What did Ofsted say in 2018?
What Ofsted said about us in 2018:
“This school continues to be good”
‘You create a warm, bright and engaging school environment for pupils. You and your staff have thoughtful and caring interactions with pupils, which are underpinned by the school motto, ‘Believe and achieve’
“Teachers identify the interests of their pupils, which they incorporate into lessons. You actively encourage pupils to prepare for lessons at home.”
‘Relationships between staff and pupils are very strong, and because of this pupils gain confidence in their own skills and are seen to be willing to take risks’
“ Safeguarding is effective. The leadership team has ensured that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose.
Parents indicate that they are confident that you keep pupils safe at school. An example they gave was your supervision of pupils arriving in the morning, which they feel is good.”
‘Teachers continue to plan and provide pupils with greater literacy and numeracy opportunities across the curriculum.’
“Teachers have high expectations of pupils and are planning lessons carefully to build skills and concepts over time. This is evidenced in pupils’ books.”
Pupils explained ‘teachers help by making work easier for us to understand rather than telling us to just get on.’
