Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Under the inspirational leadership of the headteacher, ably supported by her staff and governors, there is a relentless strive to provide the very best for every child at the school. As a result pupils achieve exceptionally well. From the time they enter the school, all pupils make rapid progress in reading, writing and mathematics so that by the time they leave in Year 6, they reach standards that are well above average.

Teaching is consistently good, with much that is outstanding. Teachers check pupils' work regularly and make effective use of the information gathered to plan challenging activities that stretch all pupils in th...eir learning. Skilled teaching assistants and other support staff work in partnership with teachers and make a significant contribution to pupils' outstanding progress.

This includes disabled pupils, those who have special educational needs and the most able. An effective team approach and the sharing of skills by teachers have developed interesting and creative approaches that capture pupils' enthusiasm. Provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding.

Pupils learn to work alongside each other and make strong friendships from an early age. Children in the Nursery and Reception classes play and learn well together in a calm and welcoming environment. By the time they enter Year 1 their development is often higher than that typical for children of the same age.

Behaviour in lessons and around the school is exemplary. Pupils know how to stay safe, are keen to learn and attendance is above average. The school is a very harmonious community built on mutual respect between adults and children.

Parents and carers have a very positive view of the school's work and actively support it in its efforts to continue to raise standards. They would recommend the school to others. The governors care deeply about their community.

They rigorously support the headteacher and hold all leaders to account for their decisions.
