Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The dedication and inspiration shown by the headteacher motivates all staff to give their very best for the benefit of pupils. The headteacher's passion for learning has created a culture of hard work and excellence throughout the school.

Leaders, managers and governors are determined that standards in reading, writing and mathematics are as high as possible. Improvements in teaching and pupils' achievement are driven relentlessly, for example in the way reading is now taught. The improvements accomplished have proved very effective and have raised standards in all key stages.

Children joining the early years quickly develop the ...skills and confidence to learn at a very rapid rate because the of the school's excellent provision. Pupils make outstanding progress from their individual starting points, regardless of their ability or any barriers to learning. By the end of Year 6, standards are above average in reading, writing and mathematics.

While pupils' achievement is excellent, the school recognises that there remains scope to ensure that the proportion of pupils reaching the higher levels of attainment increases even further. Teaching is outstanding over time. All teachers and their assistants share the headteacher's vision to get the best for and from every child.

They manage pupils' different learning needs very well so that learning proceeds with rigour and pace. However, occasionally, a few pupils spend too long being taught skills that they have already securely mastered and are not always quickly moved on to more challenging work. Pupils' behaviour is exemplary.

They love learning and feel confident with their teachers and their classmates. Pupils show great consideration, respect each other and demonstrate the values the school instils in them from the earliest age. They work hard in lessons because learning is fun.

Younger pupils are very well cared for by older pupils who readily take on these responsibilities with diligence and pride. Pupils say they feel very safe in school. There is an abundance of pastoral care from staff that creates a warm, safe and welcoming environment where excellent relationships flourish.

The school's reputation in the community is very strong and parents acknowledge its many strengths. Their views of the school and its leadership are extremely positive. The rich, diverse curriculum creates highly memorable opportunities for learning.

Families welcome the plethora of visits, visitors and out of school activities.
