Ofsted Inspection

Ofsted logo

Our last Ofsted inspection was in May 2015 when we were delighted to be judged as outstanding in all areas.

Some quotes from the inspection report were:

  • Children get an exceptionally good start to school life in the Reception classes.
  • Pupils make rapid progress as they move through the school. Standards [...] are well above average by the time they leave Key Stage 2.
  • Teachers are enthusiastic and have excellent subject knowledge.
  • Other adults, such as teaching assistants, who work alongside teachers are well trained and support pupils’ learning very effectively.
  • Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. They are extremely helpful and polite to adults and each other.
  • Pupils are extremely enthusiastic about their learning and are keen to do well.
  • Pupils feel totally safe in school. They rightly attribute this to the care and attention of staff who ensure their safety and well being.
  • Under the calm, purposeful leadership of the headteacher, the quality of teaching has improved since the previous inspection and this has driven up standards.
  • The school’s values of respect, honesty, empathy, trustworthiness, kindness and support underpin all it does.
