On September 14th and September 15th 2016 we were inspected by OFSTED.

The inspection was carried out under the new, more stringent OFSTED framework for Inspections that came into force in September 2015, with additional changes made to the framework at the start of this academic year. There were two inspectors who observed learning, spoke with children, looked at work in all subject areas, scrutinised school policies and procedures and met with school staff before arriving at their judgements, which are outlined below:

Overall effectiveness


Effectiveness of leadership and management


Quality of teaching, learning and assessment


Personal development, behaviour and welfare


Outcomes for pupils


Early years provision
