Ofsted carried out a full inspection of our school on the 13th December 2022.
Our school was assessed as continuing to be a 'GOOD' school.
The report highlights many signficant strengths of our school including:
Pupils thoroughly enjoy coming to school. The school’s motto, ‘nurturing every talent’, is indeed pupils’ experience during their time here. Pupils highly value the wide range of opportunities they have for personal development. From camping to participating in the three tors event, pupils build independence and the ability to think for themselves. This begins in the Nursery where children develop their talents and learn to work and play together, both indoors and outdoors.
Pupils feel happy and well cared for. Relationships between adults and pupils are warm and encouraging. Consequently, trust is high, and pupils feel safe. Bullying is very rare, and pupils are confident that adults deal effectively with any worries they might have.
Leaders are ambitious for all pupils. They have carefully considered the content of the curriculum to ensure that pupils develop an understanding of global issues as well as their locality. All pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), learn the full breadth of the curriculum subjects.
A love of reading pervades the school. Children in the Nursery and Reception listen to a range of stories and rhymes. This widens their vocabulary and continues throughout the school. Younger pupils who are at the early stages of reading quickly develop the knowledge and skills needed to secure fluency. They read books that match the sounds they know, which builds their confidence. Older pupils study carefully chosen texts in depth.
