Inspection date 24 April 2018

 

This school continues to be Good.

 

Inspection report letter extracts

 

 

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the

last inspection. You and your leadership team have developed a very inclusive school

where all pupils can develop and thrive. You are successfully building the capacity of

senior and middle leaders to improve the school even further.

 

Parents, carers and staff praise all aspects of the school’s work. Parents who spoke with

me and those who responded to Ofsted’s online questionnaire highlighted the pastoral

care and support provided by the school as being particularly strong. Staff are equally

proud to be part of the school and value your commitment and leadership. The school is

an orderly community where pupils behave well and look after each other. Relationships

are warm and based on mutual respect at all levels.

 

Governors know the school well and are highly committed. They are supportive but also

challenge school leaders when they believe the school can do even better. Leaders and

governors have accurately evaluated the school’s performance to identify strengths and

areas for development.

 

You have addressed the areas for improvement identified at the previous inspection.

Pupils’ attainment and progress have improved consistently in reading and mathematics

over the last few years. As a result of greater analysis and assessment of individual pupils’ needs, the majority of pupils now make very strong progress to achieve above average standards in reading and mathematics by the end of Year 6. However, leaders recognise that further work needs to be done to improve the attainment and progress of boys and the most able pupils in writing.

 

This is a school where leaders know each individual pupil’s needs and abilities. As a result, all pupils, including those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities, are being well supported to achieve the best they can. One parent described being, ‘overwhelmed by the inclusive provision’. Another parent said, ‘All pupils value and learn so much from each other in this school.’
