It is with great delight that we are now able to share our Ofsted report, which was conducted at school on the 3rd and 4th of October 2023.  The inspectors judged the school to be 'Good' in all areas, which is a fantastic achievement.

The inspectors noted the following areas of strength in our school: 

  • Relationships are strong and respectful, both between pupils themselves, and between pupils and adults. 

  • Pupils understand that leaders want them to do well. They enjoy their lessons and try hard with their work. There is a newly detailed, broad and interesting curriculum in place with a focus on basic skills. Pupils are keen to learn and participate well in lessons. 

  • Well-established routines and high expectations support learning effectively. 

  • The curriculum is enhanced by a wide extra-curricular offer that includes, for example, music and physical education (PE), both delivered by specialists. Pupils appreciate and access these wider opportunities. 

  • Reading is a priority for the school. Children in Reception and pupils in Years 1 and 2 enjoy daily phonics sessions, using the school’s chosen approach. These sessions are delivered by skilled, well-trained adults. 

  • …As pupils become more confident and fluent, they develop a love of reading, which they use throughout the other areas of the curriculum. 

  • All pupils get the opportunity to practise what they need to learn new skills. Consequently, over time, pupils achieve well. 

  • Children in early years benefit from a well-planned, appropriate curriculum that considers how young children learn best. 

  • …Children are being well prepared for Year 1. 

  • Opportunities to develop pupils’ wider cultural development are included in the curriculum. 

  • Pupils understand similarities and differences and demonstrate care for one other. 

  • Pupils’ health and well-being are a high priority. 

Thank you to all the parents who took the time to complete the Parent View surveys to inform the inspectors' decision-making process.
