Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school. The school is very welcoming to all and especially to those pupils who join the school during the school year. It fully lives out its vision for a school 'where every child is recognised as unique'.

From their starting points, all groups of pupils make at least good progress in their learning. At the end of Year 6, standards are broadly in line with the national average. This represents good achievement.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a strength of the school because children rapidly develop a love of learning. The quality of teaching is consistently good and an increasing amount is outstanding. Key to this is the outstanding care a...nd support, provided by all the adults, for pupils' individual needs.

The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils say, and their parents overwhelmingly agree, that they feel extremely safe and well-cared for in school. Exemplary partnerships with local and international schools provide excellent opportunities for all pupils to fully access all the school offers.

The rich and vibrant curriculum provides exceptionally well for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Strong leadership and dedication from senior leaders and governors is shared by every member of staff. This has been the driving force in the improvements in teaching and learning and pupils' progress since the last inspection.

All staff and governors have a determination to make the school outstanding. As a result, the school is well placed to continue to improve. It is not yet an outstanding school because : Pupils do not have enough opportunities to apply their mathematical skills in the other subjects they study.

Middle leaders are not fully involved in checking all groups of pupils achieve the best they can.
