Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school. Pupils of all abilities achieve outstandingly well from their starting points in English, mathematics and a wide range of subjects in this highly successful school.

They reach well above average standards by the time they leave. Children in the Reception classes make excellent progress and are very well prepared for Year 1. They are happy, inquisitive and thoughtful.

Those pupils supported by the pupil premium make excellent progress and reach standards close to those of their peers. Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs make similar, excellent progress to other pupils in the school. Pupils benefit from special...ist programmes and interventions to ensure that they achieve as well as they can.

Pupils' reading is wide and frequent within a school culture that strongly encourages it. Writing standards are high with pupils coached to fluent expression appropriate to a broad range of contexts. Whilst pupils are increasingly confident in their use of information and communication technology (ICT), there is potential to provide even greater opportunities for pupils to advance their learning via new technologies.

Teaching is outstanding. Highly effective teachers and teaching assistant teams create a strong learning culture with high expectations for the achievement of all pupils in every classroom. Pupils are extremely well behaved and feel very safe.

They relish their many opportunities for responsibilities in the school and develop as confident individuals. The headteacher and deputy headteacher provide inspirational leadership. Their crystal clear sense of purpose allied to incisive direction, has driven exceptionally rapid improvement in teaching and achievement in the school.

Leaders receive excellent support from a highly-talented, buoyant staff and a committed governing body that is not afraid to take decisive action when required. As a result, the rapid improvement in the school is being securely sustained. Pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are fostered exceptionally well within a caring and aspirational community.
