Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school The headteacher and senior leadership team provide exceptional leadership and are ambitious for all pupils.

A dedicated team of staff, whose members share the headteacher's drive and commitment, ably supports them. Governors are equally ambitious and bring a wide range of expertise to the school. They regularly consider the quality of teaching and the progress pupils make.

They support and challenge leaders in equal measure. Rigorous systems and procedures underpin the school's work to continually raise pupils' outcomes. Any pupils at risk of falling behind are identified quickly.

Staff then provide extra guidance and sup...port to help them catch up. Teaching is highly effective and extremely well- matched to the needs of pupils. As a result, pupils from different starting points currently make strong progress, particularly in Reception and key stage 1.

The school's extensive curriculum is vibrant and dynamic. It is enriched by visits and visitors. Pupils find learning interesting.

The compelling range of stimulating activities ensures that pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding develops well. It prepares them for life in modern Britain. Pupils' behaviour is exemplary in and out of lessons.

A strong sense of harmony pervades the school. Pupils, proud to be members of the friendly and welcoming school community, are unfailingly polite and courteous. Children in the early years thrive due to the wide range of stimulating and challenging activities.

They are happy, very well looked after and love their learning. As a result, children make rapid progress and leave Reception very well prepared for Year 1. Parents and carers are extremely happy with the school.

They highly value and appreciate the quality of care and support their children receive. This is a very inclusive school, where pupils' individual needs are recognised and met. The school provides excellent nurture and support.

As a result, pupils say that they feel safe and well cared for. By the time they leave key stage 2, the proportion of pupils attaining the expected and higher standards in reading and writing are increasingly above the national average. Leaders, however, recognise that in mathematics the proportions attaining the expected and higher standards need to rapidly increase.

Action is being taken to address this.
