“I think my brain will explode it I think any harder” – Key Stage 2 pupil.
During our last OFSTED inspection (March 2014) we were rated as a good school because ‘pupils learn well because they have very good relationships with teachers. They want to live up to the teachers’ high expectations’.
We are a good school because:
Attainment and progress at both key stages are good.
Pupils learn well because they have very good relationships with teachers. They want to live up to the teachers’ high expectations.
Teaching makes use of learning materials which excite pupils and help them to learn quickly.
Pupils feel safe. Pupils from different year groups play well with each other and look after each other.
Pupils have very good manners. They are welcoming to visitors, and are respectful to teachers and each other.
Leaders and managers are ambitious for the school. They have brought about improvements in teaching and achievement because they act very quickly to address any areas of weakness.
The governing body’s work has improved and is now good. Governors are very clear about what good or better teaching looks like
