Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Senior leaders and governors have successfully made further improvements to the school since its last inspection. Senior and middle leaders work towards a common goal, evaluating the school’s effectiveness accurately. They use information with great skill to decide on priorities for improvement. Teachers make sure that pupils of all abilities and needs are given work that challenges and inspires them. As a result, pupils make outstanding progress in a full range of subjects. The curriculum ensures that pupils understand how the school’s values are echoed in the world around them. Provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural education is excellent. Teachers ensure that the most able pupils are challenged to deepen their thinking and incorporate sophisticated ideas into their work. Occasionally, some do not pick up when pupils are ready to apply reasoning skills in mathematics. Leaders and governors use additional funding effectively so that disadvantaged pupils achieve as well as other pupils nationally. Pupils’ behaviour and their personal development are outstanding. Their exemplary attitudes to learning ensure that rates of attendance are well above average. Governors know the school very well and provide excellent support and challenge to school leaders.
