Personal development, behaviour and welfare is OUTSTANDING:
"The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding."
"Pupils demonstrate an exceptional understanding of the school’s values in their behaviours. They work hard and try their best. They do not worry if they do not get things right first time because they know that an adult or friend will help them. Pupils willingly offer their thoughts and ideas and listen to each other. As a result, they are confident learners who work well both together and independently."
"Pupils understand and appreciate the whole school behaviour and reward system because it is used consistently across the school."
"Pupils’ behavior in the dining room is impeccable. Pupils are polite and courteous to each other. They respect the positive environment that has been created for them."
Leadership & Management:
"Leaders are aspirational for pupils in their care. They are committed to helping them achieve the best possible outcomes. As a result, pupils achieve high standards in reading, writing and maths by the end
of key stage 1."
"Parents hold the school in high regard. They appreciate their involvement in school life and the rich experiences their children receive. Staff are proud and happy to work at the school. They are well supported by senior leaders to develop their practice."
"Pupils say they feel safe in school and parents agree. Pupils feel able to ask an adult for help when they need it because they have developed trusting and positive relationships with staff."
Outcomes for Pupils:
"At the end of key stage 1 pupils achieve consistently strong outcomes. Attainment is above the national average in reading, writing and maths at both expected standard and greater depth. In 2018, outcomes improved further so that attainment in reading was in the highest 10% nationally."
Early Years Provision:
"Children have good relationships with adults and routines are well established. They listen carefully and follow instructions. Children access resources and work well both independently and with each other."
Bridges - "Children are well supported by experienced and qualified staff in a calm, nurturing environment, Practitioners adapt provision to meet the need of the very youngest children."
Teaching, Learning & Assessment:
"The curriculum ensures that pupils experience a breadth of learning. It contributes very effectively to their social, moral, spiritual and cultural development."
"The content of lessons is interesting so pupils are motivated and excited to learn."
