Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is an outstanding school. Children get off to an excellent start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Many pupils, year on year, make better than expected progress. Attainment in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6 is well above average. Much of the teaching in all classes is outstanding. It is never less than good. Although the curriculum engages pupils very well and promotes outstanding achievement overall, there is scope for the potential of most able pupils to be realised even further in subjects other than English and mathematics. Senior leaders and subject managers set the highest expectations for themselves and others. They check and evaluate the school’s work thoroughly. The governing body is highly effective in the way it challenges the school and helps to drive forward improvement in teaching and pupils’ achievement. Pupils enjoy school immensely. Their attitudes to learning are exceptionally good, as is their general behaviour. They feel safe at all times and share trusting relationships with adults and each other.
