Learning builds in a logical order. This all helps pupils to achieve very well.

The reading curriculum is highly effective.

Expert teaching of phonics ensures that pupils become fluent readers. Pupils enjoy reading, and they do so daily. Leaders ensure that all staff and pupils have a shared and common understanding of language development.

All staff are proud to work at this school.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.


When we have judged a school to be outstanding, we will then normally go into the school about once every four years to confirm that the school remains outstanding.

This is called an ungraded inspection, and it is carried out under section 8 of the Education Act 2005. We do not give graded judgements on an ungraded inspection. However, if we find evidence that a school would now receive a higher or lower grade, then the next inspection will be a graded inspection, which is carried out under section 5 of the Act.

Usually this is within one to two years of the date of the ungraded inspection. If we have serious concerns about safeguarding, behaviour or the quality of education, we will deem the ungraded inspection a graded inspection immediately.

This is the first ungraded inspection since we judged the school to be outstanding in June 2017.
