Outstanding leadership at all levels has been effective in making rapid improvements to teaching and pupils' achievement, and motivating pupils to develop outstanding behaviour and attitudes to learning. Pupils make outstanding progress from their starting points and reach high standards in reading, writing and mathematics.

Teaching is outstanding because teachers use their excellent knowledge of what pupils already know to plan work which is highly challenging for pupils of all abilities. Teachers use excellent questioning skills to confirm pupils' understanding and to challenge them further. Teachers give feedback during lessons which h...elps to deepen pupils' understanding.

Teachers' thorough and careful marking helps pupils to understand how to improve their work. A stimulating range of topics across all subjects gives pupils excellent opportunities to apply their reading, writing and mathematical skills in investigations and in solving problems. Pupils' outstanding behaviour and attitudes enable them to concentrate and persevere in all lessons and this supports their learning extremely well.

Pupils are exceptionally happy in school and say that they feel very safe because they trust adults to help them. Staff are trained well to identify any concerns and are very effective in keeping pupils safe. There is an exceptionally calm, purposeful and happy atmosphere in all areas of the school based upon respect, tolerance and thirst for learning.
