Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils love their school and love to learn.

They have excellent attitudes towards their work and at all times strive to do their best. Pupils in all year groups make outstanding progress. The standards they attain by the end of Year 6 are well above the national averages and have been since the previous inspection.

Outstanding teaching across the school ensures that all pupils, including those who are disabled or have special educational needs, make excellent progress from their individual starting points. Teachers inspire pupils by planning exciting lessons that capture their imagination. They have very high expectations of what... pupils can achieve and the work provides exactly the right degree of difficulty.

Pupils use their reading, writing and mathematical skills exceptionally well in all the work they do. The quality of marking is exemplary and a strength at the school. The pupils act very well on the advice given by their teachers, or fellow pupils, to improve their work.

Consequently, pupils' achievement is continuing to rise even further. Pupils' behaviour in and around the school is outstanding. Pupils feel very safe in school and are extremely well cared for.

They are always courteous and polite, representing their school very well. However, some pupils do not fully understand what cyber bullying means. Pupils are very proud to represent the school within the community, especially in sport and music.

These are aspects of the school that are very strong due to the importance placed on them by leaders and governors. The headteacher provides inspirational leadership and leads by example. Her example encourages all pupils and staff to achieve their full potential.

Leadership at all levels and governance are highly effective. Together with the headteacher they maintain a relentless focus on continuously improving the achievement of all pupils. A wide range of visits to places of interest and the visitors who bring additional skills and expertise to the school extend pupils' learning experiences.

These additional experiences make an excellent contribution to pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
