A message from Mrs Chadwick:

Our latest Ofsted inspection at the end of October 2014 received outstanding in all areas of the framework. We are so proud of this is marvellous achievement, particularly under the new more challenging framework, however it’s one that the entire school community justly deserves.

I am thrilled that the inspector recognised the tireless hard work, commitment, dedication and diligent professionalism that occur every day across our school and how the school has improved over time because of the relentless drive for excellence.

The Ofsted Inspector also noted that all pupils overall make outstanding progress from Early Years to Year 6, despite varying starting points and additional needs, because teaching is consistently of a very high standard. Additionally, they acknowledged that the school environment and curriculum is vibrant, safe and welcoming and learning is fun, behaviour is excellent and pupils are overwhelmingly positive about life in our school.

Our “outstanding” judgement will not bring complacency and we continue to share a constant desire for development and high standards. We have a detailed School Evaluation Plan and School Improvement Plan where we assess growth and we were pleased that the inspectors agreed with our school focus to improve our standards in spelling.

The fantastic results we received recognised the exceptional team effort: children, staff, parents and governors have all had their part to play. We now continue to drive standards forward and ensure each child in our school enjoys coming to school and receives the right education to develop theirlearning in a safe, welcoming and vibrant school.
