OFSTED

 

The school was last inspected in February 2013. We were judged to be a 'Good' school. Below is a summary from the Ofsted report. 

 

  •  Effective leadership of the Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception children) ensures that teaching is good and children make good progress. Linking letters and sounds (phonics) and developing early writing skills are strengths enabling children to make outstanding progress in literacy.
  •  A steady upward trend in attainment, started in 2009, is continuing. Consequently, standards in reading, writing and mathematics are well above average by the end of Year 2.
  •  Overall, teaching is consistently good across the school. Staff have successfully tackled weaknesses highlighted in the previous inspection. This means that all pupils, including disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs make good progress.
  • Behaviour is good in lessons and around the school. Pupils feel safe because they know staff care about them. Their spiritual, social, moral and cultural development promotes positive attitudes and consideration for others.
  • The headteacher has succeeded in motivating staff to work as a team to improve all aspects of the school’s work. on teaching and pupil where improvements can be made.
  • Governors use their considerable expertise to assist senior staff in the drive for improvement. Their visits mean they know how well the school is doing and contribute to its capacity to improve.
