Ofsted Reports

We had an extremely successful Ofsted Inspection in July 2019. Listed below are some of the things that were said about our provision. Alternatively, read our full report by clicking here.

“..a clear vision for the school that promotes the achievement of every pupil within a caring community, based on the school values. This strong sense of community permeates the school, providing care and support for pupils, their families and staff. “

“In all subjects, this is a school where pupils take pride in their achievement.  Standards across the school are high and by the end of key stage two, pupils leave above the national average in external tests. This shows that they are very well prepared for their next steps in education. They strive to achieve their best, work with purpose and have very positive attitudes to their learning. They behave well and say that bullying hardly ever happens. They have absolute confidence that any issues concerning behaviour will be dealt with fairly and swiftly by adults.”

“Governors are committed, ambitious and determined to see the school do even better.”

“Parents are overwhelmingly positive about all that the school offers their children.”

“Safeguarding has a high priority in school….All parents I spoke to and all who responded to Parent View said that pupils are safe in school, as did all staff who completed their inspection questionnaire.”

"Pupils are courteous. They listen to each other, respect each other’s ideas and work very well together. They regulate their own behaviour and, if they find behaviour is slipping, they remind others of the expectations in the school. Pupils are determined to apply themselves to their tasks to ensure that they work to the best of their abilities"

Our next steps

Our next steps are also clearly identified and match what we felt we needed to focus on next:

The new plans for the curriculum consider the sequencing of learning in order to deepen pupils’ knowledge and understanding, and that these plans are implemented effectively.”

Continue to embed and drive forward the improvements which are already having an impact on pupils’ attainment in reading and in reducing the differences in attainment between boys and girls.”
