The inspectors thought that:
"The school makes effective provision for newly qualified teachers. The initial induction procedures are comprehensive, and the structured programme of continuing professional development is strong."
"The curriculum is particular effective in promoting fundamental British values, and in contributing to pupils' good behavior, and excellent spiritual, moral, social and cultural development."
"The teaching of grammar, punctuation and spelling across the school is good."
"The teaching of reading is good across the school, in line with the pupils' improving knowledge, understanding and use of phonics. Pupils in Years 2 and 6 read fluently to inspectors. These pupils used their knowledge of phonics to read unknown words correctly, and were able to use their understanding to answer difficult questions about the text."
"The school's work to promote pupils' personal development and welfare is outstanding."
"Pupils are exceptionally uplifted in talking about the 'House' system. They enjoy the 'House' days, and opportunities to collaborate in fun activities with pupils from different years across the school. These experiences help to build teamwork, and foster a sense of community and inclusivity that pervades the school."
"Pupils are exceptionally aware of the implications of British values such as honesty, trust and equality."
"Senior leaders and the Parental Involvement Worker provide outstanding support for individual pupils and families when they are at their most vulnerable."
