Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school The headteacher and deputy headteacher have an excellent understanding of the needs of pupils. They skilfully ensure that pupils overcome barriers to achievement. Therefore, pupils progress superbly. Historically, progress between key stage 1 and key stage 2 has been exceptional in reading, writing and mathematics. Current pupils across year groups are progressing very well in a range of subjects. This is the result of outstanding teaching and learning which highly motivate pupils. On some occasions, some most-able pupils do not make strong enough progress in writing. Children in the early years are happy and learn well. Adults accurately assess children’s interests and learning needs to determine their next steps in learning. Consequently, children are often engrossed in learning. Leaders, staff and governors value and respect the wide range of religions and cultures that comprise the school community. Parents and carers agree. For example, a parent commented, ‘The school feels part of my family.’ Leaders and staff have high ambitions for pupils’ progress and development in the broadest sense, including their spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development. Disadvantaged pupils and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are very effectively supported to make strong progress from their starting points. The curriculum has been enhanced to strengthen pupils’ subject specific knowledge. For instance, some pupils have learned how sand is formed. Pupils’ recall, parents’ comments and work in books all show that pupils acquire and retain a substantial amount of wider-curriculum facts and information. Behaviour is outstanding. Staff intelligently capture information about relationships between pupils and skilfully intervene to help pupils manage their feelings and friendships effectively. School leaders and staff protect pupils from harm. Pupils say they feel safe and happy. Parents wholeheartedly agree.
