What is it like to attend this school?

The school has the highest possible aspirations for all pupils to achieve well. This includes pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). These ambitions are realised throughout all aspects of school life.

As a result, pupils achieve exceptionally well. Pupils are extremely enthusiastic about the curricular offer. They feel privileged to use the media room and green screen to create their own short videos.

Pupils live out the school's vision of 'we learn, we lead, we inspire' through their roles and responsibilities. They are proud to be digital leaders, learning ambassadors and junior leaders. These positions give them the opportunity to represe...nt the school and be role models for their peers.

The curriculum helps pupils to keep safe. They are all able to identify a trusted adult in school who they can talk to if they have any worries.

Pupils are confident that everyone is welcome at their school.

They enjoy learning about difference and what makes each person special. They talk confidently about different cultures and religions.

Behaviour in school is exemplary.

From Reception, pupils are taught the school's key learning behaviours and why these matter. Mutual respect is consistently evident between adults and pupils. Pupils understand the importance of the school's four core values of respect, compassion, honesty and cooperation.

They show these in all they do.

What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

The school has designed an excellent, well-sequenced curriculum that clearly identifies what pupils must know. This begins in the early years, where children are immersed in vocabulary.

Language is modelled by adults and helps children to articulate their own ideas. The sharp focus on vocabulary extends throughout the school. Pupils confidently explain the difference between the types of words they learn.

They use this language in their learning. Across all subjects, staff support pupils to remember key concepts. They expertly design activities that help pupils to recall their prior learning.

Staff also routinely check what pupils have understood. When misconceptions are identified, additional support sessions are immediately put in place so these can be addressed.

Pupils' achievement is a priority.

The school is ambitious for every pupil to have the best possible education in order to be well prepared for secondary school. This extends to all areas of school life. Effective routines for the early identification of pupils with SEND mean that pupils get the help they need as soon as possible.

Staff skilfully adapt learning so pupils can achieve alongside their peers. As a result, pupils with SEND achieve particularly well.

The school places great emphasis on reading.

This is due to the firm belief that being able to read enables pupils to be lifelong learners. Children are supported to start learning to read as soon as they enter the early years. Ongoing assessments enable teachers to target particular sounds.

Keep-up sessions allow all pupils to learn the intended sounds at the same pace as their classmates. Expert teaching means that pupils learn to read quickly. A love of reading is promoted through the school's strong curriculum.

The library is an inviting space, which pupils are eager to visit. They are keen to talk about their favourite authors and recite stories.

Routines for excellent behaviour begin in the early years.

Here, children share and take turns amicably. Further up the school, pupils understand the importance of being a role model. Due to the shared high expectations for behaviour, there is a positive atmosphere for learning that allows pupils to thrive.

The school deliberately plans significant opportunities for pupils' personal development. These are masterfully woven through the curriculum and assemblies. Pupils relate their school values to fundamental British values.

They identify these in all they do. There is a wide and varied extra-curricular offer. Clubs range from sports to arts and crafts or board games.

These clubs are very well attended, particularly by disadvantaged pupils, including those with SEND. The curriculum for relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education has been thoughtfully and carefully planned so pupils have the knowledge they need by the end of Year 6. The school ensures that all pupils have equal access to every aspect of school life, including residential trips.

The school, alongside governors, work hard to engage parents. They understand that they are at the heart of the community and build relationships with stakeholders so they can work together. The professional development offer for staff is superb.

The school invests in all staff so that pupils experience high-quality teaching across the school. Staff appreciate the time and support given to them.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.
