Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Pupils make excellent progress from starting points that are generally below average. At the end of Year 6 pupils achieve standards in reading and mathematics that are well above the national average. Standards in writing, although above national levels, are not quite as high as in reading and mathematics.

Pupils do not always have enough opportunity to apply their writing skills across the curriculum. High quality teaching ensures that pupils learn extremely well. It is consistently at least good, and a good proportion is outstanding.

Teachers plan lessons that stimulate, motivate and engage pupils. Teachers know pupils... very well and set work that enables all pupils to make rapid progress, including those who are eligible for the pupil premium, and those who are disabled or have special educational needs. Teachers challenge pupils to do well and high quality marking ensures that pupils know what they need to do to improve.

Pupils' progress is very carefully monitored, and any slower progress is quickly addressed. Occasionally, in some lessons, teachers provide unnecessary explanations and pupils do not have enough opportunity to think deeply or work things out for themselves. Pupils' behaviour is outstanding in lessons and around the school.

They enjoy school, have very positive attitudes to learning and get on extremely well together. There are excellent relationships between pupils and staff and these are a key strength of the school. Pupils feel completely safe in school and say that bullying is very rare.

They are very well cared for. The school has an enriched curriculum that engages pupils in their learning and makes a strong contribution to their outstanding spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The school is extremely well led and managed.

The headteacher, senior leaders and governors have high ambitions for the school and relentlessly pursue excellence in all areas. They have secured improvements to the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement since the previous inspection.
