Together everyone achieves more
- Pupils make good progress and achieve well. By the end of Year 6, they reach above average standards in reading, writing and mathematics.
- Teaching is good and an increasing proportion is outstanding. Teachers plan activities that interest and challenge most pupils. They give good written and spoken advice on how to improve further.
- Pupils from different groups, including disabled pupils, those who have special educational needs and those who receive the pupil premium funding, make good progress because skilled staff understand their needs and support them very well.
- Pupils’ behaviour is outstanding. Pupils feel very safe and show exceptionally positive attitudes to learning. They use their initiative to help others and are excellent role models for the infants in the neighbouring school.
- There is a powerful culture of mutual respect and success for all. Pupils enjoy a varied and stimulating learning experience, inspired by an interesting range of topics and themes. This helps to motivate them and contributes strongly to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
- Leadership is outstanding. School leaders work very closely together as a team to improve the quality of teaching and learning continually. Their regular checks on learning prompt swift actions to coach and support staff, driving up the proportion of outstanding teaching in the school. Staff and parental support for the acting headteacher is unanimously positive and praiseworthy.
- Governors are knowledgeable and know the school extremely well. They provide high levels of support and challenge, ensuring that the school continues to improve rapidly.
