Dear parents and carers.
Today a link will be forwarded to you to access the Ofsted report from the two-day inspection on 6th and 7thJune 2023.
I am delighted to inform you that the school was graded as follows:
The quality of education GOOD
Behaviour and attitudes GOOD
Personal development GOOD
Leadership and management GOOD
Early years provision GOOD
The inspection was detailed and rigorous, covering every aspect of school life.
We are particularly pleased that special mention is made to the provision for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, which is referenced as ‘expert’. Likewise, the judgements relating to safeguarding at the school were described as stringent and effective; with staff providing ‘a front-line service’ for the community. This is pleasing to hear as protecting children from harm is at the heart of much of our work. Behaviour was seen as a strength with bullying rare and children having confidence and trust in their teachers to support their wellbeing.
Clearly, academic provision was key to the inspection, and rightly so. It was recognised that the curriculum is well constructed and sequenced and that academic ambition is high for all.
I would like to thank all the children, staff and governors who contributed to the inspection.
The inspection report is available in full on the school website and can also be viewed via the link below. Ofsted will be updating its online system with the revised report before the end of the term.
