This is an outstanding school This school is an extremely welcoming place, where pupils' work is celebrated through displays all around the place. Senior leaders and governors set the highest expectations, which are central to raising achievement for all pupils in this exceptionally effective school.
The leadership team works very well together to ensure there are sustained improvements in the high quality teaching linked to pupils' progress. Standards are very high in English and mathematics, with many pupils, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, making progress that is well above that expected nationally. Marking contributes very strong...ly to the high rate of progress pupils make in all classes.
It is closely linked to pupils' next steps for improvement, through individuals' learning journals and opportunities to respond to marking and correct their work. The range of high-quality activities in and beyond the school day has an extremely positive impact on the academic learning, behaviour and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils. Pupils thoroughly enjoy coming to school, and their behaviour and relationships contribute exceptionally well to their learning.
Home-school books, weekly drop-in sessions to meet with teachers and the regular sharing of pupils' progress ensure an excellent partnership with parents and carers.
Information about this school
The school is much larger than the average-sized primary school. It has increased in size in recent years, since it was rebuilt in 2008.
There are currently three forms of entry across the school, apart from Year 6. The proportion of pupils eligible for pupil premium funding, which provides additional resources for looked after children, pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children of service families, is well below average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds is well above average and the proportion who speak English as an additional language is higher than average, particularly lower down in the school.
No alternative provision is organised for pupils. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported through school action is around the national average, as is the proportion of those supported through school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
