Quotes taken from the latest OFSTED Inspection

“Pupils’ attainment in reading, writing and mathematics was above average in 2018 and a very high proportion reached the expected standards in these subjects.”

“Pupils’ reading skills are of a very high order. Our observations of pupils’ reading, in class and individually, showed that pupils are consistently developing habits of becoming regular and enthusiastic readers. Pupils read with fluency and understanding.”

“Work in books shows that most pupils are confident in their number work. They show a good understanding of mathematical reasoning and are able to solve complex number problems confidently and apply earlier mastered concepts to unfamiliar situations.”

“Leaders have used the pupil premium funding to provide specific staff and resources to support a number of initiatives to promote the attainment of disadvantaged pupils in reading, writing and mathematics. As a result, school assessment information shows that the small number of disadvantaged pupils attain as well as others in the school.”

“Leaders ensure that all safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose and that effective action is taken to safeguard pupils. Training is up to date, records are meticulously maintained and the pre-employment checks on teachers and other staff are thorough.”
