Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Achievement is outstanding.

Pupils make rapid progress from their starting points and this is sustained throughout their time at the school. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage make good and often excellent progress and are very well prepared for their next stage in learning. The standards reached at the end of Key Stage 1 are consistently above average in writing, mathematics and in reading.

At the end of Year 6, significantly higher proportions of pupils achieve the higher Level 5 in reading, writing and mathematics than seen nationally. Achievement at the highest Level 6 in writing and mathematics is outstanding with ...a quarter of pupils reaching standards well above those expected for their age. Teaching is always good and frequently outstanding.

Teachers have high expectations for all their pupils and this is reflected in the quality of learning seen in lessons and in work books. Well targeted support, delivered by teachers and highly trained teaching assistants, ensures that all pupils make good and better progress. Pupils are extremely well behaved and love learning.

They are able to work effectively in pairs, groups and individually. Pupils say they are happy, feel safe and enjoy the diverse range of additional activities offered that widen their experiences. Pupils are very well mannered, wear their uniform with pride and relish holding positions within the school where they can show how caring, considerate and responsible they are.

The headteacher has created a climate where all staff share in her passion for the pursuit of excellence. The headteacher and senior staff are relentless in seeking to continually improve the school. This is seen in the recent development of reasoning and problem solving skills in mathematics, and in the teaching of spelling and Level 6 reading.

The governing body is particularly strong. Governors know the school well and actively support and challenge the school to improve further. Christian values underpin the highly motivating range of social, moral, spiritual and cultural activities that pervade the school.
