This is an outstanding school The passion and commitment of governors, leaders and staff for the welfare and education of children ensure that pupils thrive.

Children gain a firm foundation in Reception, which enables them to excel and make outstanding progress through the school. As a result, pupils' attainment at the end of Year 6 is high across English, mathematics and science. Teaching is consistently skilful and highly effective.

Pupils have excellent tuition and support from their class teacher, teaching assistants and some subject-specialist teachers. Pupils benefit from the continuity of teaching and care brought about by a stable staff group. Teachers... know the pupils and their families well.

The school constantly reviews and plans for the needs of all its pupils. It is highly inclusive and, as a result, pupils who are disadvantaged and pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) make very strong progress. Leaders responded rapidly to the areas for improvement in the short inspection that took place in June 2018.

The school provides a broad, interesting and highly engaging curriculum that ensures that pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is excellent. The headteacher and staff are starting to arrange opportunities to share ideas, knowledge and planning with teachers from other local schools.

Pupils enjoy a rich curriculum that introduces them to languages, humanities, and musical, scientific and mathematical knowledge. Leaders recognise that the next step is to identify essential knowledge and skills that pupils need to acquire in the long term for success.
