Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. From well below average starting points, all groups of pupils make rapid progress as they pass through the school and achieve exceptionally well.

By the end of Key Stage 2, pupils' attainment is above average and is getting better year on year. Pupils make particularly strong progress in reading. Pupils who are eligible for the pupil premium and those who have a disability or special educational needs make exceptional progress because of the very high quality support they receive.

Excellent teaching is the main reason why pupils make such rapid gains in their learning. Teachers expect much of their pupils; questions are probing a...nd tasks are creative, imaginative and demanding. Pupils are strongly encouraged to explain their ideas fluently and with confidence.

In those lessons where pupils' learning is less than outstanding, teachers sometimes miss opportunities to push some of the more able pupils to reach the higher levels. Pupils have outstanding attitudes to learning, show consideration for others and cooperate readily when working in groups. Behaviour in lessons and around the school is excellent.

Pupils get on very well with each other, feel completely safe and enjoy school greatly. There are very strong partnerships with parents and very effective links with outside professionals. In this way, the school ensures that the precise need of every pupil is very well met.

The headteacher's strong and positive leadership is the driving force behind the school's success. She has led the way in taking highly effective steps to greatly improve the quality of teaching and thus pupils' achievement. School leaders check the school's work thoroughly to make sure it remains high quality.

The very well informed governing body plays an active role in the school and regularly checks how well the school is doing.
