Ofsted Report 2013

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils 

This is a good school.

  • This happy and welcoming school, that does as its motto says, and ‘changes lives.’ 
  • All pupils achieve well. From low individual starting points, they make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics. 
  • Children make good progress in the Early Years Foundation Stage. 
  • Teaching is good and outstanding practice is evident. Pupils achieve well because all staff have high aspirations for pupils to succeed. 
  • Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes are good. They are keen to do well and meet the school’s high aims.
  • Pupils say, and their parents fully agree, that they feel completely safe.
  • The interesting range of activities offered by the school makes an outstanding contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. 
  • The leadership of the headteacher and the executive headteacher is outstanding. Together with phase leaders and the governors, they have, despite staff changes, improved the quality of teaching and pupils’ achievement well in the last two years
