Dear parents /carers,

Welcome back! I hope you had an enjoyable Easter holiday and were able to make the most of the beautiful weather. We are delighted to be able to share with you the results of our recent OFSTED inspection that took place on the 2nd and 3rd of April.

The school’s Overall Effectiveness has been judged as ‘Good’, with ‘Good’ judgements in each of the key areas. We are obviously extremely pleased that this recognises the hard work of all the pupils, the care and expertise of our staff and the invaluable support from parents and carers.

We are particularly pleased that the report recognises that ‘pupils’ conduct around the school and in social times is excellent’. It describes the pupils as ‘polite and considerate to one another and adults’ and this is something that staff and visitors to our school have always commented on. A big thank you to all the parents that contributed to the OFSTED survey on Parent View - the response was overwhelmingly positive and was very much appreciated.

The full report is available on our website here:


If you would like to request a printed copy, please contact the school reception.

We have already begun working on the areas that need further improvement and look forward to sharing our work on this with you in the future.

Kind regards,

Mrs Cox

Head Teacher
