Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The headteacher, school leaders and governors have extremely high expectations of staff and pupils, which have led to strong improvement in all aspects of the school's work since the last inspection. Standards have risen rapidly since the last inspection, so that, by the end of Key Stages 1 and 2, attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is significantly above the national average and improving.

The school is welcoming, caring and supportive of pupils from all backgrounds. Staff are skilled at bringing together pupils from different cultures and developing their language and communications skills right from the start in the Early Ye...ars Foundation Stage. 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.

Teachers and support staff are highly trained and supported to extend their knowledge and skills. They constantly strive to do their best and, as a result, teaching is outstanding. The wide variety of themes and activities provided by the school, including the after-school clubs and visits, ensures that pupils develop skills in a broad range of subjects and are well prepared for their next stage of education.

Pupils are exceptionally motivated and eager to learn and are unreservedly polite and caring of one another. Their behaviour in lessons and around school is exemplary. Pupils are well trained to respond to their teachers' thorough marking and guidance and these support their excellent progress.

The governing body holds the school robustly to account for its performance and its management of the finances and this has strongly contributed to rising standards.
