Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Outstanding leadership from the headteacher and leaders at all levels has established highly effective systems which have been combined with a very clear direction. This has ensured that high standards have been built upon and the quality of provision has been continuously developed and improved.

Governors have a thorough knowledge of the school. They challenge school leaders vigorously and leave nothing to chance. School leaders and governors are very watchful of teaching in the school.

The checks made on the quality of teaching and its impact on achievement, by senior leaders, is very rigorous indeed and has resulted in outstan...ding practice. Parents and staff are overwhelmingly positive in their support for the school's leadership. The early years provision gives children an excellent start to their education.

Their social development is exceptionally good and they make rapid progress. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding, both in lessons and around the school. Pupils enjoy their lessons and are always very keen to learn.

Pupils feel very safe in school because they know that they are cared for extremely well. Teaching is outstanding. Pupils' varying abilities are taken into account so that there is plenty of challenge and support for their learning.

Lots of interesting activities keep pupils on their toes. Standards at the end of Year 2 are above average in reading writing and mathematics, and have been consistently so over the past five years. Pupils also make excellent progress in other subjects, such as French, physical education and, in particular, art.

A small number of boys in Year 2 are not achieving quite as well in writing as other pupils in the school.
