Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
- Inspirational leadership from the executive headteacher and head of school, who are ably supported by a dedicated team of teachers and governors, has created an exceptional learning environment where all pupils can flourish. They have led the excellent improvements in all areas of school life since the last inspection.
- Achievement is outstanding and attainment at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 is above the national average. A very high number of pupils make better than expected progress in all subjects.
- Pupils in the Nursery and Reception classes get off to an excellent start in an exciting and purposeful environment.
- Pupils with a disability or special educational needs achieve highly and make outstanding progress in all areas of learning. This is also
- true of pupils in receipt of support through the pupil premium.
- Teachers plan and deliver consistently good or often outstanding lessons with high levels of challenge for all learners. In a very small
- number of lessons, planning is not quite as detailed as the best in the school.
- Teachers new to the school benefit greatly from working in an excellent learning environment. Nevertheless, leaders are aware that there is potential for these teachers to gain even more by working regularly with the school’s very best teachers.
- Pupils have overwhelmingly positive attitudes to learning and this contributes to their excellent progress. They work together exceptionally well feel very safe and are always polite and respectful towards adults and their friends.
