We have now received our full Ofsted report which we are delighted to share with you. Overall we were graded as GOOD. Here are a few highlights
'The headteacher, ably supported by the deputy headteacher, has a resolute determination to improve the achievement of all pupils. She has developed a school which is in the heart of its community. Partnerships with parents are outstanding.'
'Those disadvantaged pupils who receive the pupil premium funding, those who are disabled, and those who have special educational needs receive support in small groups. Pupil premium funding is also used to support pupils’ wider development in sports and music for example. As a result, pupils’ achievement is good and gaps between disadvantaged pupils and their classmates are closing. This exemplifies the school’s strong commitment to providing equality of opportunity and tackling any discrimination.'
'The school’s work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding. Pupils say they feel safe in school and parents overwhelmingly agree that their children are kept safe. Pupils are confident that any of their worries or concerns will be swiftly sorted out.'
'Teaching is good overall across the school and as a result pupils make good progress from their different starting points. Relationships between pupils and adults are a strength and enable pupils to learn in an environment which encourages a love of learning. As a result pupils are confident and enthusiastic learners, keen to do their best.'
'The results of the phonics check in Year 1 show that an above-average proportion of pupils achieved this. The teaching of phonics (letters and the sounds they make) is systematic and builds well on their understanding.'
