Key findings

This is an outstanding school which fully lives up to its mission to provide 'opportunity, inspiration and celebration' for its pupils and their families.

Its highly inclusive approach ensures that all pupils work well together and respect each other. The overwhelming majority of the parents and carers agree that the school provides an exceptional learning environment for their children. Pupils' achievement is outstanding.

When children join the Early Years Foundation Stage, they make rapid progress and this is sustained as they move through the school. Consequently, by the end of Year 6, all groups of pupils have levels of attainment that are significantly above average. Pupils in the Ark and... Study make very good progress from their starting points as a result of carefully planned lessons that are well taught.

Pupils' integration into mainstream classes and lessons is well managed and all pupils gain valuable experience from the sessions. Excellent behaviour in and out of lessons, very positive attitudes to learning and their consideration for each other contribute to pupils' outstanding behaviour. Pupils say they feel safe and secure; parents and carers agree and inspectors endorse these views.

Outstanding teaching ensures pupils are motivated to learn. The imaginative and stimulating curriculum further enhances pupils' enjoyment and leads to their high achievement, including in reading. Accurate assessment systems allow teachers to plan lessons that match pupils' needs effectively, although this could be further improved with a greater consistency of approach across the key stages.

The drive and commitment of leaders and managers have ensured that high levels of achievement for all pupils have been sustained over time. The move to three forms of entry has been 'seamless' according to many parents and carers. The promotion of pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding.

Information about the school

The school is much larger than the average-size primary and the number of pupils on roll is rising. The school increased to three forms of entry in 2009 and there are now three classes of pupils from Reception to Year 3. A new wing has been added to the school to accommodate the extra pupils.

Approximately half of the pupils are of White British heritage. The remainder are from a variety of minority ethnic groups, the largest proportion being of Other White heritage. The proportion of pupils who are at the early stages of learning English is small but rising, especially in the Early Years Foundation Stage as the school's catchment area widens with the larger intake.

The proportion of pupils believed to be eligible for free school meals is well below the national average. The school has a local authority, additionally-resourced provision for 16 pupils with language and communication difficulties, known as the Ark and Study. The school has the Artsmark Gold award in recognition of its contribution to the performing arts.

The school has its own breakfast club managed by the governing body. There is a separate provision that provides wrap-around care, run by private providers, which was not subject to this inspection. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress.
