Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is an outstanding school The headteacher, ably supported by governors and senior leaders, has created a school where children are able to learn and grow in an environment that stimulates and challenges them. Skilled and dedicated senior and middle leaders ensure that pupils make exceptional progress throughout their time in school. Leaders work together extremely well. They are a cohesive team that works tirelessly to ensure that no child falls behind. Pupils flourish in this nurturing environment. All staff know the pupils as individuals and care for them exceptionally well. As a result, pupils feel safe to learn and take risks. The curriculum is rich and varied, with a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. These provide pupils with high-quality experiences. Leaders are not complacent. They believe that the curriculum remains a work in progress, and they continue to make well-considered changes to meet the needs of their pupils. The behaviour of pupils is exceptional. They are polite, kind and respectful. Pupils get off to a very strong start in early years and make outstanding progress from their starting points. This is because leadership and teaching are outstanding. Partnership with parents is a significant strength of the school. The difference this makes in the pupils’ learning cannot be understated. Parents attend workshops, assemblies and events in extremely high numbers. They told inspectors that they value all the information, help and support they receive from the school. Leaders ensure that teaching is consistently effective in all year groups. Teachers plan and pitch their lessons to challenge pupils. They are able to do this through the use of high-quality assessment. Then they can ensure that pupils from different starting points are able to make equally strong progress. Teachers provide highly effective support for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). As a result, these pupils make very good progress. Senior leaders provide staff with training that is well targeted and that makes a difference. There is a direct correlation between this staff development and the sustained improvement in outcomes for pupils. The school provides training and support for other schools, using its expertise in areas such as Forest Schools, where children learn in the outdoors, to improve outcomes for children across the local area.
