Information about this school

This is a smaller than average-sized primary school.

In the early years, children are taught full time in a Reception class. The school has no Nursery class. The school serves a community where most pupils are of White British heritage and a very small number of pupils speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs is well below average. The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium (which provides additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and for children who are looked after) is well below average, typically less than five in each year group. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in English and mathematics.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school Pupils achieve exceptionally well academically, personally, physically and creatively. Children get off to a flying start in the early years. They continue to make outstanding progress from their individual starting points so that their attainment is typically well above average by the end of Year 6.

Outstanding teaching enables pupils to make outstanding progress in reading, writing and mathematics. Teachers have high expectations and they plan work skilfully to ensure that all pupils are very clear about what is expected of them. The inspirational leadership by the headteacher, ably supported by a talented deputy and assistant headteacher and skilled senior leadership team, motivates all staff to give of their best for the benefit of the pupils.

This leads to high-quality teaching and outstanding pupils’ achievement. The school community successfully communicates its vision to ‘Cherish & Nurture, Flourish & Aspire’ The governing body is exceptionally well informed, and very effectively challenges all aspects of the school’s work, while remaining highly supportive. The excellent curriculum provides many exciting and memorable experiences, which spark pupils’ enthusiasm for learning.

This contributes very well to their outstanding spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. Pupils become confident, polite, courteous young people. The school’s work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding.

The behaviour of pupils is outstanding and this significantly supports their achievement. Pupils are confident learners who enjoy school and show a strong desire to do well. Occasionally, marking and feedback do not give pupils clear guidance on what they need to do to improve, particularly in mathematics.
