Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The headteacher's strong leadership and clear vision for the education of the pupils inspires staff to follow her lead.

Strong teamwork is the key to the school's success, with all staff pulling together and learning from each other. Teachers are continually encouraged to reflect on the quality of learning in their classrooms and how it could be improved for all pupils. As a result, teaching is outstanding and is leading to pupils making rapid progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

The highly effective governing body keeps leaders firmly focused on improving the school further. Governors know the headteacher has high expec...tations of the teachers, sets them challenging targets and provides support if a teacher looks like not meeting them. The headteacher makes sure there is a continual check on each pupil's progress so that support can be quickly put in place if any pupil is falling behind their targets.

Teachers question pupils very carefully to check their understanding but very occasionally do not use their responses to extend their thinking further. Children make rapid progress in the Nursery and Reception through interesting and carefully chosen tasks. Teachers use resources and the classrooms both inside and out very effectively to stimulate the children's imaginations and extend their learning.

Learning is made exciting by linking subjects thoughtfully through topic themes based on ideas from the pupils. Topics link subjects creatively and support very well the pupils' development of literacy and numeracy. Pupils are very keen to do well and meet the challenges their teachers set.

They greatly enjoy learning as they find lessons interesting. Their above-average attendance reflects their great enjoyment of school and all that it offers. The pupils' conduct in lessons, when moving around the school and at playtimes is exemplary.

This makes for a calm and harmonious school in which they can learn and develop happily. Pupils say how safe they feel in school and are confident there is always someone to turn to if they are worried about anything.
