Ready to Teach, Ready to Learn
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. "We report directly to Parliament and we are independent and impartial. We inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
Every week, we carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England, and publish the results on our website. To find an inspection report, go to the Find an inspection report page. We work with providers which are not yet good to promote their improvement, monitoring their progress and sharing with them the best practice we find". -
This is a good school which is improving rapidly because every member of staff ensures every child has the best possible opportunity to achieve well academically, personally, physically and creatively. Pupils thrive in a welcoming, positive, caring environment to become confident, young people who want to learn.
Children in the early years get a good start to their education. In Key Stage 1, teachers build upon this good start and pupils’ achievements have recently improved. Pupils in Key Stage 2 make good progress, because they apply themselves well to the tasks they are given to complete. By the end of Year 6, most pupils are achieving the levels expected for their age.
All groups of pupils make good progress, including those who are eligible for additional funding through pupil premium, those with special educational needs and those who are most able.
Good teaching ensures that pupils learn effectively. Teachers provide pupils with interesting work to do which motivates and encourages them to learn.
Pupils show high levels of respect to adults and each other. They are particularly adept at helping each other if someone gets stuck. Staff have very high expectations and a consistent approach to managing pupils’ behaviour. Pupils feel very safe in school and have a good awareness of how to keep safe in the wider community. Their attendance is improving rapidly. Pupils are very proud of themselves and of their school.
The headteacher has created a very effective team who work well together. All staff carry out their roles effectively. The systems the school uses to review the quality of the school’s work are excellent and are having a positive impact on raising pupils’ achievements and the quality of teaching.
The governors are very knowledgeable and well informed. They are also proactive in ensuring every child has the best possible chance to succeed. They challenge the school effectively and provide very good support.
