Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

The headteacher provides inspiring leadership and exceptional drive, which result in the school's highly positive ethos. In this, she is extremely well supported by the other four senior leaders who together form a cohesive and committed team. Members of the governing body share the leadership's aspirational vision for the school.

Without exception, the teaching and support staff express pride in their membership of the school. Pupils' achievement is outstanding. Pupils make excellent progress in all subjects, and especially in reading and mathematics.

Their attainment in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6 has ...been exceptionally high for the last five years. Teaching is outstanding and results in pupils' excellent learning and progress. Teachers' high expectations lead them to set well-devised learning tasks, providing very good levels of challenge for all groups of pupils, including more able learners and those who are disabled or who have special educational needs.

The school makes outstanding provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, which does much to foster their highly positive and mature attitudes to learning, and excellent behaviour in lessons and around the school. Pupils feel entirely safe at school, and say they enjoy all aspects of school life. Parents and members of staff agree that pupils are completely safe at school.

Pupils emphasise that bullying is rare, and trust staff to sort out any issues that occasionally arise. Leaders are rigorous in checking the quality of teaching and of pupils' learning. They also analyse in detail the data about how well the school is performing.

The resulting information feeds into the school's accurate self-evaluation, which forms the basis of high-quality planning for improvements. The rich range of subjects and topics in the curriculum provide stimulating experiences for pupils and, together with the broad and varied out-of-school programme, promote their academic and personal development extremely well. The school seeks to help parents to support their children's learning.

Parents are extremely positive about the school. Almost all would recommend it to others. The governing body has a particularly good understanding of the school's performance and priorities for improvement.

Governors are entirely supportive of the leadership, but also confident to hold the school fully to account. Inspectors recommend increased opportunities for pupils to reflect on and apply teachers' suggestions to improve their work in writing.

Information about this school

This is a primary school that is much larger than average.

The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for the pupil premium (which provides additional funding to support children in local authority care, children from service families and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals) is well below average. The school currently has no children who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of disabled pupils or those who have special educational needs supported through school action is well below average.

The proportion of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is also well below average. One pupil is currently in receipt of part-time alternative provision in a specialist unit. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.

Following the retirement of the previous headteacher, the deputy headteacher was appointed to the acting post from September 2010 and as the headteacher from March 2011. An external appointment to the role of deputy headteacher was made from September 2011. Among the school's accreditations are the Artsmark (Gold) and Sing Up (Gold) awards.
