Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. The majority of pupils, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs, make outstanding progress from their starting points. A large proportion reaches higher than expected levels in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

Teachers work extremely hard together to ensure pupils know what they are expected to learn and how to go about making improvements in their work, through a highly effective marking system. Staff in the Early Years Foundation Stage work particularly well with parents so that children start school with confidence and a willingness to learn. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding because they... are encouraged to think about their learning and to care for each other at all times, for example, through the high quality system of nurture groups in the school.

They feel very safe. As a result, the school's provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is exceptional. The headteacher, in partnership with senior leaders and an extremely strong governing body, inspires others to achieve at the highest levels.

The quality of teaching is therefore never less than good and is more often outstanding. There is exceptionally high morale at the school. Staff and governors believe in what the school wants to achieve and they work tirelessly towards agreed aims and objectives.

There are strong links with parents who are fully included in and informed about all that the school does. School improvement planning is rigorous so that everyone, including the headteacher, is held to account. Consequently, leaders now recognise the need to improve and update the good provision for information and communication technology, to support even more the outstanding work that occurs in lessons and across subjects.

Information about this school

The school is an average-sized primary school. Most pupils are White British, with English as their home language. A very small minority of pupils are from a range of other backgrounds and heritages and speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of pupils supported through school action is lower than average, as is the proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is well below average. (The pupil premium is additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children who are looked after by the local authority).

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. Recently appointed newly qualified teachers received their training at Manchester Metropolitan University. The headteacher has provided support for the local authority in providing senior leadership training and for a school in another authority.
