Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Consistently outstanding leadership has driven the school from strength to strength since the previous inspection.

Governors check all aspects of the school's work thoroughly and continually challenge it to improve. Parents and staff fully support the school's leadership and are equally committed to its success. Pupils' behaviour and conduct around the school are impeccable.

They have excellent attitudes to learning. They feel valued by adults who work in the school, and entirely safe. The quality of teaching throughout the school is outstanding.

Pupils are consistently challenged by work that is above expectations for t...heir age and they enjoy these challenges. The Early Years Foundation Stage gives children an excellent start so they achieve exceptionally well. Standards at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 are consistently well above national averages in reading, writing and mathematics.

More pupils than previously achieve the very highest possible standards in mathematics, although this is not yet the case with reading and writing. Pupils, year- on-year, make excellent progress.

Information about this school

This is an average-sized primary school in which the majority of pupils are White British.

The proportion of pupils supported by pupil premium funding is below average. The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. A very small proportion of pupils is supported by school action only.

The proportion supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average. The school meets current floor standards which are the minimum expectations set by the government for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6. The headteacher provides support for leadership within the cluster of other local authority primary schools with which it works.
