Roles and responsibilities are distributed well, ensuring that all areas of the school are covered fully. Pupils make good progress in English, mathematics and a wide range of other subjects. Teaching i...s good throughout the school.

Relationships between staff and pupils are strong and this ensures that classrooms are happy and productive places. Pupils behave extremely well and show excellent attitudes to learning. They are polite, respectful and courteous towards each other, to adults and to visitors to the school.

The early years provides children with an outstanding start to their education. The provision is particularly well led and the quality of teaching results in children making rapid progress. The school's marking and feedback policy is followed more closely in some classes and year groups than others.
