Summary of Ofsted Report 2014

 

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is an outstanding school.

This highly successful and popular school is a haven of big opportunities for every pupil.

There is a wonderful focus on developing the academic, personal qualities, skills and interests of all pupils. This leads to a highly positive and nurturing atmosphere in which to learn.

The inspirational and charismatic head teacher and other senior leaders have worked tirelessly with staff and governors to significantly improve all aspects of the school’s work since the last inspection, including the quality of teaching and pupil achievement.

The team spirit is exceptionally high because all staff are valued and supported. Staff and governors share a vision of working as one for the benefit of all the pupils.

The school has excellent relationships with parents and the wider community and receives considerable praise for its work.

Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes to learning are outstanding. Their pride in the school was evident in their eagerness to tell inspectors how much they enjoy school.

 

Pupils feel safe and secure because the school rightly ensures that the care and safety of pupils are of a high quality.

The exceptionally positive relationships pupils have with staff help them to grow in confidence and develop a ‘can do’ mentality.

Pupils are given a wealth of opportunities to enjoy sport, music and the arts and learn lifesaving skills.

Teaching is inspiring and highly imaginative. Pupils of all abilities are stretched and motivated to achieve as well as they can. Teaching is never less than good and much is outstanding.

Pupils throughout the school, including the most able, achieve exceptionally well, reaching standards that are consistently significantly above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics by the end of Year 6.

Children in the early years make excellent progress from their different starting points. Despite this, the attainment of boys is not as high as that of girls, particularly in literacy and mathematics when they enter Year 1. The very best use is not always made of the outside learning area in supporting the attainment of boys.
