Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school.

  • Standards at the end of Year 2 and Year 6 are above national averages in reading, writing and mathematics. All groups of pupils, including the most able, make good progress in their learning, with particularly fast progress in mathematics.

  • Teachers are knowledgeable and skilful in helping pupils to develop their work. They make very good use of the outside environment to provide exciting learning opportunities. Teaching assistants are highly effective in supporting all pupils.

  • Children get off to a good start in the Reception class because teaching is good. Assessment is accurate and pupils make good progress from their starting points.

  • Behaviour is exemplary. Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning. Pupils want to learn and achieve to the best of their ability. They work hard and support each other very well.

  • Pupils feel happy and very safe. This view is fully supported by all parents and carers. Pupils thrive and develop into confident young people who are fully prepared for the next steps in their education.

  • Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is fully supported through a well-designed and exciting range of subjects. Core values of respect and tolerance for others are well embedded into school life and practised by adults and pupils alike.

  • The acting headteacher and head of school are ably supported by a strong governing body. They are fully committed to providing an excellent education for all pupils. Their actions are having a positive impact on raising standards and improving teaching. The school is well prepared for changes in the way pupils’ progress is checked and for the implementation of the new National Curriculum.

The school inspection report often helps parents and carers decide if they want to send their child to the school. In particular it includes an overall score for how good a school is:

grade 1 (outstanding)
grade 2 (good)
grade 3 (satisfactory)
grade 4 (inadequate)

Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS)

As a Church of England Primary School we also have a SIAMS inspection every 5 years. In November 2014 the school was inspected and we are really pleased to successfully gain a Good with Outstanding worship.

Ofsted and Parent View

Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school.

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.

By sharing your views, you’ll be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child’s school. Or, if you want to, view the results for any school in England.
