Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils make excellent progress through the school and their attainment in English and mathematics is well above average.

High-quality teaching inspires, motivates and challenges all pupils, including the most able and those who find learning difficult. Teachers' outstanding subject knowledge enables them to ask probing questions that extend pupils' thinking and deepen their understanding. Pupils' learning is supported very effectively by the well-trained and highly skilled teaching assistants.

Teachers interpret the curriculum in imaginative ways that appeal to pupils. One pupil, reflecting the general view, remarked, 'I come to every day, knowing there will be something exciting to do.' Pupils are unfailingly enthusiastic, polite and extremely well behaved.

They are inquisitive and exceedingly keen to learn. The school is a harmonious, vibrant community where pupils feel entirely safe. They are secure in the knowledge that every individual is valued.

Parents and carers hold the school in high regard. Typical of their comments was, 'a happy, friendly and inclusive school atmosphere with a good community spirit'. The promotion of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is central to the school's core values and is a common thread which binds together teaching, learning and the curriculum.

Both in their daily lessons and in the extremely wide range of extra-curricular activities, pupils enjoy a wealth of opportunities to excel in art, music and sport. Under the headteacher's dynamic and inspirational leadership, all staff share a common ambition to ensure pupils do as well as they can. As a result of determined efforts, the quality of teaching continues to improve.

As a result, pupils' progress has accelerated and high levels of attainment have been maintained over the last seven years. School leaders are extremely well supported by the governors. They keep a sharp eye on pupils' performance and visit the school frequently to gain first-hand information about the curriculum and the quality of teaching and learning.

Information about this school

The school is larger than the average-sized primary school. Most pupils are White British, with around 10% from a range of minority ethnic groups. Very few pupils speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals for whom the school receives additional funding through the pupil premium is well below average. The pupil premium also provides additional funding for children in the care of the local authority and children of parents and carers serving in the armed forces, but there are no such children in the school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is broadly average.

The proportion supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average. Their needs relate mainly to moderate learning difficulties. The school meets the government's floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

A group of parents and members of staff independently run a breakfast and an after-school club. In addition, there is a privately managed pre-school located in the school grounds. The school holds the Healthy Schools, International Schools and Eco Schools awards, Artsmark Gold and the Active mark.
