Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

Outstanding leadership has ensured that the school has maintained outstanding academic success, at the end of Year2 and Year 6, over the five years since the previous inspection. Robust checking of teachers' work and successful additions to the teaching team have improved teaching quality and leadership in the school. They have also made a significant contribution to pupils' excellent academic achievement and personal development.

Governors support the school exceptionally well. Pupils conduct in lessons and around the school is exemplary, as are their attitudes to learning. They say, 'We can't get a better school than this'.
They feel completely safe in school and their attendance is consistently above average. Outstanding teaching overall means that expectations are very high and challenging work brings the best out of pupils. Sometimes, feedback to pupils could be clearer.

Standards at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 are well above average in reading, writing and mathematics and pupils make excellent progress from Year 1 to Year 6. In 2014, the proportions of pupils reaching the highest possible standards in writing and mathematics at the end of Year 6 was most impressive, compared with schools nationally, and there was some excellent achievement in other subjects. Children in the early years (Reception) class get off to a good start, but not an outstanding one, because over time the number making better-than-expected progress, given their starting points, could have been better.

The school's relationships with parents is exceptionally strong.

Information about this school

This is an average-sized primary school in which almost all pupils are White British. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by pupil premium funding is very low when compared with schools nationally.

The pupil premium is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those who are looked after by the local authority. A very small proportion of pupils is supported by school action only. The proportion of pupils supported by school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is below average.

The school meets current floor standards which are the minimum government expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6. Before and after-school care is provided on site. This provision, entitled Kids United, is not managed by the governing body and receives a separate inspection and a separate report, which is available on the Ofsted website.
