Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school
- Following the previous inspection in January 2015,
the headteacher lost no time in establishing her
uncompromising ambition for the school’s success.
She sought the necessary expertise and acted
quickly on advice. As a result, the quality of
teaching, learning and assessment has improved
- All teachers check pupils’ progress vigilantly and
accurately. They carefully plan each lesson so that
pupils systematically build on their prior learning
and progress quickly towards the long-term goals
appropriate for their age.
- Pupils of all ages know exactly that is expected of
them in any lesson. They are rightly proud of how
well they are doing.
- Pupils believe they are trusted and valued. They
look out for each other at playtimes. In lessons,
pupils remain alert, interested and self-motivated.
- Children in the early years make good progress
because of the interesting and purposeful
activities planned for them each day. Children
settle quickly. They understand what is expected
of them and they are keen to do what is right.
- Governors contribute knowledgeably to directing
the school’s future. They hold leaders rigorously to
account for continued rates of pupils’ progress and
further raising standards.
