"This is an oustanding school. It makes a considerable difference to the lives of the young people in its care. The very large majority of parents and carers who responded to the inspection survey are highly supportive of its work.

"Despite significant changes in staffing and a dip in attainment and pupils' achievement two years ago, the school has recovered its past levels of outstanding performance in key areas. Children enter the Nursery with basic skills that vary year-on-year but are overall below those typical for their age. They make excellent progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage because of the outstanding provision, welfare arrangements and leadership and management there. Attainment by the time pupils leave the school in Year 6 is high and learning and progress across Key Stages 1 and 2 are good. Progress for pupils with special eduicational needs and/or disabilities is outstanding, due to the additional support they recieve."
