Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils' achievement is outstanding.

During their time at the school the progress they make is excellent. By the end of Year 6 pupils' attainment is significantly above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics. The quality of teaching is outstanding and rarely less than good.

Lessons are highly enjoyable and very well planned, enabling pupils to flourish during their time at the school. All staff have very high expectations of pupils. They work exceptionally hard to ensure that the learning activities they provide are matched to the individual needs of the pupils.

Overall, the marking of pupils' work is of... a very high standard. However, on a few occasions pupils do not follow up on suggestions to improve their work made by the teacher. At times, marking does not provide pupils with sufficient challenge.

Pupils are very proud of their school and of the fact that they are involved when key decisions are made, for example as members of the school council. Pupils are exceptionally well behaved whilst at school and out on visits. Discussions with pupils highlight that they feel very safe and well cared for.

Pupils love coming to school. As one pupil commented, 'I learn a lot here and that makes me clever'. The range of enrichment activities provided by the school is superb and contributes significantly to pupils' learning and development.

The school is exceptionally well led by the head teacher. She is strongly supported by an effective deputy, senior management team and by staff at every level in the school. The governing body are inspirational and significantly contribute to the success of the school.

The school is continually striving to improve and there is a very strong focus on monitoring the quality of teaching. However, systems to share outstanding practice with other staff are not yet developed to their full potential.
