This is an outstanding school. In this caring and nurturing school, pupils from all backgrounds develop excellent personal qualities.

They are polite, confident and articulate young people, keen on helping others. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural qualities are developed to a very high standard, and this is reflected in their excellent behaviour. The school is popular with parents, pupils and staff alike, and is oversubscribed.

Behaviour is excellent. Pupils feel safe and happy. They enjoy school and have highly positive attitudes to learning.

This is reflected in their high attendance. Pupils achieve extremely well during their time at th...e school. Attainment is well above average.

Pupils throughout the school make very strong progress in their learning. This reflects the outstanding quality of teaching over time. All groups make similar progress, so that no group falls behind.

This reflects teachers' high expectations of their pupils, and the care they take to match tasks accurately to pupils' abilities. The curriculum is extremely strong, offering pupils the chance to master new skills. Music, the arts and sports are strengths of the curriculum, and pupils leave school as knowledgeable and well-rounded young people.

Leaders and governors are fully committed to the school and lose no opportunity to work together to drive forward improvement. School leaders have made considerable improvements since the previous inspection. They are astute and exacting in their assessment of the quality of teaching.

As a result, key areas of the school's work, such as pupils' achievement and the quality of teaching, have improved. The school is in an excellent place to continue to improve.

Information about this school

Holy Ghost is a little smaller than the average primary school.

A very small proportion of pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which provides schools with additional funding for children looked after by the local authority, for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, and for those with a parent in the armed services. At Holy Ghost, nearly all of the pupils who qualify for the pupil premium do so through eligibility for free school meals. Around one third of pupils come from a wide range of minority ethnic heritages, and this proportion is a little higher than usual.

An average proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported at school action is lower than average, as is the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
