What Ofsted says about our school
Here are a selection of comments from our latest Ofsted inspection (March 2010). To read the full report click here. You can visit the school’s page on the Ofsted website by clicking on the banner at the bottom of this (or any other) page.
A key factor in pupils’ good achievement is the strong priority placed on the care, support and guidance of pupils. As a result, pupils feel safe, well cared for and valued. Excellent relationships at all levels and pupils’ good behaviour promote a happy and friendly atmosphere. Pupils work hard and their positive and welcoming attitudes contribute to the great sense of purpose throughout the school.
This is a good school which has some exceptional features.
One parental quote that echoedd the views of many said, “It’s a great school with an excellent Headteacher.”
Teachers cultivate pupils’ enjoyment in learning by providing interesting lessons.
Pupils are sensitive to the needs of others and the strong community ethos enables pupils of all backgrounds to get on well together.
Pupils are very proud of their school.
New technology and practical resources are used well to make lessons interesting.
The school has an excellent relationship with parents, who greatly appreciate the school’s efforts to involve them in their children’s education.
When evaluating the provision in the Early Years Foundation Stage children settle quickly in a safe, secure and very welcoming environment.
