Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

OFSTED  MONITORING  VISIT - November 2017

"Senior leaders and governors are taking effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement identified at the recent section 5 inspection in order for the school to become a good school." OFSTED November 2017

Below are extracts from OFSTED's monitoring visit conducted on Thursday 19th October 2017.

 "The vision to offer an outstanding education to pupils is very strong. The pace of improvement has accelerated, expectations have risen and morale has improved."

"Well-chosen approaches to the teaching of reading and mathematics are already having an impact on raising standards."

"For the first time in a long time, there is capacity within the school to make the improvements needed."

"I observed ‘Terrific Thursday’ with you in key stage 2 where pupils take part in art, music, public speaking, cookery and physical education. Pupils were sensibly behaved while enjoying the exciting activities. Similarly, ‘Wonderful Wednesdays’ in key stage 1 enrich pupils’ learning but also provide a well-planned opportunity for teachers to be released from class to plan, meet and develop their skills together."

"The new chair provides strong leadership and ensures that members of the governing body challenge leaders."
