We are a GOOD School!

Article Image  As you know we had our long awaited Ofsted Inspection on Tuesday 23rd & Wednesday 24th February. The final report was   published on 10th March 2016 and we are delighted to announce that our school has been recognised as a ‘Good’ school. This is a credit to all stakeholders in our school.

The school has been on a long journey and faced many challenges but under the leadership of the Executive Headteacher and Executive Leadership Team the staff and Governors have worked hard to move the school from the ‘Requires Improvement’ to ‘Good’ and we are extremely proud of this.


This is a good school

  •  The Executive Headteacher, Associate Headteacher and Deputy Headteachers are ensuring that the school is improving rapidly.
  •  Leaders, including governors, are effective and are having a positive impact on teaching and how well pupils are doing.

  • Pupils feel very safe at school and take responsibility for helping others to stay safe.

  •  Children make good progress in the early years provision and become confident and willing learners.
