Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school The headteacher and deputy headteacher are uncompromising in their ambition for pupils. In close partnership with governors they ensure that high standards are maintained in all aspects of the school's work. Leaders at all levels, including governors, have made outstanding contributions to the sustained and significant improvements in teaching and pupils' achievement.

Teaching and learning are consistently good or outstanding. In lessons, all adults rarely miss an opportunity to extend learning. However, there are opportunities to further extend the depth of learning in reading.

Expectations and aspirations for pupils are exceptio...nally high. Misconceptions are identified and corrected at an early stage, ensuring that pupils continue to make rapid progress. The implementation of a very effective assessment and monitoring system has ensured that progress is checked regularly.

Consequently, all groups of pupils make progress that is above the average for schools nationally. Pupils are very well cared for, and the provision for their safety is exemplary. The early years provision is extremely well managed.

Children in the Nursery and Reception classes learn quickly from low starting points. Focused and effective professional development has led to highly skilled staff who plan exciting learning activities both indoors and out. The school curriculum is enriched with opportunities for pupils to engage in a wide range of activities both within the school and in the wider community.

Opportunities associated with technical and artistic learning could be developed further. The clear and effective behaviour system has resulted in pupils and staff having a good understanding of expectations and consequences. Pupils' attitudes to learning are extremely positive across the whole school.

Leaders ensure that pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness is very well developed through the rich curriculum. Parents and carers and the wider community hold the school and leaders in extremely high regard. The school's work in developing community relationships has had a direct impact on improving outcomes for pupils and keeping them safe, both within and outside the school.
