Key Findings

This is an outstanding school.

The excellent leadership of the headteacher ensures that pupils from all cultural and social backgrounds achieve highly as a result of a stimulating curriculum, exceptional teaching and outstanding care. Pupils' achievement is outstanding. From starting points that are generally well below age-related expectations, pupils make outstanding progress to attain above average standards in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6.

Pupils who speak English as an additional language and those who are disabled or have special educational needs make outstanding progress. There are excellent outcomes for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Teaching is outstand...ing.

Teachers allow pupils to apply their skills in exciting, investigative activities that are well-matched to the learning needs of individual pupils and offer appropriate challenge. While teachers model learning clearly so that pupils know what they are to do and to learn, occasionally teachers offer too much help. They do not always give pupils clear advice about how to improve their work or allow them time to act upon that advice.

Behaviour is outstanding. 'Nurture groups' help pupils from different cultural backgrounds to play and learn extremely well together and feel exceptionally safe. They enjoy school greatly and say that misbehaviour is extremely uncommon, although when it does occur it is effectively dealt with by their teachers.

Leaders and managers accurately evaluate the school's strengths and weaknesses and use the outcomes to target improvements through exceptionally well-focused continuing professional development. Data analysis effectively measures attainment and pupils' progress. Occasionally, leaders monitor what teachers do in lessons at the expense of the quality of the learning experience for pupils and the progress they make.

The governing body supports and challenges the school extremely well..
