In June 2018 Ofsted judged us to be a Good school in all categories and Outstanding in Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare. Key strengths include:
- Leaders take swift and decisive action to ensure standards and quality of provision are good
- Governors are effective and inclusive in their support and challenge of the school
- Teachers and teaching assistant know pupils well. They enjoy excellent relationships with pupils and set interesting work that excites and inspires.
- High proportions of pupils, including those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities, achieve the expected standards for their age.
- The personal development, behaviour and welfare of pupils are outstanding. Staff guide pupils to understand and embody the school’s values. As a result, pupils are exceptionally tolerant, respectful and responsible.
- Pupils’ welfare is the top priority for leaders. When concerns are raised, not a moment is wasted in ensuring that pupils are kept safe and families receive the support they need. Records are securely stored, detailed and immaculately maintained.
- The curriculum is exciting and well planned.
- Children make a strong start to their education due to the highly effective EYFS team.
In addition to OFSTED inspections, as a Church of England school we have a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) inspection. In June 2017 we were judged to be Good.
Noted strengths include:
- Centrality of the school’s distinctive vision which is known, understood and lived by the whole school community.

Key Actions include:

- Consolidate the recent improvements in leadership to ensure that recent improvements in pupil achievement are developed further.
