Ofsted and Standards

In this section...

We last had an Ofsted Inspection in 2015. We were graded "Good" overall and in all areas.

The report states:

- Since the previous inspection, the headteacher and senior team have worked tirelessly to improve teaching and pupils’ achievement.

- Pupils’ attainment at the end of Key Stages 1 and 2 is significantly above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics, and continues to rise.

- Pupils’ behaviour is good. They are polite and friendly and show respect for each other and adults.

- Teaching is good and some is outstanding. Teachers have good subject knowledge and use questioning well to develop pupils’ understanding. Their marking is of a high quality.
