Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school As the result of outstanding leadership and management, including that of the governing body, the high-quality provision has been maintained, and the already high attainment reported at the previous inspection built upon.

Pupils' achievement is outstanding. Pupils of all ages and capabilities make remarkable progress in all subjects. The excellent provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage gives children a very good grounding in all areas of learning.

Pupils' performance in music is exceptional. Their singing is of a very high standard and a joy to behold. Teaching is outstanding.

Staff have embraced the high-quality t...raining provided and used the ideas gained from training such as 'outstanding teaching' to improve their skills even further. Adults are very successful in ensuring all pupils are fully included in all activities and able to learn regardless of disability, special educational need, or background. Pupils' attitude to learning and their behaviour are outstanding.

They have a thirst for knowledge which they are keen to share with their friends and adults. Their attendance is well-above average. Pupils' spiritual moral, social and cultural development is outstanding.

Pupils talk knowledgeably and sensitively about the similarities and differences with pupils from an inner-city school, and with their e-pals in Nigeria. Considerable support is available to families. Parents report exemplary links with medical and other professionals, and with Catholic counsellors.

This contributes significantly to the well-being of pupils and their families. Forward-thinking, passionate leadership is at the heart of this thriving school. Staff, pupils and their families share their leaders' aspirations to 'aim for the stars' and to 'be the best'.

Leaders know precisely what they need to do to improve further. That is why they are now working on pupils' literacy and numeracy in other subjects.
