'Teaching and learning are outstanding. Dynamic teaching is underpinned by excellent relationships to make lessons enjoyable for pupils and staff alike. They work closely together with a strong sense of collaboration and discovery. Teachers skilfully interweave work in numeracy and literacy with pupils' everyday experiences. The use of a wide range of resources and technology such as interactive whiteboards serves to focus and stimulate pupils' attention. This makes lessons challenging. The quality of teaching in the Foundation Stage creates an excellent start for the pupils' education. The curriculum is expertly planned.
