The children in fancy dress to raise money for Children in Need

The children have raised and amazing £1372.74 for Children in Need. This is up £150 on last years total. The day was spent in various ways with the children coming in to school in fancy dress and holding activities such as a cake sale. A great amount for a good charity. Well done to all.

We’re an Ofsted rated ‘Good’ School | November 20, 2014

On the 15th and 16th of October 2014 we were visited by Ofsted for a full school inspection . During the inspection the following areas were scrutinised:

  • leadership and management
  • behaviour and safety of pupils
  • quality of teaching
  • achievement of the pupils
  • early years provision

In all of these areas the school performed very well and was awarded a good status. During the inspection we were also complimented on various aspects of the school with one inspector stating that he had “never seen a better school environment anywhere”.

On teaching Ofted said:

Teaching is good across the school. Teachers have high expectations of what pupils can achieve and ensure that the pace of learning and level of challenge usually enables pupils to concentrate and be fully involved in learning.
