Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education) is a Government Department that works with the DfES to monitor all schools by carrying out inspections every 3-4 years.

We are very proud of our most recent Ofsted inspection in 2022. Here are some quotes from the inspection: 

"Pupils learn and achieve well. They work hard and try their best. Teachers take pupils’ interests into account when they plan lessons. The diversity of languages and cultures is celebrated so that all pupils are valued and respected."

"Pupils feel safe and secure. They know that adults in the school are ready to help them when they need it. Pupils are kind and caring and help each other out. Pupils live and learn by the school’s values which underpin all that the school does."

"Senior leadership is strong and inspiring and has made sure that the school has improved. There is a strong team of dedicated and talented leaders and teachers who, in their own words, said: ‘This is a really happy place, we are a family. We are valued, trusted, and feel we have opportunities to develop our skills and expertise."

"Many parents and carers commented on how happy their children are to come to a school where there is a strong sense of community and a family feeling."
