Ofsted Report

In our most recent section 8 inspection (January 2016) we were recognised, once again, as a 'good' school. 

The inspection report is written in the form of a letter to myself as Headteacher. You can read the entire report by clicking on the link below.

You, and all staff, have created a nurturing and purposeful atmosphere that helps pupils to learn and promotes their all-round development and well-being very effectively.

Pupils feel a sense of belonging and show great pride in their work.

Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is promoted exceptionally well.

Pupils from many different backgrounds work and play happily together.

There is a strong teamwork among staff, leaders and governors. 

Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school... 'this is a great school with dedicated, friendly and approachable staff who are always available when needed'.

In May 2014 we received an interim assessment statement which said that 'I am pleased to inform you that the interim assessment of your child’s school indicates that the school’s performance has been sustained'. This takes into account:

  • Pupils attainment
  • Pupil progress
  • Pupil attendance
  • Results from parentview

As a result of this, and due to our results (which you can click on below), OFSTED maintain that we are at least a good school. You can read the report by clicking here.

Prior to that, we were inspected in February 2011 where OFSTED stated that we are a ‘good school where many different backgrounds blend together harmoniously and happily’. They said that we gave ‘outstanding care, guidance and support’ and this works to ‘ensure that the school succeeds in its stated aim to provide a warm inclusive and stimulating environment’. ‘School is one big happy family…’ (OFSTED 2011)
