Ofsted Report

Our latest Ofsted inspection was 20th-21st March 2013.  The school was judged as 'Good' overall with 'Outstanding' Leadership and Management and evidence of 'Outstanding' teaching, progress and attitudes to learning.

Ofsted has found that:

‘Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding is at the heart of the school, with evidence in all lessons, at breaks and assemblies. Relationships are warm, friendly and supportive.’

‘Parents make a valuable contribution by supporting their children, as well as helping the school by giving time and supporting events, often run by the Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA).’

‘The curriculum is engaging and well planned to meet the needs and interests of the pupils: it provides pupils with rich and varied opportunities to excite and encourage them to broaden their horizons within a secure learning environment. All pupils enjoy school and take part in lessons enthusiastically.’

‘Teamwork throughout the school is excellent. Teachers work together very constructively with support staff to ensure provision for the pupils they are working with is of a good quality. Teaching is at least good and there are an increasing number of outstanding lessons.’

‘Pupils are enthusiastic about learning and work hard. Their behaviour is usually good and sometimes outstanding. They are considerate to each other, and have a strong moral code.’
