Our last Ofsted Inspection took place in February 2013 when we were judged to be a good school.
Here are some of the key points from the Inspection Report:
- Standards have risen since the previous inspection due to significant improvement to the quality of teaching. This is now good across the school and some is outstanding.
- Pupils’ exemplary attitudes to learning make a significant contribution to their good learning and achievement.
- Pupils feel safe and know how to stay safe in school.
- Behaviour is good. Pupils understand what bullying is and cannot recall it ever happening.
- The headteacher’s drive for improvement is supported well by the acting deputy, all staff, governors and pupils.
- The school develops pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding well.
