Our school was last inspected in November 2014.
Ofsted assessed us as a GOOD SCHOOL.
Most pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. From starting points below typical levels, they reach standards in line with those found nationally.
The headteacher, ably supported by senior leaders and the governors, has successfully led the drive to improve the quality of teaching and pupils’ achievement.
Leaders check on the quality of teaching and learning closely and standards have improved as a result. Governors regularly check on pupils’ progress and challenge leaders to secure the best outcomes for pupils.
Pupils behave well, enjoy coming to school and attend regularly. They are polite and courteous and manage their behaviour with maturity.
Pupils say that they feel safe and parents agree that the school is a safe and secure place for their children.
Teaching is consistently good and sometimes outstanding. Teachers have high expectations and plan interesting lessons based on a detailed knowledge of each pupil’s progress.
Governors know the school well. They make sure that the curriculum provides a broad set of learning experiences which promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and that pupils develop a sound understanding of traditional British values.
Provision in the early years is good. Skilful teaching and caring staff ensure that children are happy, learn well and make good progress.
