We had our most recent Ofsted in January 2018 when we were described as a good school. The following summary highlights our many strengths, as well as detailing some areas for development:
This is a good school.
The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.
All staff are committed to the school's clear focus on pupils' broader development, safety, happiness and well-being.
The school's Christian ethos and community and global involvement contribute well to pupils' personal development.
The pupils are polite, courteous, confident, articulate and keen to do their best.Children feel safe in school, and have great confidence in their teachers and other adults in school to help with any problems they have.
Safeguarding is effective. The school has a strong culture of safeguarding. All staff staff understand that keeping pupils safe is their top priority.
All safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose, procedures to recruit staff safely are fully understood and used well. Child protection
All safeguarding arrangements are fit for purpose, procedures to recruit staff safely are fully understood and used well. Child protection records are detailed, very well organised and stored securely.
Governors are very committed to the school. They also know the school well because you provide with high-quality information and they visit regularly to check, first-hand, the accuracy of what they are told.
Reception is well led and teaching, from teachers and teaching assistants, is strong.
The plans to address areas that need to improve are detailed and appropriate.
Expectations and levels of challange are high across subjects.
It is not yet an outstanding school because
Although pupils make reasonable progress in mathematics by the end of Year 6, their progress lags behind that made in English. Ensure that pupils' progress in mathematics accelerates by regularly expecting them to reason and explain their thinking when solving problems.
Seek the views of parents to understand any concerns they might have, and take action, if appropriate, to address these concerns.
