Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Children make an excellent start to their early education because of outstanding provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Pupils' achievement in English and mathematics in all key stages is exceptional, regardless of their ability and background. Pupils read and write exceptionally well. This helps them to make brisk progress in other subjects.

Overall standards are considerably higher than the national average by the end of Year 6 and have been for several years. The school's results in national tests places them in the top 20% of all schools in reading, writing and mathematics in Key Stage 1 and in English at Key Stage 2.... Standards in mathematics by the end of Key Stage 2 are not quite as high as in English.

Teaching is excellent over time. Teachers plan highly appropriate levels of work. This ensures that pupils make rapid progress in a range of subjects.

However on occasion, teaching assistants are not used to their full extent at the beginning of mathematics lessons. Behaviour and safety are outstanding. All pupils feel very safe in the school.

They have excellent relationships with each other and the adults around them. Marking by teachers and self-checks by pupils are particularly effective in writing. There is outstanding provision for a wide range of subjects and activities provided for pupils.

This includes high quality provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The headteacher is highly motivating and has set high goals for each pupil. The staff overwhelmingly supports her vision.

Since the previous inspection, the school has prospered immensely under this dynamic leadership. The governing body gives excellent support to the school and helps it to maintain outstanding performance in all aspects of its work, including teaching and pupils' achievement since the previous inspection.
