Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils make rapid progress in reading, writing and mathematics and their attainment by the end of Year 2 is well above the national average. The quality of teaching over time is outstanding.

Teaching is typically lively and engaging and pupils respond very positively to teachers' skilful questioning. Expectations are high and all pupils are pushed to do their very best and develop an 'I can' attitude to their learning. Just occasionally, work is not challenging enough for the more able in mathematics and pupils are not given targets to check how well they are doing.

As a result of high quality support and care from teachers and t...eaching assistants, pupils from different groups, including disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, those with additional funding and those whose first language is not English, make better than expected progress. The teaching of phonics (the links between letters and sounds) is very effective and gives children the confidence to read unfamiliar words by the time they enter Year 1. Pupils' behaviour and attitudes to work are outstanding.

Pupils are polite, courteous and respectful. They are enthusiastic learners and show great willingness to talk about their work with other pupils and adults. They feel very safe at school and enjoy coming to school.

Attendance is average and improving. The promotion of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is extremely effective. Pupils interact well with each other and value the cultural diversity in the school.

Leaders and managers at all levels, including governors, have successfully maintained the outstanding quality of provision and teaching since the previous inspection. Assessment procedures to monitor and track pupils' progress are very effective and help to make sure that learning is rapid for all pupils. School morale is very high and staff, parents and carers strongly agree that the school is effectively led and managed.

Parents and carers are very supportive of the school and acknowledge the caring nature of the headteacher and all the staff.

The school currently has no children who are looked after by the local authority or children of service families.

The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is well above the average, as is the proportion of pupils whose first language is not English. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs who are supported by school action is average, and the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The school has changed from a first school for three- to eight-year-olds to a three- to seven-year-old infant and nursery school since the previous inspection.
