Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

When children start school they make excellent progress in their personal development. They settle into Nursery and learn very quickly. From this very secure foundation, they make outstanding progress in all aspects of their learning when in the Reception class.

Pupils continue to make outstanding progress across the school, owing to consistently high quality teaching over time. By the time they leave the school in Year 4, pupils reach standards that are well above what is typical for their age. Teaching is typically outstanding.

Teachers have high expectations of what pupils can achieve. Well-structured lessons, engagin...g activities and astute questioning inspire pupils to learn and ensure that all pupils make rapid progress. Teaching assistants and other adults work very closely with teachers to ensure that activities are tailor-made and no pupils, including those with special educational needs fall behind in their learning.

Pupils love coming to school. Their behaviour is exemplary and relationships are strong. They have excellent attitudes to learning and participate with enthusiasm in lessons.

They are very well-mannered, polite and very proud of their school. Pupils have an excellent understanding of how to keep safe in different situations, for example, near water, on the beach and when using the Internet. The curriculum is lively and engaging and provides pupils with many memorable experiences.

However, more could be done to develop mathematical skills and scientific understanding through linking planning for this to other subjects. The new headteacher's dynamic and rigorous leadership has quickly established her understanding of the school. She is supported exceptionally well by an assistant head and a very strong team of staff.

Priorities have been quickly established and outstanding practice maintained. Highly skilled governors who are passionate about the school ensure that it continues to maintain its high standards.
