Essentially a massive thank you HeadTeachers. A massive group hug to you all. These last few months have been incredibly difficult. And you have been shelters, protectors and guides. Thanks to Trusts, CEOs who like mine have been amazing to all their colleagues.

Our School 'Opens a World of Knowledge'

An exciting world of knowledge opens-up for pupils at our school where the children blossom and enjoy learning, according to a recent Ofsted report.

 

Our staff ‘form strong bonds with pupils and families’ making sure children feel safe and flourish.

 

“With warmth and firm but gentle guidance, pupils blossom.  Pupils make healthy friendships and are well prepared for Junior school,” says the report.

 

“Staff expect pupils to listen carefully, take part in activities and do their best.  Pupils rise to the occasion.  They are lively and enthusiastic about learning and thrive on the well-deserved praise they receive for taking part and trying,” it adds.

 

The inspection was carried out at the end of September and everyone at the school is incredibly proud that we continue to be a Good school.

 

We are especially delighted that Ofsted recognised that no pupils are left out or behind in our school and that we are a happy and welcoming school family.

 

It is fantastic to have the wonderful achievements of our children recognised and we also want to thank the support and contribution from our parents, friends and the wider community.

 

The inspector praised the behaviour of our children and said:  “They copy staff’s good manners, consideration and kindness.  The school’s atmosphere is calm and secure.  It is a place where children can be children and enjoy learning.”

 

“The Executive Headteacher and her team have transformed the atmosphere in the school.  They have revised the curriculum and raised expectations of pupils’ behaviour.  The school looks outwards, to try and involve parents more fully in their children’s education,” said the report.

 

Our love of reading non-fiction was also highlighted in the report which said pupils knew reading was an ‘essential and natural part of their daily lives’ with children taking their own books to school to share their fascination with a subject.

 

There was mention of our wonderful reading cafe where parents are welcomed to spend time with their children whose knowledge is expanded by the emphasis on reading and writing which is reinforced throughout our school.

 

Children with special educational needs do well here and expert staff work well with professionals to identify children from the early years onwards who may need extra support.  This help enables them to catch-up and not miss out on any class activities.
