School Inspection Report      –       OFSTED

This is a good school!


  • Pupils achieve well. They make good progress from low starting points to reach average standards in English and mathematics at the end of Year 6.

  • Teaching is good because teachers are keen to continually improve their practice. Senior leaders accurately identify what will help teachers improve and then provide highly effective support to ensure that happens.

  • Teachers accurately match activities to the needs of different learners so pupils make good progress in lessons.

  • Quality books are at the heart of the curriculum and this exposure to such engaging texts promotes a strong love of reading.

  • Pupils have extremely positive attitudes to learning. They are actively involved in lessons and think carefully about how to improve their own work.

  • The diverse nature of the school community is taken into account when planning what topics to study so that learning is really relevant to pupils’ life experiences.

  • The governors share the headteacher’s drive and ambition for the school and support her well in realising ambitious plans for development.

  • Pupils from a range of different groups make equally good progress because leaders think carefully about how to meet individual needs, consulting outside experts where appropriate.
