Here’s just some of what the inspection team had to say about us:

“The headteachers, ably supported by other leaders and managers, have been highly effective in raising achievement and improving teaching."

A particular strength throughout the school is the way teachers provide verbal advice and feedback to pupils to help move their learning on."

“Teaching is outstanding the Early Years Foundation Stage. Children learn in an exciting environment, rich with pictures and print."

"Pupils are polite and helpful and their attitudes towards learning help them to make good progress. The school is a harmonious community and relationships between pupils and between pupils and staff are good."  

"The school does a great deal to raise pupils' aspirations and expand their horizons through exciting topics, educational visits and residential trips. It strongly promotes pupil's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and provides a variety of events to the celebrate their cultural diversity."

"The leadership of the Early Years Foundation Stage is especially strong. Thorough systems are in place for tracking children's progress and arrangements for keeping parents and carers informed."

“Pupils say they feel safe in school and learn about how to keep safe including when using the internet."

“The governors have been central to the school's work to build a trusting relationship with parents and carers. They bring a wealth of relevant expertise to their roles and work closely with school leaders and staff."

“The school provides workshops for parents and carers in how to support their children's learning in reading, phonics and mathematics. The home-school worker runs support groups for families who need particular help."

“Leaders focus relentlessly on improving teaching and learning. There are regular detailed checks on teachers' work and excellent opportunities for them to undertake training."

“Pupils listen carefully, eagerly contribute their ideas and take part animatedly in discussions. Pupils follow teachers' instructions readily and usually apply themselves well to their work.”
