Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils make exceptional progress as they move through the school from the Nursery and Reception classes.

By the end of Year 6, they reach standards which are above average in reading, writing and mathematics. Teaching over time is outstanding and pupils respond well to their teachers' very high expectations of them. Teachers' excellent written and spoken advice on how to improve further is regularly followed by pupils.

Pupils from different groups, including disabled pupils, those who have special educational needs and those who receive the pupil premium funding, make at least good and often better progress because adults underst...and their individual needs and provide excellent support for them. Children in the Nursery and Reception classes receive very effective help and soon gain confidence, becoming keen, motivated learners. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding.

They show their exceptionally positive attitudes to learning and freely use their initiative to help others around the school. Pupils feel very safe and are excellent role models, representing their peers' views through the school council known as 'Crampton Voice'. The school vision is evident everywhere and mutual respect and success for all are at the heart of the school's work.

All pupils enjoy a varied and stimulating learning experience; they study French, play musical instruments and participate in choral and highly regarded drama performances. This helps to keep motivation high and contributes strongly to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Leadership is outstanding.

School leaders work very closely together as a team to maintain the highest quality teaching in all classes. Their regular checks on learning prompt swift actions to coach and support staff, and have helped new staff to settle quickly into the school. Staff and parent support for the leadership team is unanimously positive and praiseworthy.

Governors are skilled, knowledgeable and know the school extremely well. They provide high levels of support and challenge, ensuring that the school continues to improve rapidly.
