Pupils' achievement is outstanding and they make excellent progress throughout the school in all subjects. Standards reached by pupils at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 are consistently well above average. Teaching is outstanding.

Lessons are exciting and interesting and teachers inspire their pupils to develop a strong love of learning. Teaching assistants are highly skilled and work effectively with their teachers to provide excellent supp...ort to all their pupils. Pupils feel very safe and their behaviour is exemplary.

All parents who responded online (Parent View) agree that this is the case.

There is a positive atmosphere in the school with all pupils and adults believing in the same values of respect for each other. In the words of one staff member, 'Working here is a unique experience; it really is a special place.' Leadership and management at all levels, including governance, are outstanding and committed to a consistent push for excellence.
