Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Most children start school with skills that are typical for their age. They make excellent progress and almost all reached, and well over half exceeded, the nationally expected standards in their tests at the end of Year 6 last year.

The Reception class provides children with joyful and exciting experiences which are a wonderful start to school life and help them to develop an enthusiasm for learning. Lessons are exceptionally well planned and almost all provide interesting and challenging tasks which enable learning to move at a fast pace. Pupils respond wholeheartedly to teachers' high expectations and so they make exceptional progress....

Pupils are extremely polite and very well behaved and treat others with great respect. They are eager to learn and participate enthusiastically in lessons. Attendance is high.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted very effectively and this contributes to the harmonious working atmosphere and prepares pupils very well for the future. The headteacher shows exceptional determination in driving forward improvements. The rigorous management of teachers' performance by senior leaders has been used to very great effect to identify training needs and so improve the quality of teaching and raise attainment to a high level.

Governors are a regular presence in school and give excellent support and informed challenge to senior leaders.

Information about this school

The school is similar in size to the average primary school and each class contains a single age group. Almost all pupils are from a White British background.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is low. The proportion of pupils supported at school action is below average, as is the proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs or disabled pupils. The proportion of pupils whose first language is not English is below average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. There is a breakfast and after-school club on site which is managed by the governing body. Two new class teachers and a part-time teacher joined the school at the start of this term.
