Ofsted last visited us in March 2017 and we were delighted to be judged as 'Good' in all areas. Here are some of the many comments...
"The friendly, caring ethos ensures that pupils enjoy coming to school. "
"The curriculum is based on lively themes that interest pupils and make learning fun."
"You also provide a range of opportunities for parents to find out more about their children’s learning, so they can get involved in school or help at home."
"There is a clear focus on ensuring that pupils make good progress during their time at the school."
"Pupils’ behaviour is good, both in lessons and at other times of the school day. As a result, there are very few recorded incidents of poor or unacceptable behaviour."
"You make sure all absences are followed up thoroughly and provide support to families where pupils need to improve their attendance."
"The safety and well-being of pupils and their families is a high priority for all staff and governors at the school."
"The governing body has a wide range of experience and valuable skills that the school can draw on."
"Parents are very supportive of the school and say it is a safe and happy place their children enjoy attending."
"Support for vulnerable pupils is closely focused on the individual needs of the pupils and their families."
"Although the proportion of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities is broadly average, there are a number of pupils with complex needs who are taught in the specialised learning unit within the school. These pupils are not able to access the national curriculum, but are making good progress towards their individual learning targets."
"Good teaching is maintaining brisk rates of progress."
"The interesting curriculum ensures that all pupils are engaged and motivated; boys, in particular, told me they enjoyed the space and pirate themes and one was looking forward to the day when they will all dress up as pirates ‘in stripy tee-shirts and everything!"
