Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The headteacher is unwavering in her determination to provide the best possible experiences for pupils in the school. She does this extremely well, including recognising the challenge of sustainability as the school converts from an infant to a primary school. Governance is a strength of the school.

Capable governors carry out their duties conscientiously and rigorously. They visit regularly and understand the school well. The headteacher has established an ambitious and highly positive ethos which is helping to drive further improvement.

Dedicated staff are fully supportive. Pupils flourish and thrive because they are very well looked af...ter in a stimulating environment. Individual academic, social and emotional needs are carefully identified and supported.

Children benefit from an exceptionally positive start to their school life in Reception Year. Early years provision is outstanding. Pupils throughout the school make good progress from their starting points.

Attainment at the end of Reception Year and at the end of key stage 1 is well above national levels. Teachers and teaching assistants provide effective support for disadvantaged pupils and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Pupils feel safe and very well cared for in this harmonious environment.

Everyone is valued and treated with respect. Pupils love coming to school. They are completely engaged in their learning and demonstrate exemplary behaviour in and out of lessons.

They take great pride in their school. The quality of teaching is good. Teachers successfully instil in pupils a love of reading.

Leaders ensure that pupils enjoy a wide curriculum that captivates them, particularly through enrichment activities and extra-curricular activities. However, pupils' achievement in some subjects is not as strong as in English and mathematics. Leaders and teachers have built on the strong practice in early years and key stage 1 to devise and implement the key stage 2 curriculum.

Nevertheless, more time is needed to establish provision and deliver outcomes in key stage 2 which are comparable with younger classes. The headteacher is determined that pupils will be as active as possible, and this permeates all aspects of school life. This contributes well to pupils' physical and mental well-being.

Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school.
