Information about this school
• The school is slightly below average in size for a primary school. • Most pupils are White British. About a third of pupils come from a wide range of other ethnic heritages. A below-average proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language, and very few are at the early stages of learning to speak English. • The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are supported through school action is well below average. The proportion supported at school action plus or who have statements of special educational needs is also well below average. • The proportion of pupils who are entitled to support from pupil-premium funding is very low. The pupil premium is extra government funding to help the education of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. • The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum standards set for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6. • Since the previous inspection, the school has changed from voluntary-controlled to voluntary-aided status.
Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is an outstanding school. • All pupils make excellent progress regardless of their background. • A consistent focus on improving teaching and achievement by all leaders, including the governing body, has raised both to be outstanding since the previous inspection. • Standards are high and continue to rise. The majority of pupils achieve above the level expected for their age by the time they leave. • Children get off to a strong start in the Reception class, and build a firm foundation for their great success when they are older. • Pupils’ exceptionally positive attitudes to learning, strong working relationships and excellent behaviour all contribute to their outstanding progress, as do their high attendance levels. • Pupils respond extremely well to teachers’ very high expectations of their work and behaviour. They persevere in the face of difficulties and take a pride in their accomplishments. • Pupils feel extremely safe in school and make a major contribution to this by their own actions, and their efforts to support each other. • Pupils’ learning and enjoyment are supported by the exciting, internationally-themed curriculum that the school provides. Leaders are already planning how the many strengths in this provision can be sustained when a new National Curriculum is introduced next year. • The school promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development extremely well. • Teachers successfully use the school’s excellent assessment system to plan work for pupils that is at the right level of difficulty, so it is challenging but manageable. • Pupils’ benefit from good quality marking of their work, which is consistent across the school. Pupils are clearly shown how they have done, and where they have made mistakes.
