Ofsted Report

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education.  It is responsible for inspecting and regulating education and training for learners of all ages.

The infant school was last inspected in January 2023 and the junior school in March 2022.  Both of our schools are graded as good.  The latest reports are available to view on the Ofsted website.  To read either of these reports, please click on the links below:

'Pupils talk excitedly about the range of learning that they do at school.’


‘Around school pupils show high levels of motivation in the activities and learning they take part in. They talk about the good behaviour they see. Pupils are clear they feel safe and have trusted adults to help them with worries.’

' Pupils' wider development is a high priority for leaders.  The personal, social and health education curriculum is effective.  It gives pupils a moral steer.  Pupils learn about important world events.  This curriculum broadens their horizons.'

'Pupils take pride in their work.  They behave well in lessons and around school.'
