Ofsted Report Dated 8/9th May 2024 - Ofsted Report

  Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

  • Pupils enjoy coming to school. There are warm, positive relationships between staff and
    pupils. Pupils say teachers ‘take care of them’ and Samson the therapy dog helps them if
    they feel sad. Pupils feel safe and know who to talk to if they have a concern. They
    understand what bullying is.
  • The school has high expectations for all pupils. Pupils respond to these and achieve well
    in reading and mathematics. Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities
    (SEND) know that staff go ‘above and beyond’ to help them achieve.
  • Pupils expand their interests through the wide range of clubs available. Many educational
    trips and experiences bring learning to life for pupils.
  • The school has developed a broad and ambitious curriculum. It sets out what pupils will
    learn and by when from Nursery to Year 6. Pupils achieve in line with others nationally for
    reading and writing. Pupils achieve above others nationally in multiplication checks. This is
    because there is a well-considered mathematics curriculum.
  • Well-trained staff teach phonics daily and hear children read. Books that pupils read
    match the sounds they already know. This helps them become fluent readers quickly
  • Pupils with SEND are included fully in the life of the school. Pupils’ individual needs are
    identified precisely.
  • Children in the early years are enthusiastic about learning. Priority is placed on developing
    children's communication and language skills.
  • The school has a clear expectation that ‘every school day counts’
