Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school School leaders have created a culture of high expectations for pupils and staff and this is why achievement is so high. The quality of teaching, learning and assessment is outstanding. As a result, pupils are extremely well prepared for the next stage of their education.

Pupils' attainment is exceptionally high and this has been the case for many years. All groups of pupils achieve well across the school. Disadvantaged pupils, those who have special educational needs and the most able make rapid progress.

Outstanding provision in the early years enables children to make excellent progress so that they are well placed to cope with ...the demands of the curriculum in Year 1. The provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development lies at the heart of the school and successfully promotes pupils' personal development in its widest sense. The curriculum enhances pupils' learning extremely well.

It embraces cultural and sporting activities as well as a strong emphasis on reading, writing and mathematics. It is enriched by trips and visitors to school. A wide range of after-school clubs support pupils' emotional and social development.

Pupils' display exemplary behaviour during lessons. They listen attentively and engage fully in all activities. This positive attitude to learning is a major reason why pupils are achieving so well.

Subject leaders check pupils' progress closely and provide carefully planned support to develop teachers' skills and subject knowledge. They take swift action where necessary to sustain high levels of achievement. For example, even though recent action to sustain boys' interest in writing has proved successful, leaders are acutely aware that more can be done.

Governors have played a significant part in the development of the school. They are well informed and hold senior leaders to account by checking the work of the school very thoroughly.
