Our most recent Ofsted Inspection was carried out in May 2013.
We were rated Good.
Here is a summary of the Key Findings:
A strong leadership team, including the governing body, has established a wide range of strategies to check on the school’s work and to ensure pupils’ good progress. Thorough tracking systems enable a good, wide range of interventions to take place which support well any pupil falling behind.
Pupils receive good and better teaching. Teachers develop their skills as a result of effective coaching and mentoring by senior leaders.
Pupils behave well, are courteous and display positive attitudes to their learning. In particular, the vast majority remain on task for prolonged periods during lessons.
Whilst pupils make good progress in their academic work, the school also ensures high levels of care and individual support for pupils. Such strategies as the ‘key worker’ for children who require further support enable pupils to feel secure and concentrate on their learning.
