Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Children make a good start to their school life in the very caring and stimulating Early Years Foundation Stage. Pupils throughout school make increasingly rapid progress from their low starting points and attain broadly average standards in reading, writing and mathematics by the time they leave Year 6. High proportions of pupils are making better progress than similar pupils nationally.

Teaching is of a consistently high quality. All teachers and teaching assistants have high expectations of pupils and grasp every opportunity to ensure work meets their particular needs and interests. Staff know pupils exceptionally well and val...ue them as individuals.

Every opportunity is taken to develop and celebrate pupils' personal, as well as academic, skills. This helps all pupils to flourish in a highly creative and purposeful learning environment. As a result pupils behave outstandingly well, display excellent attitudes to learning and know how to stay safe.

Their eagerness to learn is reflected in their average and improving attendance. The outstanding curriculum is exceptionally rich and varied. It provides many memorable experiences for pupils to explore and investigate the world around them.

It provides excellent opportunities for pupils to develop skills in music, sport and the arts. The Forest School in the school grounds is an exciting and magical place to learn. The highly inspiring headteacher, ably supported by the excellent deputy headteacher, has ensured that the outstanding practice seen at the last inspection has been sustained and indeed improved.

The headteacher's drive and determination to continually improve the school and make sure the needs of pupils are at the heart of all the school does is fully supported by all the staff. The school has excellent relationships with parents and the wider community. Governors provide very high quality support and challenge in holding the school to account.

As a result the school is always striving to make further improvements and to be the very best it can be.

Information about this school

This school is much smaller than the average-sized primary school. Almost all pupils are from White British backgrounds.

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

In this school there are no children from service families. The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics. The school offers a childcare Nursery, breakfast, after school and holiday club, which are subject to a separate inspection.
