This is an outstanding school.'

This is a fantastic school' is one comment that sums up pupils' very positive views and pride in their school. Parents share these positive views. Those who responded to the online questionnaire were unanimous that they would recommend the school.

Achievement is outstanding and attainment is well above average. Pupils, including those with special educational needs and those supported by the pupil premium, make exceptional progress. Reading is taught well, giving pupils high quality skills for learning in all subjects.

Outstanding teaching provides imaginative and challenging activities that stimulate pupils' enthusiasm... so they work hard and see learning as 'educational but also fun'. There are a few minor inconsistencies in the quality of teachers' marking and the way they check pupils' learning in lessons. Pupils' behaviour is exemplary.

They are polite, respectful and considerate. They feel extremely safe at school. This is one reason why their attendance is above average.

The outstanding curriculum offers rich opportunities for high quality learning and memorable experiences. This results in excellent spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The outstanding leadership team is relentless in its pursuit of excellence.

Rigorous checks on the quality of teaching and well-planned professional development underpin the leaders' aims to make the school even more successful. Since the previous inspection, the quality of teaching has moved from good to outstanding, showing that the school has very strong capacity for yet more improvement.

Information about this school

The school is much larger than the average-sized primary school.

The very great majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is below the national average, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is similar to the national average. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals and those children that are looked after) is below the national average.

The school meets the governments' current floor standards, the minimum expectation for pupils' attainment and progress. The school offers before and after clubs. Since the previous inspection, extensive building work has brought the school onto one site.
