Ofsted Inspection

Our most recent inspection was September 2012. The full report can be downloaded. Here is how the summary page reads:

This is a good school.

■ Progress is good across the school. Since the last inspection the number of pupils making and exceeding expected progress over time has risen significantly.
■ The majority of pupils enjoy reading and read often and widely.
■ Disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs and those for whom the pupil premium provides support, achieve exceptionally well.
■ Teaching and learning are good overall. In most lessons teachers have high expectations of what they want pupils to achieve. Encouragement and praise from adults are a strong feature in all lessons.
■ Pupils are proud of their school. Behaviour is good and pupils collaborate well. Pupils say they enjoy school and feel very safe.
■ The curriculum provides a rich range of experiences which promotes pupilsí spiritual, social, moral and cultural development well.
■ Senior leaders and governors have successfully raised the quality of teaching and pupilsí achievement. Progress is rising and closer monitoring of teaching is leading to more consistency throughout the school.
It is not yet an outstanding school because
■ Teaching is good rather than outstanding with some inconsistencies between classes.
■ Provision for outdoor play in the Early Years Foundation Stage is not as good as the indoor provision.
- See our new early years playground and facilities for how we responded to this last point.
