What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

Leaders and staff have an unwavering determination to provide the very best experiences for all pupils. They have thought carefully about what they want pupils to know, do and remember across all subjects.

The curriculum is well sequenced and helps pupils to develop detailed knowledge and understanding over time. For example, in geography, pupils used digital maps to compare landscapes in different countries. Children in the early years become curious and confident explorers of the world around them.

Teachers help them to build deep knowledge in all areas of learning.

Teachers have expert subject and pedagogical knowledge. This is because leaders provide them with high-quality training and professional development opportunities.

Teachers check carefully pupils' understanding to make sure they fully secure what they have learned before moving on to more complex work. Pupils build on their fluency throughout the curriculum. For example, in mathematics, children in the early years practised counting forwards and backwards, which helped them to understand addition and subtraction.

Pupils in Year 4 applied accurate knowledge of multiplication when calculating factors of a number.

Teachers promote a love of reading throughout the school. Leaders ensure that staff teach early reading effectively.

In early years, children are taught to follow routines and instructions, which they respond to responsively.

Leaders give first-rate care and thought to pupils' personal development. Pupils are taught about different faiths, beliefs and lifestyles.

They understand that discrimination is not tolerated at school. Pupils are very accepting of each other and any differences between them. Leaders ensure that visits are well planned to encourage pupils to understand about other cultures.

For example, Year 5 pupils visited a bakery and market in France. Pupils eagerly take on leadership responsibilities. For example, they represent their peers on the school council, or as playground buddies.

Teachers encourage pupils to manage any disagreements which may occur.

Those responsible for governance at the trust and at local levels are highly experienced. They offer considered support and robust challenge to leaders and staff.

As a result, leadership across the school is extremely effective. Leaders have embedded a remarkable sense of togetherness and teamwork. Staff spoke about the school being a community where leaders empower everyone.

They appreciated that leaders are always considerate of well-being. Leaders manage workload effectively. Teachers at the start of their careers felt incredibly well supported.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.Leaders have created a caring environment where they prioritise pupils' welfare and safety. Staff understand that safeguarding is everyone's responsibility.

They know the pupils and families exceptionally well. Clear processes are in place so that staff know how to identify and report safeguarding concerns. Leaders are relentless in working proactively with external agencies in making sure pupils and families receive timely help.

Pupils are taught about keeping safe through the curriculum. For example, children in the early years were taught about firework safety during Bonfire Night. The school is aware of risks in the local area and prepares pupils well for staying safe when out in the community.
