Ofsted Report

Our latest Ofsted report [published January 2017] maintained our status as a good school. The report identified many strengths, including:

The teaching of reading is strength across school. Phonics results show that the proportion of pupils achieving the expected standard by the end of Year 1 is above national average”.

By the end of Years 2 and 6, the proportion of pupils meeting expected standards are above national averages in reading and mathematics”.

“A  number of the pupils also have special educational needs and/or disabilities. The skilled group of teaching assistants provides good support for them. The school ensures that these pupils are fully included in class work”.

Safeguarding is effective. Leaders, including governors, ensure that the appropriate checks for staff recruitment and volunteers are robust. All staff and governors use the latest government requirements about keeping children safe. Staff are vigilant in reporting any concerns”.
