Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Leadership and management of the school are of the highest quality.

The outstanding headteacher, supported by a very strong deputy headteacher and governing body, has created an ambitious and highly effective culture throughout the school. Leaders know their strengths but are keen to continue to improve within this child-centred school. They have addressed all the areas for improvement identified at the time of the last inspection.

Leaders have ensured that high-quality teaching has led to outstanding outcomes over time. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is consistently of a very high standard. Teachers prepare thor...oughly and plan to meet the needs of pupils with different starting points to help them progress rapidly.

Pupils achieve outstanding outcomes and make rapid progress across the curriculum in every key stage. They develop excellent knowledge, understanding and skills in a range of subjects. The curriculum is broad and balanced.

Fundamental British values and the development of spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness are deeply embedded within it. Pupils are very well prepared for the next stage of their education and for life in modern Britain. Additional funding is used very well.

Pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities make similarly strong progress from their starting points to other pupils in school. The pupil premium funding has helped disadvantaged pupils reach higher levels of attainment than other pupils nationally. Sports funding has been used effectively to increase pupils' participation in a wider range of sports.

The school's work to promote pupils' personal development and welfare is outstanding. Pupils are self-confident and self-aware and they have a well-developed understanding of how to be successful learners. Pupils behave exceptionally well in lessons and their conduct around the school is exemplary.

The early years provision is of a very high quality. It is well led and managed, teaching is outstanding and all groups of children make rapid progress in all aspects of their learning and development. Parents are extremely supportive and fully engaged with the work of the school.

All parents would recommend it to other parents. The school is expanding and is now a teaching school. Leaders and governors are aware that leadership capacity needs to be developed so that the school can continue to improve.
