Ofsted

Ofsted inspectors (May 2016) judged our school to be good. The report highlights some extremely positive points, some areas of development which have already been addressed and others that are part of our most recent strategic planning. We are aspiring to be an outstanding school.

You can find the report below.

'The school’s Christian ethos permeates the life of the school, as reflected in the values of Compassion, Forgiveness, Friendship and Trust.'

'Pupils make good progress in reading, in writing and in mathematics.'

'Attendance rates are high. Pupils say they feel safe and enjoy coming to school. Their physical and emotional well-being is given high priority.'

'The school provides a nurturing and harmonious community. It fosters pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development very well.'

'The school prepares pupils well for life in modern Britain. For example, pupils are gaining an understanding of democratic processes, when they vote for their own school councillors. The school also has links with magistrates, who visit the school to teach pupils about the importance of upholding British law, and the curriculum helps develop empathy and understanding for those of other faiths and cultures.'

'Pupil premium funding is used very well. The school carefully diagnoses the individual needs of each pupil and provides appropriate support. The impact of the funding is carefully evaluated.'
