Ofsted Inspection 2-3rd March 2016      

Official Finding - Good

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school:  

  • The school is a friendly, inclusive and welcoming community.
  • Leaders and governors have successfully addressed the key areas of improvement identified during the previous inspection. The quality of teaching and learning has improved.
  • Better teaching and assessment has lifted pupils’ achievement at the end of all key stages. Standards are higher in reading, writing and mathematics than at the time of the previous inspection. As a result, Year 6 pupils are better prepared for the next stage in their learning.
  • Pupils’ attainment was much higher than the national average in all subjects at the end of Key Stage 1 in 2015.
  • Teaching effectively equips pupils with competent phonics skills (letters and the sounds that they make). This helps younger pupils to read confidently and contributes to their good progress in reading and writing.
  • Children in the early years are keen to learn and make good progress.
  • Deaf pupils make rapid progress, both personally and academically.
  • Leaders and governors give safeguarding procedures an extremely high priority. They rigorously check that arrangements are up to date and effective. As a result, pupils are very safe and secure.
  • Teaching makes a strong contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding.
  • Governors have strengthened the role they play in the school’s work since the previous inspection, ensuring that they continue to support and challenge school leaders effectively.
  • Most pupils are polite and well behaved. They enjoy school and attend regularly.
