Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Leaders, governors and staff have pulled together to make significant improvements to the school since the previous inspection.

Since the headteacher's arrival at the school, he and his leadership team have created a culture of high aspiration. All pupils and staff want to do their best. Pupils' attitudes to learning are excellent.

Teaching is of a high standard across the school. As a result, current pupils of all abilities and backgrounds make strong progress, particularly in reading, writing and mathematics. The learning environment is rich and interesting.

The high quality of pupils' work on displays around the school... support learning well. Consequently, pupils take ownership of their learning and deepen their understanding in most subjects National test results for the last three years and pupils' current work in books show that they make outstanding progress in mathematics and writing. Pupils could be doing better in reading, and leaders are aware that progress for the most able readers could be even better.

Improving pupils' use of vocabulary across the curriculum could also be developed Pupils are exceptionally well behaved. They are respectful, polite and caring. Relationships between pupils, and between staff and pupils, are excellent, and are firmly based on mutual respect.

The school's curriculum makes a strong contribution to pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils achieve very well in most subjects. There is scope now to improve on this still further.

In some subjects and lessons, pupils are not learning in sufficient depth or reading sufficiently challenging books or texts. Safeguarding is a strength of the school. Parents and pupils value the care and support that their children receive.

Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are very well supported. These children feel confident and also make very good progress.
