Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Pupils have made outstanding progress in reading, writing and mathematics since the previous inspection. Standards of work are now high in all year groups, and well above average in Year 6. Teachers show extremely high expectations of what pupils can do, and pupils consistently rise to the challenge.

Teachers give pupils excellent guidance to help improve their work. Pupils have mature conversations with teachers about how well they are working and how they can do even better. Pupils' behaviour in lessons and around school is exceptionally good.

They have excellent attitudes to learning and push themselves to achieve as ...well as they can. Pupils are pleasant and polite, both to adults and each other. Older pupils look out for younger ones, taking on responsibilities such as leading playtime activities.

Pupils feel safe. They understand how to keep themselves safe in different situations such as on the roads, when using the internet and when playing or working in the sun. Under the outstanding leadership of the headteacher, the quality of teaching and pupils' achievement have improved rapidly.

The headteacher has developed a strong team of leaders who rigorously check pupils' progress. Anyone in danger of falling behind is quickly helped to keep up, so all groups of pupils make outstanding progress. Governors are very supportive.

They ask challenging questions to hold leaders accountable for improving the school, and visit regularly to see for themselves how it is doing. Strong links with the church and local community support pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development especially effectively.

Information about this school

The school is larger than the average-sized primary school.

The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium, which is additional funding for pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority, is below average. Most pupils are White British, and speak English as their first language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported through school action is above average.

The proportion supported at school action plus or through a statement of special educational needs is below average. The headteacher joined the school in September 2012, shortly before the previous inspection. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.
