Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Pupils' attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is consistently above national averages at Key Stages 1 and 2.

The slight dip in mathematics at Key Stage 2 in 2013 has been robustly addressed by the headteacher and her team. However, the school recognises that progress in mathematics is not as fast as it is in English. Teaching is consistently good, with much that is outstanding.

As a result, pupils make rapid progress in their learning across different subjects. Each pupil is known individually and any additional help they may need to achieve their best is put in place quickly and to good effect. All pupils are highly moti...vated and have a love of learning.

Relationships throughout the school are highly supportive and caring. Pupils are proud of their school and all that they take part in. All school leaders and managers, including governors, are dedicated to seeing the school maintain and raise its high standards, still further.

Parents, carers and staff are all extremely positive about the school's work to help pupils achieve their best and to be well prepared for the next stage of their education. Strong links with other schools in the area allow pupils to participate in a wide range of sporting and social activities that enhance their personal development. Behaviour and safety are both outstanding.

Pupils have a very good understanding of right and wrong and take every opportunity to consider the needs of others. As a result, pupils feel safe and secure in school. Exciting learning and excellent relationships ensure that children in early years make an outstanding start to their education.
