make outstanding progress. Leaders make effective use of monitoring records to create small-group and individual teaching sessions that quickly address any underachievement. Teaching is outstanding and provides exactly the right balance of challenge because of teachers' insightful knowledge of their pupils.
