Our most recent inspection was in March 2014, where we were found to be overall a Good school. The full report  on our school's performance, including the latest KS2 results can be found here: http://www.education.gov.uk/cgi-bin/schools/performance/school.pl?urn=135196&superview=pri.

A summary of key findings from March 2014 are as follows:

  • Pupils make good progress from starting points which are often well below those typically found. Attainment has risen since the last inspection.
  • The school has successfully narrowed the gap in achievement between pupils entitled to additional government funding and their classmates.
  • Pupils at an early stage of learning English, and those who are more able, are making above average progress.
  • The good curriculum has very effective enrichment opportunities that support pupils’ learning in a range of subjects.
  • Pupils’ attitudes to learning are good. They behave well in and out of lessons. The school ensures they are safe and well cared for.
  • The school successfully manages the high numbers of pupils who leave or join at other than the usual time through effective mentoring and induction systems.
  • The headteacher has provided strong leadership since the last inspection, particularly in improving teaching.
  • The school has sought support and advice from experts when needed. There is a strong culture of continually improving the skills of staff and the governing body.
  • The school has very successfully worked to develop staff’s leadership skills.
  • All leaders, governors and staff in the school share a clear commitment to raising standards and improving teaching and learning.
