Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

The headteacher provides outstanding leadership and ensures that all pupils achieve the highest levels of academic and personal development. The governing body of the school is highly effective. They know the school well and rigorously hold school leaders to account for every aspect of the school's performance.

School leaders, including governors, focus relentlessly on improving teaching, learning and caring so that pupils can thrive. Teaching is at least good and some is outstanding. All staff have very high expectations of all pupils; their behaviour, their attitudes to learning, the presentation of their work and the progress ...they should make.

Pupils' behaviour is exemplary. Pupils are friendly, engaging, polite, courteous and respectful. They are rightly proud of their school and of their behaviour.

The school's work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding. Parents and pupils say that adults at the school care for pupils very well and that the pupils say they feel extremely safe. Attainment in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2 has been above the national average for the past five years.

On average, pupils have made more than expected progress in reading, writing and mathematics each year for at least the last three years. The school makes highly effective provision for disadvantaged pupils and use the pupil premium grant to very good effect. Consequently, all pupils sustain high levels of progress in reading, writing and mathematics for the whole of their time at the school.

The school's curriculum and ethos promote and sustain a thirst for learning in the pupils who enjoy coming to school. The spiritual, moral, social and cultural curriculum permeates every element of the school and helps to ensure that pupils are very well prepared for the next stage in their education and life in modern Britain. The curriculum and the values-based ethos of the school have an extremely positive impact on all pupils' behaviour and safety, and make a significant contribution to their physical well-being and high rates of academic progress.

The Early Years Foundation Stage meets the needs of children exceptionally well through a range of imaginative and stimulating experiences. As a result, children achieve consistently high rates of progress.
