On the 16th January the school received a short Section 8 inspection of ‘good’ schools. We are delighted with the outcome and very proud that the hard work of children, staff, governors and parents has been recognised.Here are some of the comments from the inspector’s letter to the Headteacher:
The school’s motto of ‘growing, caring and learning together’ is at the heart of everything that you do. You have created a positive, nurturing community. There is a healthy balance between compassion for the pupils and ambition for what they can each achieve in the future.
You know the school well and lead it with energy and a clear sense of purpose…..Staff feel valued and are proud to work at the school. …You provide pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum. Pupils study a wide range of topics, many of which involve them in trips and visits.
Parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school. They are united in their views that their children are happy, safe and well looked after. …One parent simply said this is ‘a fantastic school’.
Pupils …are certain that no bullying takes place in school. Staff rapidly sort out any issues if pupils do fall out with each other. Staff value pupils’ opinions and views..….
The governing body is passionate about the school. As one governor said, ‘We are proud to be a part of this school.’
You encourage the teachers to deliver high-quality teaching in their lessons and this has a positive impact on how well pupils achieve.
