Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The outstanding leadership of the headteacher, strongly supported by staff and governors, has successfully driven the school even further forward since the previous inspection. Governors are highly effective and fully involved in all aspects of the school's work.

They demonstrate excellent knowledge of the school, which enables them to hold school leaders thoroughly to account. The curriculum is enriched with memorable experiences and is successfully planned to support pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very well. Pupils' attitudes toward learning are exemplary.

They are confident learners who regularly pro...duce high quality work. Behaviour in classrooms and around the school is excellent. Pupils are highly respectful toward adults and each other.

Pupils say that they feel very safe and well cared for in school. The quality of teaching is excellent. The expectations of the staff are evident in the high standards of work produced by pupils.

Strong teamwork between teachers and teaching assistants usually guarantees a high level of support for pupils with additional needs. However, the small numbers of pupils who find matching letters and sounds challenging are not always given enough support. By the end of Year 6 attainment is well above average and, from their individual starting points, pupils achieve exceptionally well in reading, writing and mathematics.

Excellent leadership of the early years department has resulted in outstanding teaching, and children being very well prepared to join Key Stage 1. Strong relationships with parents are forged when children join the early years and parents remain highly supportive of the school.

Information about this school

This school is similar in size to most primary schools.

The proportion of disadvantaged pupils known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium (additional funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those looked after by the local authority) is well below average. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below average. Most pupils are from a White British heritage and there are very few pupils at the early stages of learning to speak English as an additional language.

The school provides part-time places for three- and four-year-old children in the Nursery. The headteacher is a local leader of education and works closely with both the local authority and the diocese to support other schools. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
