Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils' achievement levels are outstanding. This includes those few pupils from ethnic minority backgrounds.

A whole-school focus on sustaining high-quality learning is extremely successful; teaching is outstanding and contributes significantly to the high levels of pupils' progress. The headteacher gives a very clear and uncompromising vision for sustaining improvement which effectively guides school development. The inspired leadership of the headteacher has ensured the sustained success of the school.

A highly effective senior management team has been established with the deputy headteacher and inclusion manager sharing the he...adteacher's extremely detailed and rigorous approach to assessing the effectiveness of school actions on pupils' outcomes. The vision for improvement has been successfully shared with staff and governors. Lunchtime supervisors, for example, take assemblies and play a full part in the life of the school.

The behaviour of pupils both in lessons and around the school is outstanding. They display an exceptional maturity for their age and adopt very positive attitudes to their learning. Leadership and management are outstanding.

A highly effective distribution of responsibilities, backed up by most appropriate professional development of staff, has ensured that all leaders play an active and full part in checking the work of the school. Pupils thoroughly enjoy their learning and work extremely well together. There is an obvious sense of mutual respect between pupils and with adults.

Underpinning the high levels of pupils' progress is the very effective use of tracking data. This quickly helps the school to target pupils who are underachieving, and is used by teachers to set challenges for pupils. The external area of the school has been well developed since the last inspection, particularly regarding opportunities to support literacy.

The natural next step is to extend this to mathematics.
