Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Outstanding leadership at all levels has maintained consistently high standards over time and refreshed many aspects of the school's work since the previous inspection. Leaders have improved the overall quality of teaching. Teachers' knowledge and skills have continued to develop, resulting in high quality learning for pupils.

Governors know the school exceptionally well. They leave no stone unturned when checking on its performance and challenging leaders to maintain standards. Pupils' behaviour is always outstanding in lessons and around the school.

They are ambitious in their learning. The school has excellent procedu...res to make sure pupils are safe. They report feeling entirely safe in school.

Teachers' expectations are consistently high, so pupils are always challenged to achieve to the very best of their abilities. Some pupils describe their teachers as, 'simply the best'. Standards in reading, writing and mathematics are well above national averages and have been consistently so over time.

Almost all pupils throughout the school make excellent progress. However, leaders have not checked on the progress of a very small number of pupils with special educational needs closely enough. Their progress is good, but they do not always do as well as others in all subjects.

Pupils benefit from a rich, well-planned curriculum which provides many exciting opportunities for learning. Pupils are keen to contribute to school life. For example, the suggestion of an outdoor learning area came from the pupils.

Parents are entirely supportive of the school.

Information about this school

This is a larger than average-sized primary school in which almost all pupils are White British. An average proportion of pupils is supported by the pupil premium.

The pupil premium is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is below average. The school meets current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations set by the government for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6.

The headteacher is a Local Leader of Education and, as such, supports other local schools. Before- and after-school care is available on site. This provision is not managed by the governing body and receives a separate report which is available via the Ofsted website.
