|OFSTED Inspection||Wednesday 8th February 2017|
|Outcome||The school continues to be a Good School|
This is a little bit of what the inspector had to say:
"Since the last inspection, there have been significant changes in the school’s leadership. You were appointed as headteacher in April 2015, a number of new governors have been elected and a new chair of governors is in post. You have created a new leadership team to assist you in the drive to secure high-quality teaching and learning and to create a school that is at least securely good. Building carefully on the practice already in place, you have made significant improvements. These include ensuring that the requirements of the new national curriculum are fully understood by staff and implementing a rigorous approach to assessing and tracking pupils’ progress.You have developed an ethos of high expectations of staff and pupils. "
A few more quotes from the report are:
“Pupils behave well in lessons and around school, they show respect and courtesy to staff and visitors”.
“The systems that have been put in place to make sure that the pupils understand what they are learning and respond to increasingly higher challenges are resulting in improved progress”.
“Priorities are identified through accurate evaluation”.
“An overwhelming majority of parents agree that pupils are safe and well cared for at school”.
We are very proud to be a Good School and will continue on our journey to go from strength to strength.
