OFSTED Inspection December 2013 - Rated GOOD!

Our school was recently inspected - December 4th and 5th 2013.  A copy of the report was sent home for all parents and can be accessed via the link on the Ofsted page.

We are really pleased with the report which highlights:

  • pupils feel happy and safe in this very caring and nurturing school.  They behave well in lessons and around the school and demonstrate positive attitudes towards their learning.
  • pupils with special educational needs make good progress owing to high-quality intervention support.
  • Teaching is good.  Questioning is used well in all lessons to develop pupils' understanding and ensure they make good progress.
  • Pupils read widely and avidly.  The school promotes the enjoyment of reading well.
