Ofsted Report October 2014

Below are a few quotes from the report.



  • Senior staff set good examples to all staff and are skilled in observing teaching and setting increasingly challenging but achievable targets for subject and middle leaders to aspire to.
  • As a result, the quality of teaching is now good and constantly improving as all staff, including those new to the school and the profession, strive to meet these high expectations.


  • The behaviour of pupils is good. Pupils are polite and considerate towards each other and they respond well to the care that all adults show them.
  • Pupils play and work together well. Classrooms are calm and orderly. Pupils take responsibilities seriously and support others.
  • Pupils are well prepared for keeping themselves safe in later life.
  • The school works well with pupils who sometimes find it difficult to manage their own emotions and social skills.


  • Across the school, pupils are ambitious and aim high. They respond well to staff’s high expectations and good example
  • There is a good atmosphere for learning and pupils respond well in their behaviour and positive attitudes. Classrooms are attractive and orderly.
  • Pupils also refine and develop their knowledge and understanding in response to skilful and persistent questioning.

Pupils’ Achievement

  • All groups of pupils achieve well from their individual starting points
  • Pupils’ achievement in reading is good and sometimes outstanding. They make very quick gains in understanding letters and their sounds (phonics)
  • Pupils make at least good progress in writing. They write neatly and take a pride in their handwriting.
  • Pupils’ achievement in mathematics is good.
  • The most-able pupils reach above average standards and the results of national tests reflect this.
