The achievement of all groups of pupils in reading, writing and mathematics is good. Teaching is good and an increasing proportion is outstanding. Careful planning ensures lessons are pitched at the right level and ...engage pupils' interest.

Well-targeted and skilfully delivered additional help is provided to those who need it. Marking is excellent, providing pupils with a very clear picture of the quality of their work and where it needs improvement. The fascinating range of activities and subjects offered provides varied learning opportunities and excites pupils' enthusiasm to come to school.

Absence rates are very low. The way pupils behave is exemplary. They display a strong appetite for learning that has a positive impact on progress.

Courtesy and collaboration are the norm and bullying is virtually unknown. Pupils have a firm grasp of how to maintain their own safety and that of others. The headteacher works closely with all staff to set very high expectations for both adults and pupils.

Rigorous checks help ensure that all staff are empowered to perform at a high level. Leaders and managers have established a safe and happy environment where pupils thrive. The governing body has very good systems to check up on the school's work.
