Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

All pupils achieve extremely well and reach standards that are well above average in English and mathematics. The rates of progress pupils make are more rapid than at the time of the previous inspection. Teaching promotes outstanding learning and progress.

Careful planning and attention to individual needs mean that all pupils thrive and want to learn. Excellent support for disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs ensures that they make very good progress and are fully included in the school. Pupils' behaviour is excellent.

They are polite, considerate and work hard. Older pupils carry out many roles ...and responsibilities and this prepares them well for their future lives. They know and understand how to keep themselves safe.

Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding. They reflect very carefully on different issues and have a very clear understanding of the school's values. School leaders check the quality of teaching and manage performance closely.

Training and advice are provided and, as a result, the quality of teaching and consequently pupils' achievement have improved since the previous inspection. The governing body actively supports the school and challenges school leaders. It knows what needs to be done to sustain the high standards achieved.

Information about this school

The school is larger than most other primary schools. Most pupils are White British with a few coming from a range of minority ethnic backgrounds. Nearly all pupils speak English as their first language.

A below average proportion of pupils are eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for looked after children and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and supported through school action is average. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also average.

Pupils are educated on site. There is no alternative provision off the school site. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

There is a daily before- and after-school club which is run by a private provider and is therefore inspected separately. Since the previous inspection, there has been a change of headteacher and deputy headteacher. The school has recently received a Recognition of Commitment in working towards becoming a Rights Respecting School, an Equalities Award and an Enterprise Award.
