Teachers' assessment of pupils' individual needs and the excellent systems used by the school to support pupils ensures that they are able to make outstanding progress. The classroom learning environments created by teachers contribute strongly to the interest and excitement of pupils.

This engages them in thei...r learning and allows lessons to move forwards at a brisk pace. Pupils behave exceptionally well. Their positive attitudes and expectations for learning are a significant factor in the excellent progress made in lessons.

The opportunities provided for the social, moral, spiritual and cultural development of pupils contribute strongly to pupils' academic achievement and personal development. The school has developed strong partnerships including links with other local schools which have aided pupils' academic and personal development. The headteacher, staff and governors work closely together and form a highly effective team.

Together, they have overseen systematic improvements since the school's previous inspection. All have a relentless commitment to improving already high standards. Pupils demonstrate an excellent awareness of how to keep themselves and others safe.

Information about this school

The school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is well-below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is similar to the national average. All pupils speak English as a first language. The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium (additional government funding to help pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, children in the care of the local authority and children whose parents are in the armed forces) is well below the national average.

There are no children from armed forces families currently in the school. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. A new Chair of the Governing Body took up her post in September 2012.
