Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The headteacher and senior leaders lead this school very effectively. They are supported by a strong team of staff who lead their areas of responsibility extremely well.

Leaders and staff know pupils and their families exceedingly well and have worked exceptionally hard together to ensure that Guilden Sutton is an outstanding school. Pupils make substantial and sustained progress throughout key stages 1 and 2. The majority of pupils start school with skills and abilities broadly typical for their age.

They leave Year 6 with standards above those seen nationally in reading, writing and mathematics. The curriculum provides rich opp...ortunities for pupils' learning. However, opportunities for pupils to develop an understanding of the traditions and customs of wider world cultures are more limited.

Reading, writing and mathematics are integrated well into the various areas of the curriculum. Teaching is outstanding. Teachers have excellent subject knowledge.

They use ongoing assessment information exceptionally well to ensure that the work they set meets individual pupils' learning needs. Consequently, pupils make excellent, lasting progress across the whole curriculum, including in English and mathematics. Members of the governing body are astute, knowledgeable and committed.

They provide a high level of support and challenge for leaders. Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent. Safeguarding procedures are effective.

Pupils say they feel very safe and well looked after in school. Parents are highly supportive of the school. Virtually all parents who responded to the Parent View survey would recommend this school to another parent.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is of a high quality. Their knowledge of other faiths is very well developed. The provision for pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities and for those who are disadvantaged is highly effective.

As a result, these pupils make strong progress from their starting points. Pupils are delightful. They are extremely polite and welcoming to visitors and their behaviour around the school is excellent.

In class, their attitudes to learning are exemplary. Recent changes to the early years provision have already resulted in an increase in the proportion of children gaining a good level of development. However, leaders' actions to secure further improvements have not had sufficient time to make a sustained impact.
