Ofsted

Our most recent visit took place on the 19-20th March 2014. Ofsted noted that:

'Pupils achieve well in reading and mathematics and reach above average standards because lessons are well planned and interesting and teachers set work at the right level for most pupils.'

'Pupils make exceptionally good progress in developing a wide range of writing skills, so that in Year 6 their attainment is much higher than in most schools.'

'Teachers have high expectations of the pupils and constantly challenge them to do their best.'

'Promoting reading, writing and a love of books is at the heart of the school’s successful planning across a range of subjects.'

'Pupils always work hard in lessons. They listen carefully to teachers’ explanations and quickly settle to well-planned tasks.'

'Behaviour is consistently good in lessons and often exemplary. Pupils get on very well with each other and with the adults who teach and care for them. Arrangements to keep pupils safe are good.'

'Leaders and managers check the quality of teaching regularly and provide good support to improve practice where necessary. Governors are well informed and provide challenge to senior leaders to ensure good achievement for all pupils.'
