Key Findings

This is an outstanding school. Inspirational leadership, innovative teaching and extremely well-motivated pupils are instrumental in its success. Furthermore, the school promotes outstanding spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and enrichment to pupils' learning within the outstanding curriculum.

Children make good progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Their progress is not outstanding because the outdoor environment is not fully utilised to provide children with enough opportunities to carry out their own lines of enquiry and investigations. Rapid and sustained progress is made through Key Stages 1 and 2 so that achievement, for all pupils, by the end of Year 6, is outstanding..../>
When they leave school in Year 6, their attainment is significantly above average in reading, writing and mathematics. The quality of teaching is outstanding. Pupils love learning and fully embrace the high level of challenge set in all lessons.

They enthusiastically say, 'We were born for this'. Teachers and support staff are extremely attentive to pupils' personal and academic needs. Parents and carers typically report, 'This is a safe and happy school with a sense of community where children look out for and respect each other.'

This view is fully endorsed by inspection findings. Pupils' behaviour around the school and their attitudes to learning are outstanding and their attendance is consistently above average.
