Ofsted state:

Outcomes for pupils

“A relentless drive to improve outcomes for pupils has been successful. Leaders have secured a rapid improvement over the last three years so that by 2016, at the end of key stage 1, outcomes from all starting points, and for disadvantaged pupils, were above the national average.“

Key aspects of the report for each of the other areas are:


“Leaders have instilled a collective responsibility for pupil outcomes among the staff. They all share the desire to provide every individual with the best possible education.”

“The curriculum meets the Headteacher’s aim for it to be ‘vibrant and exciting with many first-hand experiences that enrich pupils’ lives’. “


“The school has gone above and beyond what is usually expected…”

Quality of teaching, learning and assessment

“Teachers are uncompromising in their desire to support every pupil to succeed.”

Personal development, behaviour and welfare

“Pupils’ learning behaviours are admirable and are enhanced by the high expectations of staff.”

“Teachers are very calm and nurturing, creating a positive learning climate where it is all right to make mistakes and where having a go is valued.”

“Pupils are polite and well-mannered to staff, visitors and each other.”

“Due to the significant efforts and expertise of leaders and staff, pupils with poorer attendance still make good progress by receiving highly focused and targeted support when they are at school.”

Early years provision

“Credible in-school assessment information shows that the vast majority of children…are making fast progress during their time in the early years.”

“High-quality relationships enable children to feel safe and cared for.”
