Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Children enter the school with a range of skills that overall are above what could be expected for their age.

They make excellent progress during their time in school and attainment is consistently high by the time they leave Year 6. A high proportion of pupils attain the higher Level 5, or above, in both English and mathematics. Teachers ensure that lessons are active and very well planned to engage pupils' interest and so they learn exceptionally well.

Lessons move at a relentless pace to maximise learning opportunities. Occasionally, a teacher moves on to the next step before all pupils have fully understood an idea. At its, and in most classes, marking is of high quality but this is not yet fully consistent across the school.

Pupils' behaviour is exemplary, both in lessons and at playtime, and this makes an excellent contribution to their learning. Attendance has been well above average for several years. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted very effectively and prepares pupils very well for the future.

The very rigorous management of teachers' performance by senior leaders, fully supported by the governing body, has been used very effectively to improve the quality of teaching and sustain high standards. Success in meeting stringent targets is reflected in the pay scales. Governors are a regular presence in the school and provide very well informed challenge and support to senior leaders.

Information about this school

The school is larger than the average sized primary school and all classes contain a single age group. Almost all pupils are from a White British background. None of the small number of pupils from a minority ethnic background is at an early stage of learning English.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium is low. The proportion of pupils supported through school action is low, as is the proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The headteacher supported a local school as executive headteacher for a term in September 2011.

Building work has been completed and all classes are now on the same site. The school meets the government's current floor standards which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics. An independent after-school club on the adjacent site is inspected separately and the report is available on the Ofsted website.
