Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Highly effective leadership by the headteacher and other leaders, including governors, ensures that the school continues to improve rapidly.

Rigorous systems and procedures underpin the school's work to raise pupils' outcomes. They are highly consistent and lead to very strong self-evaluation. Teaching is outstanding because leaders invest heavily in training and supporting staff.

They also hold them to account for pupils' performance. Pupils' behaviour is extremely good. Pupils are enthusiastic about learning and want to do their best.

The progress of pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities is... very strong. The provision in the specialist resource base (SRB) is outstanding, as staff meet pupils' individual needs extremely well. Pupils greatly enjoy coming to school, where they feel safe, and this is reflected in their above-average attendance.

The school's curriculum is vibrant and dynamic and enriched by visits and visitors. Pupils make the same very strong progress in other subjects as they do in English and mathematics. Children get off to an excellent start in the Nursery and Reception classes.

The assessment system captures children's achievements very well and engages parents too. While outcomes are very high by the end of Year 6, children's very low starting points mean that they do not have time to reach and exceed national standards by the end of the Reception Year. This is especially the case in writing.

The school's website does not capture the barriers to learning some pupils face or explain the school's strategy for overcoming them fully.

Information about this school

The school does not meet requirements on the publication of information about the barriers to learning for disadvantaged pupils on its website. The school is larger than the average-sized primary school.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is below average. Almost two thirds of pupils are supported by the pupil premium, which is very high. The proportion of children who receive support for their SEN and/or disabilities is broadly average.

The school has specially resourced provision for up to eight pupils aged five to seven who have cognitive difficulties. The school runs a breakfast club. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.
