Celebrating our Good Ofsted Report
I am pleased to say that the Ofsted report is now on our website. You will be delighted to hear that we are a good school in all areas.
Ofsted says that:
The school is a very happy, friendly and calm place in which to learn and work. Pupils are polite to one another and their horizons are widened through the good opportunities they are given to take responsibility.
Teaching is good with some that is outstanding. Good classroom management, coupled with teachers’ high expectation of work and behaviour, ensures that teaching takes place in a purposeful and calm learning atmosphere. Gaps in attainment are narrowing quickly throughout the school. Teaching assistants are deployed well.
Children in early years make good progress and the children in Reception class benefit from inspiring and well planned activities.
Pupils throughout the school talk positively about how they enjoy lessons and they describe their progress they have made and talk with pride about their work. Reading is a strength.
The school’s provision for cultural development is very strong and pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted very effectively.
Leaders, including governors are very committed to ensure that the school is inclusive. Effective leadership has led to an improving school. Parents are positive about the school and say their children work well.
