Ofsted Reports

Our last inspection was 31 October 2012. Ofsted said…

This is a good school.

  • Pupils make good progress. They read well and their handwriting is neat and legible.
  • Standards in reading, writing and mathematics have gone up significantly over the past two years.
  • The large majority of pupils reach the nationally expected standards in their tests. Each year more and more pupils do better than this.
  • The school is well led and managed. The leadership of teaching is a strength.
  • Teaching is good in every class and sometimes it is outstanding. Lessons are active and fun.
  • Pupils are keen to do well. They work hard and discuss work sensibly with a partner. They work well on their own and in groups.
  • Attendance has gone up each year for the past three years. It is above average. Few pupils arrive late, because they enjoy coming to school.
  • Pupils feel safe. Older pupils take care of younger ones at break and lunchtimes. Pupils are kind to each other and play well together.
  • The curriculum enlivens pupils’ learning. It develops their confidence, awareness and appreciation of art, music and other subjects, and excites their curiosity.
  • The school has improved considerably since the last inspection. School leaders know exactly what the school needs to do to improve further.
  • Governors support and challenge the school to good effect. This school continues to get better.
