Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Achievement is outstanding. The pupils make rapid and sustained progress across the school from their starting points.

By the end of Key Stage 1 and 2, attainment is significantly above average. Standards have been above average for a considerable period of time. Progress in mathematics and reading has improved considerably since the last inspection.

Attainment in English has been stronger than the mathematics. However, there are significant signs of improvement in all areas of mathematics. The quality of teaching is outstanding over time.

The teaching seen during the inspection was consistently at least good and some wa...s outstanding. This high quality teaching helps to raise standards quickly for all pupils. All teachers have an accurate understanding of what pupils are able to do.

This means that the work pupils are given meets their varying learning needs. Teachers' expectations of pupils' standard of work are very high. Pupils are challenged to achieve their very best across all subject areas.

Teaching ensures that all pupils are well motivated and thoroughly engaged in all their work. The pupils' attitudes to their work and their behaviour are exemplary. Leaders' actions to improve the school have been very effective and their ability to constantly improve the school is impressive.

Leaders have ensured that all teachers accurately assess pupils' abilities. As a result, information about pupils' achievement is reliable and accurately reflects the school's performance. Staff are rigorously held to account for the progress of all pupils in all subjects.

Leaders are regularly given a range of opportunities to review the quality of provision in their areas of responsibility. Their skills in evaluating pupils' achievement and the quality of teaching are well developed. There is some exemplary practice in place for the effective teaching of reading.

However, systems of monitoring are not yet resulting in consistent practice across the school. The governing body has the knowledge and the skills that they need to hold the school to account for its performance. Attendance is well above average and has been over a period of time.
