Our Ofsted report

Following the short inspection of our school in March 2017 Ofsted found that our school continues to be good. Key comments included:

'Inspection evidence shows that pupils are deeply engaged in learning because it is well matched to their interest and needs.  As a result, pupils' enthusiasm is ignited.  All pupils, including the most able, produce quality work, such as their creative writing in response to the 'Survival' topic.  Pupils of all ages talk with pride about their learning in a range of curriculum subjects, including science and design technology, and are keen to improve their work.'

'Pupils overwhelmingly say they feel safe in school.  They are very clear that they know who to talk to if they have a worry or concern and that adults will help them.  Parents strongly agree that their children are happy, safe and well looked after in school.'

'Teachers speak highly of the support they receive and strongly feel that they are a part of a united team.  The federated governing body is united in driving improvement in both schools.  Parents were unanimous in recommending the school and commented appreciatively on the opportunities their children have to work in partnership with pupils from the partner school.'

'Evidence from this inspection shows that pupils are highly engaged and motivated in their learning because the curriculum is based on their interests and needs.  The curriculum is linked strongly to the school's unique location.  For example pupils in the key stage 1 and Reception class make good use of the local environment, such as engaging in treasure hunt activities to help them learn about time.'

'The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school.  You have built a strong leadership and a teaching team who all say that you support and challenge them to strengthen their leadership and improve their practice as teachers.  Governors and parents strongly agree that your leadership is instrumental to improvements at the school.'
