Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Teaching in all year groups and across all subjects is of a consistently high standard. As a result, current pupils are making rapid progress in all subjects, including reading, writing and mathematics.

Teachers provide pupils with exciting learning experiences in a wide range of subjects. Pupils' learning is enriched and developed with many trips and visits. The carefully planned curriculum gives pupils a well-rounded education, preparing them well for the future.

Teachers provide pupils with many opportunities to develop their writing skills successfully in different subjects. However, pupils in key stage 1 do not consistently f...orm their letters correctly. This does not help them to develop their handwriting skills as well as they could.

Children in the early years have an excellent start to school life. Exceptional leadership, teaching of the highest quality and stimulating learning environments enable children to make rapid progress in their learning. Pupils' behaviour is exemplary.

The school is calm and orderly, which creates a positive climate for learning. Leaders address any rare incidents of poor behaviour quickly. Leaders' overview of patterns of inappropriate behaviour is at an early stage of development.

The pupil premium funding is used very well to provide additional support for disadvantaged pupils. These pupils make particularly strong progress to help them catch up with their peers. Pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities are well supported.

Teachers plan work which is precisely matched to their needs and which helps them to make rapid progress. Some systems to support these pupils have only recently been introduced and are yet to be used consistently by all staff. The headteacher's passion and determination to secure the best possible outcomes for all pupils is shared by the whole school community.

Staff appreciate the high-quality professional development they receive to help improve their skills. All leaders contribute exceptionally well to school development and have helped the school to improve significantly since the last inspection. Leaders ensure that safeguarding is of the highest priority.

All staff are vigilant about any signs of potential danger. Pupils say they feel safe in school. The multi-academy trust has a clear overview of the school's performance and holds leaders to account for it.
