Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils reach standards that are consistently above average. They are exceptionally well prepared for their future lives.

Reading standards are high because pupils read widely and often. Teachers show high expectations of what pupils can achieve, and have been very effective in motivating and enabling pupils to make excellent progress in all subjects. More-able pupils are set harder work, especially in mathematics, so they can achieve the higher levels.

However, not as many exceed nationally expected progress in writing as in reading and mathematics. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage make an excellent start in developin...g their reading, writing and number skills. They make rapid and sustained progress across all areas of learning.

Teaching assistants and other adults work closely with teachers to ensure that no pupils, including those who have specific learning needs, fall behind in their work. Pupils say they feel very safe, and very well looked after. Their enjoyment of school and commitment to their learning are shown in consistently high levels of attendance.

Pupils' behaviour is exemplary and they have exceptional attitudes to learning. The range of subjects and learning activities make an excellent contribution to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The school is led very well by the headteacher and deputy headteacher, whose high expectations are shared by all staff and governors.

The expertise of staff is called upon to help improve education in other schools. The school's leaders and governors are well placed to maintain high standards. As a team, they have been highly successful in improving the quality of teaching and learning since the previous inspection.

Parents are highly positive about all aspects of their children's education.
