Key Findings from Our Latest Ofsted Report

  • This is an outstanding school. The school’s drive for further improvement is consistent and constant so that since the time of the previous inspection, progress has accelerated rapidly and pupils’ attainment in reading, writing and mathematics has improved each year. Because the school promotes their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very well, pupils grow in self-confidence and achieve extremely well.
  • Pupils achieve exceptionally well from their very low starting points so that by the end of Key Stage, 1 their attainment is above average in reading, writing and mathematics. Outstanding provision for those pupils who have barriers to learning ensures that there are no significant or consistent differences between the achievements of any groups of pupils.
  • Teaching is outstanding, as teachers use their excellent skills and expertise to plan lessons that successfully enthuse, motivate and meet the interests and learning needs of all pupils extremely well. Occasionally teachers do not ensure that pupils respond to and learn from their verbal or written developmental comments for improvement.
  • Pupils and their parents and carers overwhelmingly confirm inspectors’ findings that pupils feel extremely safe, behave very well and develop exceptionally positive attitudes towards learning.
  • Exemplary leadership at all levels drives a relentless focus on improving all aspects of the school’s work. Leaders rigorously and successfully monitor the quality of teaching and its contribution to pupils’ progress and set challenging improvement targets. Leaders develop teachers’ skills through effective monitoring and feedback, coaching and sharing of best practice. Termly pupil progress meetings held with all teachers and senior leaders ensure that they are accountable for the progress of every pupil. Leaders ensure that both the indoor and outdoor setting provide a highly stimulating learning environment, and that the curriculum provides pupils with many enjoyable and memorable experiences.
