Summary of Ofsted report 2104
All leaders including governors provide effective leadership. Their drive for improvement has led to good improvements in pupils’ achievement and in teaching since the last inspection.
All groups of pupils make good progress in reading, writing and mathematics from their starting points.
Teaching is typically good. Information about what pupils know and understand is used well to inform teachers what pupils need to learn next.
The teaching of reading and writing is a strength throughout the school.
The few pupils who are disabled and who have special educational needs are given work at the right level and this means they progress as well as others.
Good teaching in the early years provides children with a positive start to school life.
Pupils’ progress and the quality of teaching is checked rigorously and often. The information is then used to identify useful training for staff.
A strong atmosphere of mutual respect exists throughout the school. Pupils’ moral and social development is a key strength.
Teachers are carefully introducing a system of assessment to meet the requirements of the new national curriculum.
Pupils enjoy school, feel safe and work hard. Their good behaviour and positive attitudes contribute well to learning.
Governors provide a good balance of help and challenge, and are ambitious for continued improvement.
There is effective partnership working with other local schools.
