Ofsted & Parent View

In April 2015, we were visited by Ofsted.  You can view the Ofsted Inspection Report April 2015.  Key highlights include:

"The headteacher provides clear and rigorous leadership.  He is well supported by the leadership team together with a highly effective governing body and trust.  As a result standards have risen rapidly."

"the vast majority of pupils now make good progress and achieve well."

"The overall quality of teaching is good.  Teachers' subject knowledge is good.  Teaching assistants make a good contribution to learning.  Marking and feedback are used well to help pupils improve their work."

"Pupils usually have good attitudes to learning.  This makes a good contribution to achievement.  Pupils are well behaved at break and lunchtimes; they feel and are kept safe."

"Provision in the early years is good.  Children make good progress and enjoy their learning."

"All staff are given detailed and clear information about how to improve their teaching.  Teachers reflect well on how to improve their practice."

"The governing body makes a very strong contribution to leadership.  Governors ensure the school makes effective use of the experts available from the trust.  They hold leaders stringently to account for the work of the school."
