Ofsted (July 2017) stated that we remain a GOOD school. Please follow the link below for the full report.

Ofsted (Novermber 2012) reflected that our School had improved to be rated as "Good with Outstanding for Safety and Behaviour". Below are the highlights from the report:

  • The dedication and hard work of the whole teaching team, well led by the headteacher and the leader of the behaviour, emotional and social difficulties unit (BESD Unit), have ensured good progress since the last inspection in February 2010.
  • The leadership of teaching is good. Senior leaders have been very successful in raising the quality of teaching which now includes examples of outstanding practice. In so doing, they have raised pupils’ achievement.
  • Governors, too, have played their part by challenging the school to improve further and checking that teaching is good.
  • The staff take excellent care of the pupils and know the families extremely well. Parents’ views are very supportive of the school.
  • The provision for pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good. Pupils get along extremely well together.
  • Pupils who are registered with the BESD Unit blend into the classes, receive good support and learn from the outstanding behaviour modelled by other pupils. Pupils have a good understanding of safety. Pupils say ‘There is always someone there for you.’
  • The school provides a welcoming and attractive environment in which the pupils can do their best. Staff are wholeheartedly committed to the school and to its children
