Our most recent inspection took place in May 2019. This was a 1 day inspection as we were judged as a GOOD school in the previous inspection.

OFTSED stated that: “This school continues to be good. The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.” Inspection Report – May 2019

A few key points from the May 2019 report are:

“The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.

 One comment made by a pupil represents the voices of many pupils, parents and carers: ‘No matter what, they always support you.’

 The development and support offered to pupils is raising the aspiration of all to reach higher standards.

 ..pupils are excited about their learning and want to come to school regularly..

 Pupils behave well, feel safe and unreservedly identify an adult who can help them if they have any difficulties.

 The pastoral team provides good support for pupils.

 The care for pupils provided by the strong pastoral team is effective. This team ensures that pupils and their families receive the support they need at the right time.

 Attitudes to school life are built on mutual trust and pupils told me that they feel safe.

 Pupils talk confidently about what they have learned and how they have improved their work.

 governors have a good understanding of the school’s strengths and areas for improvement.

 Across the foundation subjects, pupils experience a broad, themed curriculum.

 The range of educational visits, visitors and experiences complement the topics and provide rich stimuli for pupils to talk and write about.

 Pupils want to come to school and attendance is good…pupils do not want to miss out on the learning and extra-curricular opportunities provided by the school, such as the range of sporting opportunities and extra-curricular clubs available.”
