2017 Ofsted report

Here are some of the many comments that the inspectors made about our school:

  • ‘As a result of consistently good teaching and assessment, pupils learn quickly and apply their skills across all subjects.’
  • ‘The determined and resilient headteacher has been unwavering in his determination to eradicate any underperformance and ensure an excellent standard of education for pupils in this school. Well supported by an experienced and skilled deputy headteacher, he has put into place actions which are continuing to transform and improve the quality of teaching across the school.’
  • The headteacher’s implacable determination that all pupils will achieve their full potential, regardless of any difficulties they face, is reflected in the high expectations that teachers have for their pupils and pupils have for themselves. As a consequence, pupils are now making rapid progress and developing a confident approach to learning. There is an ambition and determination to improve all aspects of school life, including from leaders, teachers and dedicated, knowledgeable governors.’
  • ‘Children in Early Years make a solid start to their learning. They work happily and co-operatively together, making strong progress.’
  • ‘Outcomes for pupils are good. Current pupils make strong progress from their individual starting points. Key Stage 1 pupils’ skills and attainment are much improved since the previous inspection.’
  • ‘The behaviour of the pupils is good. They have respect and care for each other, displaying good manners. Pupils’ personal development and welfare, including their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development are outstanding.’
  • The arrangements for safeguarding are effective. The school has a tangible ethos that is positive and caring, putting the welfare and well-being of each pupil at the heart of what it does.’
