Inspections

ofsted

Our school was last inspected by Ofsted in September 2018.

We were delighted to be rated ‘outstanding’. Some comments from the report include:

  • The overall effectiveness of the school remains outstanding.
  • 83% of pupils attaining the expected standards in reading, writing and mathematics, compared to 64% of pupils nationally. A higher-than-average proportion of pupils also attained at the higher standards.
  • Outcomes in the phonics screening check at the end of Year 1 are consistently strong. Phonics teaching is strong and gives pupils a firm basis on which to develop their reading and writing skills.
  • Evidence in pupils’ books shows that current pupils are becoming increasingly effective at explaining their mathematical reasoning and solving mathematical problems.
  •  You have a proven track record of developing staff so that their teaching is of the highest standard.
  •  Almost all parents who responded to Parent View felt that their children were safe and happy.
  • There is an effective culture of safeguarding within the school. Safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose.
