Inspectors spent two days observing children, teaching alongside talking with staff, the parents and governors and concluded that the school should retain its 'outstanding judgement.

The report, which is available on the Ofsted website highlights many of the strengths of the school including the priority which is placed on children learning to read and the exceptional progress children make in mathematics.

It states how well staff in the school understand each child’s strengths and interests and that every step in children’s learning is clearly thought through in a curriculum which “sparkles with exciting opportunities in all areas of learning".
