Ofsted report 20-21 March 2018.
We are very pleased that our school has been judged as being “Good” in all areas of the Ofsted framework.
Our staff and governors have worked extremely hard during the last two years to meet the recommendations made in the previous Ofsted report. We are particularly proud that we have achieved this without losing focus on what matters to us most of all – the emotional well-being of the children and the provision of a broad, exciting and stimulating curriculum that motivates them as learners. This will always be more important to us than a relentless focus on targets and data.

It’s nearly time for parents to decide which school they would like their child to attend in September 2018 once they leave their Nursery provision. We are holding two sessions where parents can visit us to gain an insight into the life of our school and our approaches to teaching and learning. These will run on Wednesday November 1st at 1:30pm and Thursday November 2nd at 9:30am. Please come along and take this opportunity to ask questions and meet the staff.
