This is an outstanding school. The management of the school is very strong.
All leaders, including the headteacher and senior staff, are highly effective. They are well supported by the governing body. From their starting points, children make excellent progress in both English and mathematics.
Pupils' writing is a particular strength of the school. Outstanding teaching over time ensures that pupils are able to learn very well. Lessons are carefully planned and delivered to ensure that teaching takes into account all pupils' learning needs.
It also makes sure that pupils are always ready to learn and enjoy school. The behaviour of pupils is outstandin...g, both in lessons and around the school. Pupils support each other well and respect each other's backgrounds.
They believe that the school is a very safe place and that it cares for their needs very well. In lessons, teachers make sure that pupils understand their work and are able to make rapid progress. However, pupils' understanding of what they need to do next to improve is better in English than in mathematics.
Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is very strong. Pupils from a range of different backgrounds are able to celebrate their cultures and to learn from each other. They are also given opportunities to enhance their social skills, gain moral values and understand different religions and cultures.
The very high number of pupils who speak English as an additional language, together with pupils who enter the school at different points in their education, receive very high- quality support and make outstanding progress. The range of subjects and activities is imaginatively planned and has been carefully reviewed to match pupils' needs and interests. A strong feature is the teaching of communication skills to help pupils to learn English, particularly those for whom English is an additional language.
