The headteacher has made sure that all staff, pupils and their parents and carers share her remarkable ambition and drive to improve the educational standards and provision at the school. Teaching is consistently good and much is outstanding. Standards have risen rapidly in the last three years, so that by the end of Key Stage 2, pupils' attainment in reading, mathematics and more recently writing, is above average and continuing to improve.
Pupils' speaking and listening skills are outstanding. Pupils who join the school speaking little or no English develop confidence and rapidly acquire language and communication skills that e...nable them to catch up quickly and to make as much progress as the others. The school is committed to encouraging pupils and their families to learn together and, alongside the successful promotion of homework, this contributes significantly to the rise in academic achievement.
The school is welcoming, caring and supportive of pupils from all backgrounds. Pupils' relationships with one another as well as other adults are outstanding. Pupils' behaviour is exemplary.
Pupils are eager to learn and they are unreservedly polite and courteous to one another. Pupils feel very safe and cared for. They relish taking responsibility for particular areas of school life such as keeping the playground safe or being a school councillor.
Excellent personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is at the heart of the school's success and underpins all of the school's strengths. The wide variety of themes and activities provided by the school ensures that pupils develop skills in a broad range of subjects and they are well prepared for their next stage of education. Educational provision and teaching in the Early Years Foundation Stage are outstanding.
Support staff, who work with pupils in need of extra help, are making a strong contribution to rising standards. The governing body holds the school robustly to account for its performance and its management of the finances.
